Becoming a rescue diver is an exciting and rewarding goal that every diver should aspire to. Knowing how to cope with various stressful situations before they become emergencies will boost your confidence and open up a whole realm of diving opportunities.
On this course you will be taught a lot more about how to evaluate dive sites, boats, and conditions with an eye towards diving safety. This course serves as a perfect introduction to the techniques used the world over by dive masters and instructors to conduct safe and fun dives. The main point taught on the course is that prevention is better than cure. The majority of all stressful situations encountered on dive trips can be avoided by good planning.
The P.A.D.I Rescue Diver Course teaches you to see problems before they occur. As with all P.A.D.I courses, Rescue Diver is a modular course that starts with how to respond to simple potential problems, then moves on step by step to situations as complex as organising an entire search and rescue. Ordinarily lasting between two and three days, the course begins with videos and theory sessions in the classroom. You will then move on to practicing assisting other divers in the water, before beginning to role-play more serious situations. By the end of the course you will be confident and competent to organise and coordinate searches with multiple dive teams as well as be able to perform CPR. Some people are daunted by the idea of this course, but you will soon find you are much more capable than you think.
This is a fun course for all that take it. It certainly improves your diving skills.
