PADI Rescue Diver Course

PADI Rescue Diver Course

Often cited as the most challenging and rewarding course, the rescue diver course will build your skills and confidence when planning, rescuing other divers in difficulty and self rescue. During the extensive theory portion of the course you will learn about treatment of diving injuries and the equipment used, recognising issues and relevant, possibly life saving, rescue techniques. You will start the in-water portion of the course with self rescue techniques, moving on to recognising issues with other divers and taking appropriate action. Later on you will complete more complex exercises, such as rescuing unconscious divers and getting them out of the water safely. Finally all of these skills will be assessed in 2 final scenarios, tying all of the skills you have learned together in a realistic simulation. Includes: Course tuition, online manual, certification, tanks and weights. Does not include: Equipment (full equipment available at €20 per day).
