Rescue Diver

People who have completed the PADI Rescue Diver course will tell you it’s the best course that they have done, and they have really earned that certification by the time they qualify. Challenging and rewarding best describes the course.

Learning to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well-being of other divers is rewarding in itself. Rescue diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and if necessary manage emergencies, and it’s a great way to build your confidence.

You’ll learn topics such as self-rescue and diver stress, emergency management and equipment, panicked diver responses, in water rescue breathing protocols, removing an injured diver from the water and then how to put it all into practice in some diving accident scenarios.

We always recommend that you have invested in your own scuba equipment, which is familiar to you. You are however welcome to use ours if required.
