The PADI Rescue Diver Course allows you to combine new challenges with automatic gratification and reward. Throughout this course you will expand your diving knowledge and experience by learning how to focus on other persons rather than being self- or task oriented.
It is a fun but intense course (3-4 days) as you learn in detail how to prevent and manage problems in the water, knowing that you can help others if needed. The goal is to prepare you for potential hazardous scenarios by becoming confident to deal with certain diving emergencies.
During the course you will go through different diving accidents or stressful scenarios, how to avoid and prevent most of the diving related problems, coordinate and deal i.e with first aid, divers stress, panic, artificial respiration and even exit techniques.
Similar as in your PADI Open Water Certification the structure of the course includes working on theory, knowledge reviews and a final examination.
Divers often describe the PADI Rescue Diver Course as the most rewarding course on the PADI System.
