Learn to prevent and manage emergencies while diving
Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver Course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because 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 how to become a better buddy by practicing problem-solving skills until they become second nature.
This course introduces you to new dive theory, and new skills, practicing in shallow water, before venturing into open water to react to scenarios covering all you have learnt.
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.
- Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
- Emergency management and equipment
- Rescuing panicked divers
- Rescuing unresponsive divers
The course takes three days to complete.
