• PADI Rescue Diver

     

    The PADI Rescue Diver course is the beginning of an experience beyond recreational diving. Rescue divers are taught how to deal with and manage diver emergencies, using a whole variety of rescue techniques. It also heightens your own safety awareness, as of course other divers. It gives you an awareness to help prevent and foresee diving problems. The course takes 2 days and consists of some classroom work and many realistic open water training scenarios and an exam.
