Product Description


PADI Rescue Diver course, which teaches divers not only how to help themselves should they come into difficulties, but also how to help others. This course has considerable value on several levels- from building upon the general dive skills learned in earlier courses; to increasing a diver’s awareness of the marine environment; to teaching vitally important rescue skills that could one day mean the difference between life and death. Enrolling on the Rescue course is a good idea for any conscientious diver- especially those that frequently dive with family or friends, and want the peace of mind that comes from knowing what they would do in a diving emergency. It’s also a compulsory step on the road to becoming a professional diver, and therefore essential for all those thinking of going on to become a divemaster or instructor. Although the content of the Rescue Diver course is often serious, those that choose to pursue this qualification will find that doing so is also great fun. The course involves role-play scenarios, independent thinking and good teamwork skills.

The PADI Rescue Course will teach you to effectively  prevent problem situations and to deal with diving emergencies. This is arguably one of PADI’s best courses for increasing a diver’s self confidence.

To be certified as a Rescue Diver, participants must have completed a sanctioned course in CPR within the past 2 years. Introduced in 2003. For those that need it, we also offer a Emergency First Response (EFR) Course, which includes both a primary care component (CPR) and secondary care (First Aid).
