The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.
To become a PADI Rescue Diver, you must first complete the one day Emergency First Response Course (EFR), an internationally recognised first-aid certificate.
The full Rescue Diver course is scheduled over 3 days, developing your dive skills to be able to anticipate and prevent potential problems from occurring with both yourself, your dive buddy as well as other divers.
To enrol in the PADI Rescue Diver course, you must be a minimum of 15 years or older and have a PADI Advanced Diver certification (or have a qualifying certification from another organization)
Be trained and current for first aid and CPR within the previous year (Ask your instructor about Emergency First Response CPR and first aid courses).
If you answer yes to any of the medical questions you must complete a Dive Medical check with your Doctor and obtain written medical clearance before the start of the course.
