/// Rescue Diver Course


“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. The course develops your knowledge and skills so that you will become a complete diver – someone who can look after themselves as well as others in the water by effectively performing diver assists and rescues, managing diving accident situations and giving first aid. The course is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver, and we think that every diver should get to the level of Rescue Diver as it makes you completely self-sufficient in terms of rescuing yourself and others. PADI Rescue Diver (or equivalent) certification is also a prerequisite for all PADI Divemaster and Instructor programs.


/// What You Will Learn:

• Self rescue
• Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
• Emergency management and equipment
• Rescuing panicked divers
• Rescuing unresponsive divers

The theory part of the course is covered by the course manual and video, and the practical part of the course consists of 10 Rescue Skills and 2 Rescue Scenarios. The PADI Rescue Diver course can be done as a 4/5 day course, and we normally include a couple of fun dives for free as part of the course. You can also take the Rescue Diver course with the eLearning option, in this case the course will only take 2 days.
