Rescue diver course - 18th May 2024



The PADI Rescue Diver Course is  one of the most challenging, rewarding and fun dive courses you'll ever do. Emphasis is placed on prevention of diving problems and accidents, awareness, control and proper accident management, NOT physical ability, making it an incredibly valuable experience for all divers.

You will 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. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy 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 in between the focused learning.

The course is divided into three parts:

  1. Knowledge Development sessions where you will work closely with your instructor to cover – self rescue (because you can't help others if you yourself are in trouble), diver stress, first aid, accident management and dive equipment.
  2. Practical Session, you will learn different techniques for helping divers in trouble, from tired divers on the surface to unconscious divers underwater.
  3. Accident Scenarios, you will have the opportunity to put everything you have learned into practice, handling diving incidents as part of a team.

One thing is certain, after completing this course you will be a more confident, prepared and aware diver. Group sizes are always kept small and we guarantee lots of personal attention.

The minimum age is 12; you must be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or have another qualifying certification, and have atleast 20 dives logged.

The course takes 2 days to complete and is will take you one step closer to the PADI Master Scuba diver rating or Divemaster.

To be certified as a PADI Rescue Diver you must have successfully completed a sanctioned CPR course within the last 24 months, dont worry about that just yet, we can assist you in getting there.
