Rescue Diver

Rewarding and fun – that 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 serious, it is an enjoyable way to build your confidence. Rescue Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies. During the 5 confined (pool) sessions, you’ll cover:

  • Self-rescue and diver stress
  • AED and emergency oxygen delivery systems
  • Dive first aid
  • Swimming and non-swimming rescue techniques
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Panicked diver response
  • Underwater problems
  • Missing diver procedures
  • Surfacing the unconscious diver
  • In-water rescue breathing protocols
  • Egress (exits)
  • First aid procedures for pressure related accidents
  • Dive accident scenarios

To certify you as a PADI Rescue Diver you will then participate in a open water rescue scenario over 1 day, typically held at Stoney Cove or any other suitable open water in the UK or OS. You will also need to successfully complete a sanctioned First Aid program within the last 24 months. The Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) courses meet these requirements. We run the Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) courses on demand over 2 evenings from 6-9pm or 1 day fro 10-4pm.So, if you are a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another training organization and are over 15 years of age (12 for PADI Junior Rescue) what are you waiting for!
