Rescue Course


Rescue course is a very important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as well as increasing your confidence. As with all PADI courses, it is 'performance' based and involves knowledge development and 5 rescue training sessions (in pool, confined or open water, from shore or boat) plus 4 open water rescue scenarios. 


What will you learn?

During these, you will cover:

The psychology of rescue

Preparation for emergencies

Accident management

Responding to diver emergencies


Tired diver

Panicked diver

Response from shore or boat with both a responsive and unresponsive diver

Distressed diver underwater

Missing diver

Surfacing the unresponsive diver

Response at surface and exit

First aid for pressure related injuries and oxygen administration


Before starting module 2 of the Rescue Diver course, it is necessary that you have completed an Emergency First Response course within 24 months, or an equivalent 'accepted' certification including primary care (CPR) and secondary care (First Aid) within 24 months.

We do also ask all guests to complete a day's diving prior to starting the Rescue Course, to check weights, buoyancy and equipment.


 Prerequisites: PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent)
