Who is this course for
Scuba divers describe PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most gratifying course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to anticipate and manage problems in the water and become more self-sufficient in your abilities as a diver, knowing that you can assist others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem-solving techniques until they become second nature. Plus, the training is not just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused training.
Junior PADI Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have finished the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may register in a Rescue Diver course. You also require having Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) practice within the past 24 months. You can complete this exercise during the Rescue Diver course. Your instructor can also offer the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider Specialty Diver class at the same time.
