PADI Rescue Diver

Who should take this course?

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? You will learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver. After taking the PADI Rescue Diver Course from Dive World, you can go scuba diving with the confidence knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature.

Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

PADI (Junior) Advanced Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course.

What will you learn?

The PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

1. Knowledge Development (Theory Component)

Learn in a classroom or online to understand the principles of rescuing yourself or your buddy.

2. Confined Water Training (Pool Training)

Practice the rescue skills in confined water to develop proficiency in rescue techniques.

3. Rescue Scenarios

Put your new skills to use in improvised open water rescue scenerios!
