Pro Dives PADI Rescue Diver course takes 4 days and is conducted in conjunction with a 3 day 2 night dive trip aboard Scubapro. The course consists of 1 day of pool and classroom training followed by a 3 day 2 night liveaboard trip where you will get up to 10 dives on a variety of spectacular outer reef locations. These dives consist of a combination of training and recreational dives.
The Rescue Diver course is a crucial step in your diving education and is highly recommended to all divers. It’s a transitional stage in your diving education where you move beyond just diving for fun by expanding your knowledge of some of the more technical aspects of diving as well as learning rescue and emergency skills. Throughout this course you will come to appreciate and understand the importance of this training relevant to diver safety and incident minimization and management.
Pre-requisite for this course is a PADI Advanced Open Water certificate or the equivalent rating with another training agency. You will also require a current First Aid certificate.
If you are not a holder of a valid First Aid (CPR) certification, we can help arrange this, but will add an extra half a day to the program. Approximate additional cost $70.
Note: The schedule below is based on a candidate having current first aid / CPR certification. If not please allow an additional day.
Complimentary hotel transfer
During the 3 day 2 night liveaboard trip there are 10 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.
