“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.
One of the pre-requisites for the PADI Rescue Corse is to be trained for first aid and CPR within the previous two years. If you do not have this then we can provide the Emergency First Response Course course over 1-day course before you start your PADI Rescue Diver Course with us.
Emergency First Response is one of the foremost international CPR and first aid training companies in the world, and its Emergency First Response course gives you the confidence to respond to medical emergencies — not just in the diving world, but in your every day world with your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers too.
The MSD rating is the highest PADI non-professional rating for scuba divers. For those who want to go into the dive business to work then the divemaster course should be the first level to aim for. However, for those who just want to have fun and want to extend their knowledge and experience in their hobby, then the MSD is the level to aim for.
