Rescue Diver course

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, 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.

Why is it fun

The course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning. The fun part about this course is that you take on challenges and get the hang of it. Most divers find this course challenging but definitely worth it. When finished, most of them say that it is the best course they have ever done.

What you will learn

  • Self-reliance
  • Recognize stress in other divers and dealing with it
  • Dealing with an emergency and emergency equipment
  • How to rescue a Diver in panic
  • Rescue unconscious divers
      The Scuba Gear you use

      You use all the basic scuba gear including a dive computer and some accessories.

      Ask the Begur Dive team what equipment you will use during the course.

      The learning materials you need

      The PADI Rescue Diver Kit includes all the materials needed to complete the PADI Rescue Diver course - including a pocket mask. You learn to think as a rescue diver and you look at the skills you'll practice with your PADI Instructor. If your Rescue Diver course is completed, you can watch the DVD again to refresh your dive safety skills when needed. This toolbox with knowledge and techniques will give you the knowledge to deal with almost any emergency.

      Who should take this course

      To enrol in the Rescue Diver-course you:
      • 12 years or older
      • Must be a PADI Adventure Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization)
      • Must have been trained in first aid and CPR within two years previous to the course or have a valid certificate (Ask your instructor for CPR and Emergency First Response first aid courses)
        Your Next Adventure

        If you've done the training in CPR and first aid and the PADI Rescue Diver course, you would actually have to follow the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course. If you've done all three of these courses, you are perfectly able to act correctly when a diving emergency occurs.
