Frequently ask questions
I see the Emergency First Response certification is a requirement, where can I take the EFR course?
The Dive company conducts the EFR course. We actually offer a special discount if you take both EFR and Rescue with us. Check out our EFR course page.
Do I need to take the EFR course before the Rescue Diver course if I have a first aid certification from another agency?
There is no need to take an EFR course provided you have been first aid certified in the past 24 months by a qualifying agency (e.g. red cross, etc...).
Why is the dive gear rental not included in the course price?
Many advanced open water students own some of the basic dive gears. Besides, we offer attractive discounts on dive gear purchases to our students. So buying vs. renting becomes a personal choice!
