Chris and his Wife Jarunya, are both Emergency First Response Instructor Trainers. In fact Chris was one of the very fist and has also been one of the most active EFR ITs in Asia.

In 2002 Chris traveled to the USA for the release of Emergency First Response Course. And again in October 2003 for the release of the EFR Care for Children Course. He has been actively teaching EFR Instructor Courses ever since. Chris is also a Dive Medic Technician. This is a Commercial Diving Medical Qualification with the training being hospital based. Chris trained in Townsville General Hospital and also with Queensland Ambulance Services.

When possible all our EFR Instructor Courses are team taught by Chris with his Wife. She went to Nursing College and since graduation has been working in the medical profession ever since. She has studied and worked in a variety of countries. These include UK, Canada, USA, and also Australia. Between the two of them, Chris and Jarunya are probably two of the most qualified and experienced EFR Instructor Trainers in Asia!

The EFR CPR / Fist Aid is a vital Instructor rating to have. Within the Dive Industry PADI Rescue Divers need CPR and First Aid training. And, of course, PADI Divemasters and Assistant Instructor also need current CPR and First Aid training. If you are a PADI Instructor: why send your students and consequently income to someone else?

However don’t forget this is a non-diving course, open to divers and also to non-divers. Especially relevant is that the CPR / First Market is one of the biggest markets globally. Chris, for example, has taught the same CPR / First Aid Courses to more non-divers than divers.
