What do I learn in the PADI Rescue Diver course?
In the Rescue Diver Course, you learn how to deal with problems of all kinds.
We cover not only the most horrific and various disaster scenarios, but also how to handle minor “inconveniences”, such as a tired diver, cramp, or an out-of-air situation.
The PADI Rescue Diver eLearning covers the theory in depth.
You learn about diving physiology, and psychology of divers with stress or panic.
And how you can recognize small signs before they really become a problem.
Lots of useful information and knowledge, it may also help you in your everyday life.
Rescue exercises & Scenarios
We teach you all rescue skills, and you practice all skills.
There are different techniques, and rescue actions, no situation is the same, so you will learn a variety of techniques, skills, and rescue actions.
We give you the tools to act, and you use these in a way that works for you.
There isn’t a right way, which means you also have your own input.
Or you may even find a new technique that works!
After you learned all different rescue techniques there are 2 scenarios, which put everything you have learned into practice.
You will be prepared with the rescue exercises, and know how to act quickly, effectively, and almost instinctively.
You will feel much more comfortable in your wetsuit after this course.
