"I'm clear, your clear, we're all clear"
In some European Countries it is even a legal requirement to hold a driving licence. If a Friend or loved one is hurt or falls suddenly ill, ask yourself honestly, do you think you would know the right thing to do?
The Rescue Diver course cannot be undertaken unless you have a valid First Aid and CPR qualification. The PADI EFR course meets these requirements and is a basic training in CPR and emergency care.
