Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning. It’s challenging, yet very rewarding.

What to Expect

The PADI Rescue Diver course is divided into 3 learning sessions:

  • Knowledge Development is where you learn concepts on self-rescue; recognizing and managing stress in other divers; emergency management and equipment; rescuing panicked divers; rescuing unresponsive divers. Your instructor will meet you prior the course proper for a briefing and to give you the dive learning materials needed for your home-study. The following action items below need to be completed prior meeting with your instructor for the knowledge review. (1) Read the Rescue Diver Manual (2) Answer the Knowledge Reviews every end of the chapter (3) Watch video. You and your instructor will meet to recap your answers on the knowledge reviews. He will also highlight important points and review the items you may have missed. There is 50-item final exam (multiple choice).
  • Rescue Training Exercises This is where you will practice the skills and concepts explained in the book, video and by your instructor.
  • Open Water Scenarios You will have 2 open water scenarios where you will apply the rescue skills you’ve previously learned.

This is the typical class schedule. We have flexibility in adjusting the program. Feel free to let us know your availability and preference so we can tailor-fit the program that suits you.
