Emergency First Response

Our Emergency First Response programs are built on the protocols set forth by the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR). ILCOR is an international standards group that represents most of the world’s major resuscitation organisations. Our programs follow the same exact patient care guidelines used by medical professionals but translated for the everyday rescuer to understand.


Ideally, you will be coming from a medical background as either a paramedic, EMT, nurse, physiotherapist or doctor with a desire to teach lifesaving skills, certify professional teams and be part of a delivery team. In addition, you would be looking for an additional income stream and flexible working arrangements.

Successful candidates will experience the course first-hand and will then be formally trained (certified by EFR) on an instructor course covering the specific goals and performance requirements for the Primary Care, Secondary Care, Care for Children, CPR & AED, Airborne Pathogens and ALS courses, reinforcing their knowledge of the mechanics of injury, working on improvisation in rescue along with instruction on how to structure, teach and deliver the courses to adults, youths and children ensuring the attendees gain the confidence and skills needed to make a difference.

T8 First Response is an Emergency First Response (EFR Australia) registered training centre in Hong Kong.
