Who should take this course?

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 to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is fun, serious but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

Description

What will 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

What scuba gear will you use?

You’ll use your basic scuba equipment and will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation. During exercises you’ll work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and perhaps CPR mannequins. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit which will be useful throughout your diving career.
