COURSE DETAILS:

The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with minor and major dive emergencies using various techniques.

Knowledge development and rescue exercises teach you what to look for and how to respond.

Confined and open water sections deal with self-rescue, 10 rescue exercises, and two final scenarios.

During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Some topics covered in the PADI Rescue Diver course include self-rescue, identifying and managing stress in other divers, emergency management and equipment, rescuing panicked divers, and rescuing unresponsive divers. 

It's worth noting that you may be eligible to receive college credit for completing this course. Additionally, you must have completed EFR® Primary and Secondary Care training within 24 months of enrolling in the rescue diver course. Fortunately, you can complete this training concurrently with the rescue diver course. 

Enrolling in both the Rescue and the EFR course (Emergency First Response) comes with a free Care for Children upgrade ($55USD value) included in the costs. 

Lastly, you must complete an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) before certification. This plan outlines how to safely seek help in the diving environment where you'll be operating.
