Go Pro Costa Rica is excited to announce that we are now offering the amazing new Program called Diving Emergency Medical Responder (DEMR) Course.  The purpose of the Diving Emergency Medical Responder (DEMR) Specialty Course is to provide the knowledge and skills that are necessary for an emergency to help reduce pain, sustain life and minimize the consequences of an injury or sudden illness. The course is to teach students to be prepared, confident, and armed with the knowledge to take control and deal with virtually any non-diving and Diving based medical or traumatic emergency.

Who developed the course ?

This course was developed by “The Diver Medic” Chantelle Newman. She is a member of the WDHOF, a PADI course director and an experienced Pre-hospital Provider. She developed this program when she noted the lack of emergency medical training available to both recreational divers, and Public Safety divers outside of traditional Commercial/Industrial Courses.

This course is the next level up from basic CPR and first Aid training. It sits between First Aid and EMT level so perfect for all learning. It includes many new applications and information on medical assessments and treatment.

1. Certified as an EFR Primary and Secondary Care Provider PADI Rescue Diver, or equivalent certification or have a qualifying certification from another training organization. You must have proof of current CPR and first aid training.

The course will be split into two parts with the online section first followed by the practical skills.
The online section will take around 20 hours to complete and is very comprehensive.

The certification is valid for 2 years on completion.

Standard pricing is $390 for the program including the comprehensive online portion.
