Often described as the “most fun I’ve had being serious” this PADI program develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render the appropriate First Aid.

The program is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver.

The course consists of 10 exercises in Open Water that culminates in 4 Rescue Scenarios combining the various exercises into realistic rescue scenarios.

These are usually run over two days following a day of Knowledge Development and Pool work.

Exercises include: panicked diver on the surface, tired diver on the surface, distressed diver underwater, missing diver, surfacing the unconscious diver, egress with the unconscious diver etc.

Prior to certification you will also need to have successfully completed the Emergency First Response Primary / Secondary Care course or a sanctioned program in CPR and First Aid within the past two years.

PADI Rescue Diver certification is also a prerequisite for all PADI leadership programs.
