Phuket Rescue Diver Course

The PADI Rescue Diver course is an important and crucial step in expanding a diver`s knowledge and experience beyond a purely recreational level. Now you start to think about other divers and not just yourself! The PADI Rescue Diver rating is a vital stepping stone to all PADI leadership training (Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Open Water Scuba Instructor).

This course will expand your diving knowledge and experience level, and although it’s serious, you’ll find the Rescue Course an enjoyable way to build your confidence. If you have not completed a First Aid / CPR training in the previous 24 months, the 1 day EFR (Emergency First Response) course is required before completing the Rescue Diver course.
