PADI Rescue Diver BOOK NOW!
See beyond your own personal safety with the PADI Rescue Course!
The PADI Rescue Diver course is a pivotal step in dive education and skill development. The PADI Rescue Diver course teaches how to look beyond yourself and consider the safety of other divers. The course is both physically and mentally demanding.
Because a large part of the content requires the students to have some primary and secondary first aid ability, you will need to have this previously completed, or complete the PADI Emergency First Response course. The Rescue Diver course is split over four days and is divided into three distinct and challenging sections: Knowledge development, skill development and open water scenarios.
Knowledge Development is crucial theory work, ensuring that the student understands all that is required and expected of a Rescue Diver. This covers topics such as self-rescue, panicked diver, unconscious divers, Decompression Illness and oxygen usage to mention just a few.
Skill Development is normally a two day event as there are many skills to learn and develop to a very high standard. Here at the Bay Islands College of Diving we would normally conduct the skills primarily in the on-site pool or our pier, allowing lots of time to practice each of the techniques. The second day you will be taken in to open water to repeat and learn some more exercises.
Open Water scenarios are to demonstrate mastery of a complete rescue, through to oxygen administration. We normally include two dives just to enhance the experience on the boat.
Includes all reef fees, course materials, air tanks and equipment rental.
