Rescue Diver

Why Rescue Diver?


The PADI Rescue Diver program develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid. The program is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver. PADI Rescue Diver certification is also a prerequisite for all PADI leadership programs.


What will I do?

During the Rescue Diver course you will learn about how to handle emergencies that may occur on the surface or underwater. These emergencies range from a simple injury to serious life-threatening situations. You will then learn and extensively practice several skills in the pool prior to demonstrating them in open water.



What are the prerequisites?

You can enroll in the Rescue Diver Course as a certified Open Water Diver (or have a qualifying certification from another training organization) and participate in the Rescue Diver knowledge development and rescue training sessions, in confined water only, while working on your Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
