The PADI Rescue Diver Course is both physically and mentally challenging but is described by divers as one of the most rewarding and confidence building PADI courses to take! The PADI Rescue Diver Course will teach you to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and wellbeing of other divers and will prepare you to prevent problems, and in the event, to manage dive emergencies efficiently and effectively.

The PADI Rescue Diver Course will broaden your perspective on considering the needs of other divers. As a PADI Rescue Diver you'll be trained to prevent and manage problems, sharpen your observation skills to help others avoid problems. This course is divided into three sections: Knowledge Development, Skill Development and Practical Application. All three sections will be completed under the professional supervision and guidance of your PADI Instructor.
