The PADI Rescue Diver course is divided into three sections: Knowledge development, Skill development and Practical application.
The duration of the PADI Rescue diver course is over four or five days.
Prerequisite for this course is a PADI Advanced Open water certificate or the equivalent certification with another training agency.
If you are not a holder of a valid First Aid (CPR) certification, the PADI Emergency First Response (EFR) course will commence on day one of your itinerary.
During the 3 day 2 night liveaboard trip there are 10 – 12 dives scheduled. A minimum of 3 dives are dedicated to specific Rescue diver skill development – the remaining dives will be non-training pleasure dives.
Outside of your non-training dives you can expect spontaneous real life Rescue scenarios, to further develop your Rescue skills.
These scenarios will range from panicked divers on the surface, missing diver searches and in water resuscitation of unconscious divers.
Rescue divers will be briefed on emergency procedures for man overboard, radio operations, oxygen use, life raft and distress flare operations as well as the operation of Rescue boats and diver recall.
If you haven’t dived for a while a Scuba Tune up or check out dive (to refresh your knowledge and skills) may be required. No extra cost involve unless you request a separate session prior to the trip.
