RESCUE DIVER Prevent problems, and manage them if they occur.

"Challenging" and "rewarding" best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you've already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.

 

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it's the best course they've ever taken.

What You Learn

  • Self rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all your basic scuba gear including a dive computer and accessories.

The Learning Materials You Need

The PADI Rescue Diver crewpak includes all materials required to complete the PADI Rescue Diver course – including a pocket mask. You'll learn how to think like a rescue diver and preview skills you'll practice with your PADI Instructor. Once your Rescue Diver course is complete, you can review the DVD to refresh your dive safety skills as needed. This tool box of knowledge and technique will give you the expertise to handle almost any emergency situation.

If you can't attend the theory class(es) of the course, you can enroll on the Online Rescue Diver Self-Study Course which covers the theory component of the course.

Prerequisites

To enroll in the PADI Rescue Diver course, you must be:

  • 12 years or older
  • Have a PADI Adventure Diver certification (or have a qualifying certification from another organisation)
  • Be trained and current for first aid and CPR within the previous two years. The Emergency First Response course meets this requirement.

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact SCUBAVERSITY.

Your Next Adventure

After completing CPR and first aid and the PADI Rescue Diver course, you should take the PADI Divemaster course which is  the first professional rating in the diving career. Together, these three courses round out your ability to lead dives and to handle scuba diver emergencies.
