Rescue Diver
Certification 12 Yrs+

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken.

Course content

You learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

What you learn

The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:

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

Schedule

The RESCUE DIVER course can be completed in a minimum of 4 days. If you should be short of time we recommend you to participate the PADI eLearning programme. Whit this you acquire the theory with PADI learning texts and videos on your Computer or Tablet and can start to dive right away when you arrive. Please schedule a minimum of 4 - 5 days for your RESCUE DIVER course in any case, because we cannot start a course with single persons every day.
