“Challenging” “rewarding” PADI Rescue Diver

Learn how to turn yourself into the best buddy, The PADI Rescue Diver course teaches you to increase your safety, recognise problems before they occur



RescueMost divers cite this to be the best course they took. Whilst serious and testing, you will learn so much to improve your dive skills, and learn to look out for your fellow dive buddies.

We don’t like to think about it but accidents happen. Rescue training expands your knowledge of diving, increases your dive skills, and makes you more aware of what’s happening around you. The course helps you recognize and respond to potential diving emergencies in the unlikely event that they should occur, helping you prevent problems before they happen. A pre-requisite for the PADI Rescue course is a first aid certification, the EFR® Emergency First Response course is just the ticket.

During the course you will learn:

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

Rescue Diver certification is also an important prerequisite for the PADI Divemaster rating and the distinguished PADI Master Scuba Diver certification.
