PADI Rescue Diver
How do you take a subject like accident prevention and management and turn it into fun? Call it the PADI Rescue Diver Course. Unlike a lot of other schools, we run this course over two full days to maximise your knowledge and give lots of opportunity to hone the skills you have learnt.
The PADI Rescue Diver Course develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid. The program is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver. PADI Rescue Diver (or equivalent) certification is also a prerequisite for all PADI leadership courses.
To get into the PADI Rescue Diver program, you’ll need to be certified as a PADI Advanced Diver (or equivalent) and must be at least 15 years old. The PADI Junior Rescue Diver Course is available if you’re between the ages of 12 and 14 and hold a PADI Junior Advanced Open Water Diver rating.
You’ll also need to have successfully completed the PADI Emergency First Response Course (which you can do with us) or a sanctioned program in CPR within the past three years.
The PADI Rescue Diver Course covers: -
- Self-Rescue and Diver Stress
- Diving First Aid
- Emergency Management and Equipment Considerations
- Swimming and Non-Swimming Assists
- Panicked Diver Response
- Underwater Problems
- Missing Diver Procedures
- Surfacing Unconscious Diver
- In-Water Artificial Respiration
- Egress (exit) Methods
- First Aid Procedures for Pressure Related Accidents
- Dive Accident Scenarios
All of these topics are covered in the PADI Rescue Diver Manual which is included in the course fee. After successfully completing the course, you’ll receive the internationally recognised PADI Rescue Diver certification card.
The Rescue Course is £250. Emergency First Response is £125.
