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. The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning. In order to take this course, you have to be a certified Advanced Open Water diver and have completed the EFR course at least 2 years before.
What you will learn:
- During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature.
- You learn what to look for and how to respond.
- Self rescue.
- Recognizing and managing stress in other divers.
- Emergency management and equipment.
- Rescuing panicked divers.
- Rescuing unresponsive divers.
