What to Expect?
The Rescue Diver training covers and repeats the prevention of simple problems and all emergency procedures that you have been taught since your PADI Open Water course. The Rescue course will also teach you how to react efficiently to help a distressed and/or panicked scuba diver on the surface.
At Rescue Diver level, you will also be ready to learn how to manage more complex diving emergencies, and how to apply these skills efficiently, in order to help others in case they find themselves in an emergency situation. The rescue course is a bit of work, as the content and context are made as realistic as possible. The nature of such training and the outcome in which it can be used are very serious, but we teach it in a way that the course remains fun and enjoyable.
The Rescue Diver course is perfect for scuba divers who want to improve their self confidence underwater and on the surface. The PADI Rescue Diver training is also the last step before going into a professional level of scuba diving. These courses are further explained in the Divemaster and the PADI Scuba Diving Instructor (OWSI) sections.
