PADI Rescue Diver



Why PADI Rescue Diver?


The rescue Diver Course develops your knowledge and skills to be able to assist other divers in trouble, manage diving accident situations and perform diving first aid. A combination of classroom, confined and open water sessions which will teach you the theory and practical knowledge necessary to deal with any diving emergency both above and under water.

Focusing on prevention, response and correct accident management, this course widens your scope making you a more safe and valuable diving companion. Rescue Diver is also a necessary step towards PADI professional status.


What do I need to start?


  • To participate in the rescue training sessions in open water, and to participate in the open water rescue scenarios, you must be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another training organization.
  • Minimum age: 15 years old (12 for PADI Junior Rescue Diver)

What if I do not have a CPR certification in the past 24 months?

The next  Rescue Class will be in October 2012.  Please call the store for additional information.
