Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you 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 PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:
· Self rescue
· Recognising and managing stress in other divers
· Emergency management and equipment
· Rescuing panicked divers
· Rescuing unresponsive diver
At Aquanaut we run this course over 2 days, in addition to the Emergency First Response course, which is a prerequisite for the Rescue Diver Course.
It is important that you are confident with these potentially life saving skills, we therefore practice a lot of the skills in the pool or shallow water, trying out different techniques, before moving to Open Water.
