Barry, Danny and Ian celebrate becoming EFR Instructors with EFRI Trainer Steve Prior.
They all found the course thoroughly entertaining and informative. Especially the interactive teaching methods and positive coaching techniques which they can use to encourage the confidence to care. I’d been looking forward to teaching Danny, Ian and Barry for a while now. They all have a fun outlook on life, and I knew that they would enjoy the teaching methods that I use.
They were a little surprised at how engaging a First Aid Course can be.
They arrived with the impression that First Aid Courses have a tendency to be a little boring where students might have to struggle to be attentive.
But after seeing the techniques that can be used, all three of them are now excited about putting these new ideas into practice. I’m looking forward to the possibility of seeing all of them on a future PADI IDC sometime. They will all make great instructors, they have exactly the right attitude that will make them very successful. Our next EFR Instructor Course will be held on 14th June 2013.
Karl learnt that instead of trying to correct people, often it’s best just to “Allow People to Learn” He learned several techniques that encouraged this to happen.
Karl is an active PADI Divemaster from Essex so any new teaching techniques that come along are put straight into his teaching toolkit.
Come and learn some fantastic teaching techniques on our next EFR Instructor Course. Not only will you learn how to teach other people first Aid Skills, but you’ll also learn some fantastic psychological teaching ideas that you can use whenever you’re teaching another person anything.
If you’re heading towards your PADI Instructor Development Course soon, this is an invaluable course to take.
Don’t hesitate to contact me to get more details.
Kat has a wonderful life ahead of her in the following months.
In just a few days time, she is heading to South Africa for 5 Months where she will be leading dives in Shark infested waters!
Kat is fascinated by Sharks and is really looking forward to showing customers all of the different behaviours that Sharks exhibit.
Kat is also passionate to become a PADI Instructor. She will be joining our PADI Instructor Development Course Later this year at Emperor Divers in Sharm el Sheikh.
Today on the EFR instructor course, Kat got a “taster” by learning some wonderful psychology methods that top instructors use to teach their students.

During the practical sections of the EFR Instructor course, candidates get to experience the interactive methodology that Steve advocates. Many comment on how easy it is to teach this way and that it gives them huge confidence to teach their very first EFR course.
Kev and Will show they have the confidence to teach others to care by qualifying as EFR Instructors. This certification comes just ahead of their PADI Instructor Development Course and has given them a useful insight into learning psychology and some great techniques to use during their instructor training. Contact us for more details of the next course.
I have just taught a couple of wonderful courses. Both courses designed to prepare people for our next IDC in April. The EFR instructor course is always a delight to teach. It shows some fantastic ways to allow people to learn. We look at several ways that we can present information to accommodate different learning styles. It’s great preparation for the PADI IDC as the same techniques can effectively be used to teach Scuba Diving.
Today I have been teaching a Theory Course. In addition to our really succesful Distance Learning Programe, this is a wonderful way to make sure that IDC Candidates are fully prepared for their IDC, and also shows people a simple but very effective way to present theory subjects in a way that is easily understood, and easy to remember.
Life as a Course Director is always a lot of fun!
Come and learn a whole new load of teaching techniques with our New Look EFR instructor course! Come along to see how to make your First Aid courses fun, interactive and full of laughter while your students gain the confidence to care for others. The course will be in Cambridgeshire on the 13th March 2013. It will include all Instructor Materials including EFR Instructor Manual, 3 consumer manuals, 3 DVD’s 3 sets of Exam papers, some bandages, a Care at a glance card and a Red carry Bag. Contact me for more details.
For Ray and Julie, this was just the first step of a very exciting journey this year. 2013 will see them get married in Mauritius, and then become PADI Scuba Diving Instructors in Egypt in November.
They got a taste of what their new life will be when they learnt lots of interesting and fun teaching tips during their EFR instructor course. Both Ray and Julie have had experience of teaching in the military, and in the Fire Brigade. So they are both very aware of what makes a good instructor and what makes a bad instructor. They were both delighted to see the techniques that I showed them.
They now are brimming with excitement, and can’t wait to put those methods into use.
For my part, I’m really looking forward to the November PADI IDC at Emeperor Divers in Sharm. I know that there will be lots of deep belly laughter!!
