The PADI Rescue Diver program makes the serious subject of accident prevention and management enjoyable and rewarding. Until now, the emphasis of your training has been you and your dive buddy, but this program teaches you to make diving more safe and enjoyable for yourself and others.
During the PADI Rescue Diver course, you’ll learn how to foresee, prevent and manage potential diving accidents. This may include anything from assisting a tired diver to handling a possible emergency. Throughout the course, you’ll practice applying the knowledge and skills that can make the difference in the unlikely event problems do arise.
This is a great course to be involved with as a student or as one of the teaching staff; it is the most rewarding of all the non- professional courses Scuba in the Weald run.
The course is made up of Independent study, 1/2 Day Academics in the classroom and 2 Days Open Water Training.
How can I continue my adventure?
Once you have completed your PADI Rescue Diver Course, you can aim towards PADI Master Scuba Diver which is the highest non- professional level. (5 Specialties, Current Emergency First Response First aid/CPR training, and PADI Rescue Diver) allows you to achieve this special rating.
You could also begin a PADI Divemaster Course the first step on the Professional ladder.
To compliment your Rescue Course you could book on to one of our PADI Oxygen First Aid Courses and become a PADI Oxygen Provider.
