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 practising 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.
PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enrol in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have First Aid (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months which could be the Emergency First Response Course. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course.
The Standard course includes training materials and certification – gear hire is separate.
The Deluxe course includes training materials and certification. Also included is the Emergency First Response Course
