Rescue Diver Certification

Learn to look beyond yourself preventing & managing dive emergencies

Divers that are looking for a fun and rewarding challenge should take the PADI Rescue Diver class. During the course you will learn to look beyond yourself, becoming aware of other divers and potential problems they may face. You will learn to prevent many problems from happening before they happen and in the event that a problem should arise you will confidently be able to manage that situation.

Typical class itinerary

    • Watch the PADI Rescue Diver DVD in the comfort of your own home or here at the shop.
