Course Materials

As part of the EFR course fee you will receive, in advance if you book ahead, the EFR manual / workbook in order that you can prepare yourself on the course content. Reading the manual beforehand gives you a much better understanding of what skills practice you'll do. It will also provide you with a great reference book on First Aid in the home, at work or in the car.

Upon completion of the course you will also receive an EFR Certificate and ID Card.

DVD or Video

If you would like to purchase the DVD or Video, used during the course, then ask your instructor, as that will be a great tool for reviewing the skills and scenarios again at a later stage, particularly when you're doing a refresher course 23 or 24 months later.
