The Padi Rescue Diver Course will build your confidence as a diver, teach you how to ensure your own safety and broaden your horizon to also consider the safety and well being of others both on the surface and underwater while diving.

Think about it - if there was an incident or an emergency situation with you, your buddy or your group would you want to be able to deal with it in a proper and successful manner ? Do you feel you could deal with and assist a diver who goes into a panic – either on the surface or underwater ?

If you want to grow your confidence and learn how to deal with these situations and more then complete the Rescue Diver Course and become an elite Rescue Diver !
Your course should be enjoyable but challenging, you will build your knowledge, confidence and skills through learning how to look after your own and other divers safety while developing a greater awareness of what is happening around you.

The course consists of a knowledge development session going over what you will have previously studied and then completing the final exam on the same content. There is a manual to complete which can be completed either with a paperback version or online with eLearning, we can send you either option so this can be completed at home saving valuable holiday time.

This is then followed with a number of dive emergency practice sessions in confined water both at the surface and underwater. These include resuscitation, lifting unconscious divers, dealing with panicking divers, tows, self rescue and searches. These are completed to a high standard so you are fully ready and prepared to perform in some simulated rescue situations either as the lead rescuer or as an assistant within your group of students.

Once these are completed there are then 2 simulated dive emergencies for you to deal with in Open Water.
On successful completion of these you will be certified as a Rescue Diver.

The Rescue Diver Course is a must for any experienced diver or any diver looking to develop their skills and feel more confident in the water.
