Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed.
During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
Objective is for divers to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well-being of others in their surrounding. Good diver is not about solving the problem but rather preventing it in the first place.
You must be 15 years old as at enrolment. Junior diver certification will be granted to divers age 12 to 14.
You should have a minimum of PADI (Junior) Adventure Diver and have completed Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive or equivalent qualification from other recognized dive agencies.
You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course.
