What’s Involved?

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, tired and panicked divers, unconscious divers, Decompression Illness and oxygen usage to mention just a few.

Skill Development is normally a full 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 off our pier, allowing lots of time to practice each of the techniques. The second day you will be taken in to open water to apply the skills you’ve developed in a more challenging environment

Open Water Scenarios are to demonstrate mastery of a complete rescue encompassing search of a missing diver, exiting the diver and administering oxygen and CPR to an unresponsive patient.

What Do I Need To Start?

Because a large part of the content requires students to have some primary and secondary first aid ability, you will need to have First Aid and CPR training. You can complete this through the PADI EFR Course with us or with an equivalent to EFR from another training organization, provided it included First Aid and CPR application within the last two years. (Please have proof of this!)
