The PADI Rescue Diver course is a pivotal step in expanding your knowledge and experience. As a Rescue Diver you will learn to look beyond yourself to consider the safety and well-being of other divers. This is why the PADI Rescue Diver certification is a prerequisite for all PADI leadership-level training (PADI Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, and Open Water Scuba Instructor). Rescue Diver training expands the basic problem prevention and accident management skills that you already learnt during your PADI Open Water Diver course. By its nature, the course is demanding, though realistic in its conduct, content and approach. “Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course.

What you learn during this course includes:

• Self rescue
• Recognising and managing stress in other divers
• Emergency management and equipment
• Rescuing panicked divers
• Rescuing unresponsive divers


• Be a minimum of a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another training organization
• Have a current (within the last 24 months) First Aid and CPR qualification (see EFR Course)
• Be 12 years of age or older
• Complete the Divers Medical Questionnaire



• 4-5 Days

What you get
