Building up your courage!


PADI's Emergency First Response Program is PADI's CPR and First Aid certification and we offer several courses that are available in our Singapore based dive centre. All are non-diving courses, suitable for divers and non-divers, young and old alike.

This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice eight skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, and may be in shock or who may have serious bleeding.


You’ll learn to how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient, so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.

Secondary Care (First Aid)

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any hidden charges not stated?

Absolutely no! We don’t like last minute negative surprises hence we won’t spring any on you too.


Am I able to request a room to myself?

Sure! We will do our best to make special arrangement for you subject to availability at the destination resort.

However, in most cases, there will be a surcharge if you are requesting for a room to yourself. Please check with us on the charges.


Do I need to sign up with a partner?

You don’t have to. We will arrange another diver embarking on the same course to be your buddy. In the unlikely event that you are the odd one out, your dive buddy will be your trusty Instructor or Divemaster.

You are recommended to start as early as possible. You will need to go through a theory session prior to the confined pool hence the sooner you start, the earlier you can get into the water!
