PADI Rescue Diver
The rescue diver course provides you with excellent skills to rescue not only yourself but also another diver. At the end of this course, you will be able to competently rescue a drowning or unconscious diver, administer CPR, understand accident prevention, manage an accident site and rescue, administer basic first aid and know more than you ever thought possible about diving and rescue equipment!
It is also one of the most enjoyable courses with divers working as a team covering a variety of scenarios. It is amazing how much information you absorb whilst laughing!
After completing the rescue course, divers say they feel more confident about their ability to rescue themselves and other divers in trouble.
