During the PADI Rescue Diver-course, you will 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. This course will prepare you to deal with minor and major dive emergencies.
Rescue divers need to hold the Emergency First Response-qualification (EFR) qualification or comparable first aid qualification.
The Emergency First Response-course teaches you the skills and confidence to properly respond to emergencies; searching for a missing diver, bringing them safely to the surface, administering CPR in-water whilst removing equipment, and methods of getting the victim out of the water.
You will learn a whole host of individual rescue techniques!
