PADI Rescue Course

Everyone I have spoken to says the PADI Rescue Diver was the most challenging and rewarding course they ever took. I signed up for class and took the most important course on the PADI ladder.

Being able to react in a useful way when something goes wrong is very important - especially for divers. The inherit dangers of being in or under water makes rescue and first aid extra important.

PADI Rescue Diver and the accompanying Emergency First Response is probably the most important courses a diver can take after completing his or her Open Water and Advanced certificates.

Most dives go according to plan and without hitches. But do you know what to do if something goes wrong?

Despite the seriousness of the subject matter, the rescue course is also a lot of fun. But most importantly it leaves you with the confidence to handle a diving emergency.

The rescue course teaches you to organize a search, how to rescue a panicked or unresponsive diver and how to recognize and manage stress in divers.

The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken", PADI writes on their website.

Knowing who to call is an important thing in an emergency. Taking the PADI Rescue Divers course you will learn about emergency plans and more.

Participants also learn CPR and first aid, how to use a defibrillator and how to take care of a sick or injured person - very useful skills even in your every day world.
