Emergency First Response (EFR)

is an organisation that offers a variety of cutting edge, state-of-the-art training programmes in

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

(CPR), Automated External Defibrillation (AED) and

First Aid

that meet global standards.

From a medical basis, EFR follows internationally recognised guidelines produced by practicing emergency medical professionals. It is supported by the Basic Life Support working group of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation ILCOR.


EFR programmes follow the priority of care used by professional emergency care providers.
First Aid Greece is authorised to teach EFR programmes Educationally, the Emergency First Response programs are well-researched and of instructional design. Studies in first aid training call for simpler, objective oriented and media based course. Research shows that too much information and demand for perfection results in poor performance and lower retention.

The EFR training programs adopt a flexible approach to accommodate different learning styles and needs. They incorporate graphic rich self-study materials, demonstrations on video, positive reinforcement, self-discovery and group practice.

First Aid Greece are fully authorised to teach EFR training programmes in Greece and are a recognised Work Place training facility.
