PADI Rescue Diver Course

“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.

Our Rescue Diver course provides the Advanced Open Water Diver with the opportunity to become a safer, more skilled and confident diver. This course prepares you to help prevent and manage minor or major dive emergencies with a variety of techniques. Rescue training is both challenging and rewarding. The program includes knowledge development, pool and open water training. In addition to fulfilling the Rescue Course requirements, to be certified as a Rescue Diver, the student is successfully to have completed a sanctioned course in CPR within the past 2 years.
