Rescue Diver

“Challenging and rewarding” best describes the PADI Rescue Diver Course. The Rescue Diver Course expands your knowledge and experience level and teaches you to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well being of other divers.

Although the course is challenging, it offers      a rewarding way to build your confidence by teaching you how to prevent problems and if necessary, manage dive emergencies using a variety of techniques.

The knowledge development portion covers a broad range of topics:

  • Self-rescue and diver stress
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Panicked diver response
  • In-water breathing protocols
  • Dive accident scenarios
  • Diving first aid
  • Accident management
  • Self-rescue
