The Recreational Gold Course (RGC) is designed for Open Water students who wish to develop their diving skills without taking the professional route. This program includes:
To be certified as a Rescue Diver, participants must have completed a sanctioned course in CPR within the past 2 years. Emergency First Response (EFR), includes both a primary care component (CPR) and secondary care (First Aid).
The 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.
The course includes two evening class and pool sessions, and one day of ocean diving.
