The 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).
Sometimes this 3 day course can be hard work (some instructors joke that if you don’t hate them, they’re not teaching you properly!), but you’ll find it rewarding and lots of fun. 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 do not completed ant First Aid / CPR training in the previous 24 months, the 1 day EFR (Emergency First Response) course is required before starting the Rescue Diver course.
