PADI Rescue Diver Course

How do you take a subject like accident prevention and management and turn it into recreational diving fun? Call it the PADI Rescue Diver training programme!

PADI Rescue Diver with Dive The World

The PADI Rescue course develops your dive knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform basic diver assists and more complex rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid.

This scuba diving training programme is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver. PADI Rescue Diver certification is also a pre-requisite for all PADI leadership programmes.

The programme covers:

  • Self-rescue and diver stress
  • 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.
