PADI Rescue Diver Course

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver program as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? You learn to anticipate and manage problems in the water. You become more confident in your skills as a diver by knowing that you can help others if required. During the education, you learn to become a better buddy by practising problem-solving skills until they become second nature.

PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers that are at least 12 years old and have achieved the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enrol in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this practice during the Rescue Diver course. Your instructor may also offer the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider speciality diver course at the same time.
