BLS (Basic Life Support)  courses meet the CPR and first aid training requirements for the Rescue Diver course and all professional-level ratings.The BLS course is based on internationally recognized medical guidelines for emergency care.


Primary Care (CPR) – This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice eight skills for aiding patients who are breathing, have no heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, may be in shock, or may have serious bleeding. You’ll learn 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) – Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm. You’ll learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.

AED – This course focuses on CPR training and teaching participants how to use an AED (automated external defibrillator). When workplace or governmental requirements specify this training, the CPR & AED course meets the need. This course is integrated into the 3rd Reef Divers Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) course..
