From February LSD will be running monthly mid-week Emergency First Response (EFR) and Enriched Air Diver Specialty Courses to accommodate those who care unable to make the weekends. These courses will take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month:
Emergency First Response (EFR) – £129
Wednesday 18th February: 10:00 – 15:00
The Emergency First Response Course covers both Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid)
Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches participants how to respond to life-threatening emergencies. The course focuses on primary care through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice to make sure participants have the confidence in their ability to provide care when emergency situations arise.
Emergency First Response Secondary Care (first aid) covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening. Participants focus on secondary assessment and first aid through knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice.
This midweek course can also include the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Specialty:
The administration of emergency Oxygen is the initial treatment of most diving accidents. By taking the PADI Oxygen Provider course you will learn how to help yourself and other divers in need of such assistance. You will receive PADI accreditation which can be used towards attaining your Master Scuba Diver rating. Your certification also allows you to purchase 100% medical grade oxygen.
PADI Enriched Air Diver Specialty – £99
Wednesday 18th February: 18.30-21:00
Would you like to spend longer underwater? On many dives underwater time is governed by our no decompression limits. By increasing the oxygen and decreasing the nitrogen content of our breathing gas we can safely increase these limits.
Reducing the amount of nitrogen our body absorbs on a dive also greatly reduces our surface interval allowing us to get back into the water to do dives sooner.
This easy & practical course shows on a computer simulator how to get the best mix for a certain depth and what our limits are for depths & specific nitrox mixes. A lot of divers have enriched air functions on their computers now so feel free to bring these along and we can show you how to operate these on the course.
