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 isn't just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

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, and rescuing unresponsive divers.

What extra will you need?

Some Rescue Diver courses are held in the open ocean, and will incur an extra fee for a boat charter. Other courses will take place in the local springs, and will only incur the entrance fee to the springs. Required dive gear will include your regulator, octopus, pressure gauge, BCD, mask and snorkel, fins, wetsuit, lights & glow sticks, (night, wreck, cavern), safety whistle, safety signal (boat dives), compass, tanks, and nitrox compatible dive computer. Provided materials include course books and rescue pocket mask as well as required rescue gear (O2 Kit, throw devices, etc).
