Rescue Diver Course

The PADI Rescue Diver Course was constructed to develop your personal dive safety and confidence while also developing your ability to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well-being of other divers. The Rescue Diver Course teaches skills such as self rescue, panicked diver management, and emergency management and equipment use. These skills are taught via classroom, in-water skill development and then combining the skills using dive accident scenarios. Most divers look back on their diving courses and feel that the Rescue Diver Course was one of the most challenging, exhilarating, and rewarding courses they have ever taken.
