PADI Rescue Diver Course

PADI Rescue Diver Course

Learn how to prevent emergencies & become the diver that others rely on with the PADI Rescue Diver course in phuket

Getting the PADI Rescue diver course in Phuket will be one of the most challenging & rewarding of PADI certification courses available. The PADI Rescue diver course improves your skills and confidence as a diver & is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to identify, manage & prevent diver or scuba diving emergencies as a result this course is slightly more demanding than the PADI Open Water, or Advanced Open Water as you might possibly have to rescue multiple people while still in the water and potentially out of it, but it is also a lot of fun because your instructor can develop rescue scenarios that will challenge and engage your level of awareness, water skills and general fitness.

The course also teaches you to have more awareness of other divers and the problems that can occur; most importantly you will learn how to recognise potential danger before it becomes an emergency so you’ll be able to efficiently manage scenarios such as diver stress, panicked swimmers or an unconscious diver.

The Rescue diver course is often quoted as being one the best scuba diving courses a diver can complete, with the simulated rescue scenarios concentrating on serious subjects whilst having fun and therefore making you a much more visibly aware diver and source of knowledge for those with lower levels of training.

Phuket PADI Rescue Diver Course Options & Pricing

There are two main options with the Rescue Diver course depending on your current level of first aid training. If you have a valid first aid qualification or training certificate the PADI Rescue diver course can be done over two days. If you do not have a first aid certification you will need to also complete a PADI Emergency First Response course before you become a certified Rescue Diver.

PADI eLearning Available

The very important theory for the PADI Rescue Diver course is quite intensive so you can free up some time and concentrate on your in-water skills by completing all the theory at home. For an additional THB 1,000 you can have all your theory complete and skip the classroom section completely when on your Phuket holiday.

What You Get Out Of It

That confidence is key to maintaining a healthy diving lifestyle. This course fills in the knowledge gaps and focuses on making sure that when you are diving that not only have you made sure you are doing it safely, but consequently those with you and those around you are also diving safely.

So confidence is certainly what you get from this course, confidence which can’t be lost and knowledge that will stay with you for a very long time, knowledge which you can share with others to help them become better & safer divers and knowledge that above all keeps you safe in all your scuba diving activities.

The next step is the professional levels, with the confidence and skills gleaned from your Rescue course you’ll certainly be ready to enter the professional ranks and complete your PADI Dive Master course.

You will also receive a PADI Rescue Diver Manual & first aid pocket mask.
