PADI Rescue Diver Course
September 10, 2019

Being a recreational diver the term ‘Rescue Diver’ must be a fair hearing for you. If not, don’t worry, let us brief you about the PADI rescue diver course.


About the PADI Rescue Diver Course


PADI rescue diver course trains you to react calmly under challenging situations under or above water. Extricating someone or even your dive buddy under challenging conditions will be the skills you shall master.


It trains you to deal not only with panic situations underwater but also on the surface. The training equips you with the skills that enable you to rescue a diver and escort him smoothly to safety. Above all, the Rescue diver course will make you a confident diver in dealing with emergencies in a calm and composed manner.



The PADI Rescue Diver Course approach!


There are three major parts in the PADI Rescue Diver Course:


  1. Knowledge Development: In the knowledge development section, five knowledge reviews will be completed by a student to get their theory right before entering the water.
  2. Confined Water Training: The students learn ten rescue exercises in confined water, like towing a tired diver, dealing with an unresponsive diver underwater, searching for a missing diver etc.
  3. Open Water Training: The students will perform the exercises mastered in confined water training in open water. It makes them much more comfortable and confident with their skills

Finally, the students will make an emergency assistance plan (EAP) for a particular dive site & sit for the rescue diver exam, which is theory-based to complete the course successfully.


Who should get the PADI Rescue Diver certification?


Are you a recreational diver and love diving? Then the PADI rescue diver course is for you!


When you are diving around the world, and any emergency arises while scuba diving, you should be able to deal with it in a quick but calm manner. The rescue diver course prepares you precisely for the same!


“I do not plan to be a professional diver” is what we have always heard! That doesn’t mean that the rescue diver course won’t be of any help to you. It still feels safe to dive with a rescue diver around! It doesn’t only create a sense of security in the minds of those around you, but also you, yourself are much more confident scuba diving anywhere.


The PADI rescue diver course can be completed in four days and pursued by those with an advanced open water certification & a current EFR (Emergency First Responder Primary & Secondary Care Training within 24 months). You can also complete the EFR training with the PADI Rescue Diver course.
