The Rescue Diver course is considered one of the most challenging and rewarding courses a diver can do.
It will increase your confidence as you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water as well as improving your own diving skills. You will be a better Dive Buddy by the end of it too as you’ll be practicing your problem solving skills until you no longer have to think about it - Great bonus for your usual Dive Buddy!
It’s a serious course taught in a fun way.
You will learn how to:
- self rescue
- recognise and manage stress in other divers
- rescue panicked divers
- rescue unresponsive divers
- manage in an emergency and what equipment to use and how to use it
Online or independent study with a manual through five knowledge development sections. This includes an exam.
