About US

Since 2008, our lead instructor trainer Steve Tait has personally trained over 700 individuals including mums, dads, teens, disabled individuals, and coaches, among others. He’s also worked within countless industries including education, aviation, medical, special events, sports, and business.

As one of the only accredited EFR training Centres in Hong Kong, we are a preferred provider for a variety of businesses and individuals looking for quality emergency response training. 

Emergency Response Courses

Our primary and secondary care course services help you prepare for any emergency. However, we also provide primary and secondary care services to DB Pirates, Valley RFC, Lantau Boat Club, iGym, sporting tours, sports festivals, Team Fear and many more. Our courses can be customised as required, but each will follow the key requirements and skills outlined by the EFR. 


Through our courses, we teach you how to handle any situation. For example, would you know how to perform CPR in a Dragon Boat or outrigger? Or would you know how to provide care to an injured member of your sports team? After taking our Primary or Secondary care courses you’ll know how. Emergency situation training is only good if you can use it in any scenario. With the help of our trained professionals, you’ll learn the ins and outs of what to do when disaster strikes.
