  • Diving first aid
  • Swimming and non-swimming assists
  • Egress (exits)
  • Surfacing the unconscious diver
  • Underwater problems
  • Missing diver procedures
  • Panicked diver response
  • In-water artificial respiration
  • Dive accident scenarios
  • First aid procedures for pressure related accidents
  • Emergency management and equipment considerations

To get into the rescue programme, you'll need to be certified as an Advanced Open Water Diver. You'll also need to have successfully completed the PADI Emergency First Response ® programme or a sanctioned programme in CPR within the past 24 months.

After successfully completing the programme, you'll receive the internationally recognised PADI Rescue Diver certification card.
