The PADI Rescue diver course takes you through a wide range of different problems which can arise in the water ranging from the minor to the extreme. You’ll begin with learning how to recognise diver stress – before and during the dive. You will learn about some basic self-rescue skills which will help you to avoid being the centre of a rescue operation yourself, before going on to learn about handling diver emergencies.
What do you do when your buddy starts panicking? What do you do if you see someone struggling to stay afloat in the water? What should you do if you come across an unresponsive diver underwater? The Rescue Diver course will train recognise the early warning signs of a potential emergency situation, and how to handle those which you are not able to prevent.
