The Most Challenging, Most Rewarding Course Offered
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 is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
The course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies using a variety of techniques. 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.
