Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. At DiveMania, talk to the instructors, we still describe it as that, but not only that, we describe it as one of the most fun courses you will do, and it is certainly one of the most fun to teach. Whilst the course is serious, it still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
During the course 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. You learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature.
What will you learn?
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:
Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
Emergency management and equipment
Rescuing panicked divers
Rescuing unresponsive divers
