PADI Rescue Diver Course
Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. You learn to become a better buddy during the course by practicing problem-solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious but still allows for lots of laughter between the focused learning.
What You Will Learn
The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using various techniques. Through knowledge development during your e-Learning and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills.

Emergency management and equipment
