The PADI Rescue Diver course is one of the most challenging, but it’s an excellent way to improve your confidence in the water and become a safer diver. One of the main aims of the Rescue Diver qualification is to teach divers how to perform self-rescue, as well as assisting others.
It’s an essential step to take if you want to a be a safe and self-sufficient diver. The course develops your knowledge of rescue practices both in and out of the water, teaching you how to effectively perform and assist in diver rescues. You will also receive training in managing diving accident situations, filling in the paperwork that’s often required during and after a diving incident, and will have the CPR and first aid skills that you learn in your Emergency First Response course reinforced.
The PADI Rescue Diver course is incredibly rewarding, but it’s also very challenging. The intention is to teach divers what to expect from a stressful rescue situation, and thereby properly equip them to deal with difficult scenarios in real life. Despite its challenging nature, most divers who have completed the qualification say it’s the best course they’ve ever done. This course is an essential step in your development as a well-rounded and safe diver.
