Rescue Diver

Rescue Diver PADI course is an essential step in expanding a diver’s knowledge and experience.
Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves to consider the safety and well-being of other divers This is why Rescue Diver PADIcertification is a prerequisite for all professional level PADI training (PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor and Open Water Scuba Instructor)..

In this course you will learn in a fun way to solve and anticipate complicated situations that may happen during your dives or those of your companions.

Learn how to help divers in trouble, recognize stress before it even happens, resolve complications and avoid risky situations, and in case they do occur (we all hope not), rescue a diver who has had an accident.

The course consists of two parts, a theoretical and a practical.

  • In the theoretical part, you will study the theoretical concepts and situations of accidents, how to avoid them and how to solve them if they occur.
  • n the practical part, we will perform exercises such as finding a missing diver, bringing him to the surface, assisted breathing and rescue techniques. You will learn and demonstrate your ability to control the circle of care until medical services arrive.

How long do I need?

The time required is similar to that of the Open Water Diver. The theoretical part is done online and the practical part lasts 2/3 days.
