Course Syllabus

We welcome anyone to enroll in the Emergency First Response® Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) with AED one day course. Our Thai and English EFR® trainers conduct CPR and First Aid classes in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket. The theory lessons and skill objectives are performance-based which means that every student will receive the CPR and First Aid with AED two year internationally recognised course completion card after you have completed all the training objectives.


Patient Care Standards

The Emergency First Response CPR & First Aid course follows the emergency considerations and protocols as developed by the members of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). Current members include the American Heart Association, the Australian Resuscitation Council, and the Resuscitation Council of Asia, and many others.


CPR & First Aid Course Goals

You should not expect to control all the variables in a real emergency. But knowing how to provide adequate care and react appropriately often tips the balance in favour of full recovery instead of a long-term disability, or life versus death.

Learn how to respond to victims of a heart attack or sudden cardiac arrest, unresponsiveness, difficulty breathing, and choking. The person you save by performing CPR and First Aid could be a loved-one, a close friend, or a coworker.
