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.

The PADI RESCUE Diver course consists of learning the following:

Self rescue

Recognizing and managing stress in other divers

Emergency management and equipment

Rescuing panicked divers

Rescuing unresponsive divers


DAY 1: Rescue exercises

     - Tired diver

     - Panicked diver
     - Response from shore, boat or dock (responsive diver)
     - Distressed diver underwater
     - Missing diver
     - Surfacing the unresponsive diver
     - Unresponsive diver at the surface
     - Exiting the unresponsive diver
     - First aid for pressure-related injuries & oxygen administration
     - Response from shore/boat to unresponsive diver at the surface
