Rescue Diver

People who have completed the Rescue Diver course will tell you it's the best course that they have done, and that perhaps more than any other certification to date, they felt like they had earned it by the end of the course. Challenging and rewarding best describes the course, but at the same time your diving will be transformed.

You'll learn to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well being of other divers. It's a great way to build your confidence. Rescue diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and if necessary manage emergencies.

You'll cover topics such as self-rescue and diver stress, emergency management and equipment, panicked diver responses, in water rescue breathing protocols, removing an injured diver from the the water and then how to put it all into practice in some dive accident scenarios.
