Challenging and rewarding best describes the PADI Rescue Diver course. This course will expand your knowledge and experience level. Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well being of other divers. Although this course is challenging, it is a rewarding way to build your confidence. Rescue Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies. Many divers say this is the best course they’ve ever taken. You’ll cover:

  • Self-rescue and diver stress
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Panicked diver response
  • In-water rescue breathing protocols
  • Egress (exits)
  • Dive accident scenarios
  • Minimum Age: 15 years old (12 for PADI Junior Rescue Diver)

You will also need an Oxygen Provider course and the successful completion of a sanctioned CPR program within the last 24 months.

Pre-requisites: Current CPR/First Aid from valid certifying agency or EFR course (see below) + PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course. Both are offered through the shop on a regular basis.

Cost: $249 course + Rescue Diver Crew Pack (+ EFR & O2 Provider course if required).
