Rescue Diver

Who should take this course?

During the Rescue Diver course you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. You will also learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

PADI Advanced Open Water Divers who have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course (must be at least 12 years old). You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course.
