Rescue Diver

The PADI Rescue Diver Course

will expand your knowledge and experience beyond purely recreational level because you'll learn to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well being of other divers. Although this course is serious, it is an enjoyable way to build your confidence.

"Diver, Diver…. Are you ok??! How would you react to a diving emergency? Can you assist your buddy until help arrives? Do you know how to prevent diving accidents before they happen?

These are hard questions that every responsible diver should ask himself or herself. Despite the best Open Water training and most careful dive planning, accidents can occur. There is probably no worse feeling than being helpless in such a situation. We can prepare you to be ready to prevent accidents and emergencies and to minimise problems should the unexpected occur. The PADI Rescue Certification also prepares you to begin your progression toward the Divemaster rating, which is the first step towards becoming a professional PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. Upon successful completion of this program, you will have experienced the use of various rescue equipment, completed drills on panicky and unconscious divers, performed searches for lost divers and practiced artificial respiration on the surface with an unconscious diver. You will have the confidence in using your equipment and your skills under different circumstances and under stress.
What will I do?
Rescue Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies. During the five open water sessions, you'll cover:
• Self-rescue and diver stress
• dive first aid
• emergency management and equipment
• swimming and non-swimming assists
• panicked diver response
• underwater problems
• missing diver procedures
• surfacing the unconscious diver
• in water artificial respiration
• egress (exits)
• first aid procedures for pressure related accidents
• dive accident scenarios

Whilst this course does not make a diver into a professional it is the first step on the rung. Skills learned here will be tested many more times on almost every course after this point. It also displays a level of experience that is well regarded at any dive centre you may dive with
