Are you ready for a different kind of diving challenge? In the Rescue Diver course, you’ll embark on a whole new level of scuba training.
The course is designed to give you the knowledge and skills to become a diver who’s prepared to deal with diver stress management, out of air emergencies, unconscious and panicked diver rescues, as well as how to use specialized first aid equipment.
You’ll learn and practice a variety of rescue techniques including dealing with a search patterns, surf rescues and procedures for coming to the aid of unconscious divers on the surface and at depth and how to administer rescue breaths in water. The skills give you the ability to keep a cool head when the adrenaline spikes in the heat of the moment and you’ll learn how to keep a small problem from becoming big trouble.
Scuba enjoys an excellent safety record in part because of the knowledge and skills taught in the Rescue Diver course. When you complete the course you’ll have the confidence that comes from knowing you can handle these situations. Rescue Diver is challenging and many divers say it’s among their most rewarding experiences. Knowledge, Skills, Equipment and Experience are the four pillars of being a comfortable and confident diver. As a Rescue Diver you’ll build on all four.
