prevent and React to Emergencies with the PADI Rescue Diver course in phuket
The PADI Rescue diver course is the most challenging and rewarding of PADI certification courses available. The PADI Rescue diver course improves your skills, confidence as a diver and is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to identify, manage & prevent diver or scuba diving emergencies.
This course is much more demanding than the PADI Open Water, or Advanced Open Water but our experienced PADI professionals will get you through it. Course standards are high because one day 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. The simulated rescue scenarios concentrating on serious subjects whilst having fun and therefore making you a much more visibly aware diver and a source of knowledge for those with lower levels of training.
It will change your perception of diving. Bad practises and potential issues will garner your attention so that with maybe just a polite word you can save lives.
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. You can have all your theory complete and skip the classroom section completely when on your Phuket holiday. Your instructor will of course check your theory with you and reiterate all of the important issues during the practical lessons.
