Learn how to prevent emergencies & become the diver that others rely on with the PADI Rescue Diver course
The PADI Rescue diver course is one of the most challenging & rewarding of PADI certification courses you can do. 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, 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; you will learn how to recognise and control potential danger before it can become an emergency and 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 making you a much more visibly aware diver and source of knowledge for those with lower levels of training.
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. 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.
