Learn to look after yourself and others and become a valuable part of the team by becoming a PADI Rescue Diver.

The next step in your diving once you are confident with your own skills, is how to look out for others on a dive. By far the most fun course — made even more fun with the help from the DMs as acting victims and difficult divers – you will really get the most of this course.

We love teaching it – the DMs love acting it and we know you will love learning it.

The PADI Rescue Diver course will build upon what you already know about how to prevent problems and what you should do as a rescue diver if they occur. You will learn the skills for:

  • Self-Rescue
  • Recognising and Managing Stress in other divers
  • Emergency Management and Equipment
  • Rescuing Panicked Divers
  • Rescuing Unresponsive Divers

The Rescue Diver before certified must have a valid and up to date First Aid Qualification. We teach the Emergency First Responder course which is affiliated with the PADI Rescue Diver course. You must be a certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver before taking this course.
