PADI SCUBA Diver Training Europe

PADI Rescue Diver

Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.

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 take this course, you must be:

  • PADI Advanced Open Water (or qualifying certification from another organisation)
  • Be trained and current for first aid and CPR within the previous two years
  • Be of 15 years of age or above (12 – 14 years of age for PADI Junior Rescue Diver)

You’ll learn to respond to dive situations and emergencies – but more importantly, you’ll learn to identify potential problems and emergencies before they become serious, and you’ll learn to deal with them safely and effectively. The diving improvement you’ll notice comes from the fact that your own diving becomes almost second-nature, as you focus instead on other people and on the nuances that let you predict what’s about to happen. Skills you will learn are as follows:

  • Self-rescue
  • Recognising and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers
