Providing first aid training can help you generate off-season business and diversify your revenue stream. Reaching out to your community at large and teaching first aid prepares the members of your community to act in an emergency, and it is a great way to introduce them to the world of scuba diving. 

Being an Emergency First Response Instructor or a CPR/First Aid Instructor with another agency is also a requirement for becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor!
