RESCUE DIVER

Rescue Diver

The PADI Rescue Diver course will change the way you dive – in the best possible way. Learn to identify and fix minor issues before they become big problems, gain a lot of confidence and have serious fun along the way.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

The Rescue Diver Course is designed to develop the necessary knowledge and skills for individuals to perform diver rescues and assists, manage diving accident situations, render proper first aid and qualify for Divemaster training. Rescue Diver training is an important step in expanding a diver’s knowledge beyond a purely recreational level. During the rescue scenarios you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Working on topics that include among other things: 

  • Self rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress with other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Searching for lost diver
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers

Furthermore, we will work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and CPR mannequins. Your PADI instructor will explain the equipment and how to use it and suggest some personal gear of your own that may be useful on your own dives. 

 

You can optionally take the Emergency O2 provider class with this class as it can easily be added to the curriculum. Ask us for more details.
