course information

As a full-service dive center Scuba Dive It provides state-of-the-art hands-on training in CPR, AED, standard first-aid and advanced first-aid including oxygen administration. We offer CPR, AED and first-aid training classes geared to all levels of first responders including family members, workplace first responder’s, coaches and caregivers all the way up through Rescue Divers, Divemasters and Scuba Instructors.

These classes are hands-on performance-based courses for individuals with a duty to respond and provide care in an emergency. Emergency First Response CPR, AED and first-aid training meets all regulatory requirements for first responders in the United States, Central America, South America, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Asia and Europe.

All courses are broken up into two sections.

Section 1: home study During the home study portion of your course, you will watch the appropriate course videos and complete any knowledge reviews in the student participation manual in preparation for your hands-on classroom session.

Section 2: hands-on training During the hands-on training portion of your class, your instructor will guide you through and have you practice all of the skills that you have learned in the home study portion of your class. Practicing your skills under supervision will give you the confidence and knowledge that you will be prepared to respond appropriately in the unlikely event you are involved in an emergency situation.

Note: courses that do not offer hands-on training (online only) in most cases do not meet regulatory standards for first responders or caregivers.
