The PADI Rescue Diver Course is an absolute must to make you the most reliable and safe diver, buddy and surface support you could possibly be.
Rescue Diver training is SERIOUS FUN but it is also hard work. Everybody who takes the programme comments how challenging and thoroughly rewarding it is.
We teach you everything you need to know – but hope that you’ll never need to use it…
The course focuses on problem recognition and prevention, as well as handling the worst possible scenarios that can happen in a diving environment.
During the PADI Rescue Diver course you will work with a senior instructor in the classroom from 10am-3pm. We then move the course to the pool from 4-7pm where we will cover skill development. We then spend a day at the lakes putting it all into practise through training scenarios which are challenging and FUN!
Over two Sundays you build the skills and confidence to handle diving emergencies such as those detailed below:
- Tired diver at the surface
- Diver panic at the surface
- Distressed diver under water
- Emergency management
- Missing diver searches
- Response from boat/shore
- Surfacing the unconscious diver
- In water artificial ventilation
- Exiting the unconscious diver
- First Aid for pressure-related injuries
These training sessions give you the opportunity to put your new skills into practice through realistic training emergency scenarios. Through them you will receive feedback on your performance and have a lot of fun too!
Knowledge development is through a combination of self-study, training videos and instructor presentations. There is a multi-choice exam to assess your understanding.
An excellent course for anybody who dives regularly – and a must if you plan to dive without professional supervision.
Many people consider that training for recreational diving is not complete without passing the PADI Rescue Diver course.
