Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well being of other divers. Rescue Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies. Many divers say this is the best course they have ever taken. During the course you will cover the following:
Self-rescue and diver stress, Emergency management and equipment, Panicked diver response, In-water rescue breathing protocols, Underwater problems, Surfacing the unconscious diver, Egress (exits), missing diver procedures and Dive accident scenarios with first aid procedures for pressure related accidents.
The Rescue Course Includes
- Course materials (books, manuals, etc)
- Vetchies Pier, Quarry Dives, (Skill Practice)
- Boat Dive (Rescue Simulation)(Durban Only)
- Shore/surf entry with no scuba (Rescue Simulation)
- Internationally recognized certification
- Orientation to Rescue Course
- Panicked diver response
- Underwater problems
- Missing diver procedures
- Surfacing the unconscious diver
- In-water rescue breathing protocols
- Dive first aid
- Swimming and non-swimming rescue techniques
- Emergency management and equipment
- Egress (exits)
- First aid procedures for pressure related accidents
- Dive accident scenarios
The course price includes your manuals and your certification and use of all equipment for the duration of the course. To start the PADI Rescue course you need to have at least 20 logged dives. Before certification you must either complete the PADI Emergency First Response Course or have done a recognized first aid course in the past two years (proof required).
A fantastic optional extra would be to do the PADI Search & Recovery Specialty. The two go perfectly hand in hand and will be necessary if you ever find yourself in an emergency situation. The Course duration is 5 days in total.
