PADI Rescue Diver

The PADI Rescue Diver course develops your diving knowledge and skills to enable you to effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and administer first aid in a diving accident situation.

The programme is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver and is a hugely rewarding three day programme.

Course Structure

During days 1 and 2 you will cover knowledge development and confined water exercises. The third day is conducted in open water, where you combine all the skills and knowledge gained into a number of simulated dive accident scenarios.
