Rescue Diver Course

Duration two days

With the PADI Rescue Diver Course you learn how to take care of others not just yourself. Your instructor will equip you with the necessary skills to come to the aid of divers who need assistance. It is one of the most challenging yet rewarding courses and it includes three Open Water Dives.

Rescue Diver training will teach you how to prevent problems and how to manage dive emergencies if they occur. It is a very useful course to take and is a prerequisite for the Professional PADI courses such as Divemaster.
