Rescue Diver

PADI Rescue Diver Course

Be prepared for a diver emergency!

The Rescue Diver Course is a fun & challenging course we recommend to all divers. By becoming aware of the potential causes of accidents you are more likely to avoid getting into trouble. In the unlikely event of yourself, your buddy or a fellow diver getting into trouble you will have the knowledge & skills to assist safely & effectively to perform a rescue.

Knowledge Development
After completing your online rescue diver theory we will work to prepare an Emergency Action Plan for a local dive site and learn how to set up the Oxygen system.

Training Exercises
After reviewing your own self rescue skills we will learn how to help our buddy. There is no right way to 'rescue' someone so we will cover a variety of techniques and you can choose which ones work best for you in any given situation.

Rescue Scenarios
Designed to challenge divers and present realistic situations that may be encountered at local dive sites. It gives you the opportunity to experience a variety of environmental conditions and logistical challenges.
