Advanced Scuba Diving
PADI Rescue Diver
The PADI Rescue Diver Course will build upon what you’ve already learned and expand your safety knowledge and experience.
- Get your PADI Rescue diver licence.
- 1 day classroom theory, 1 day swimming pool, 1 day on the day trip boat.
- Be prepared.
The PADI Rescue Diver Course will build upon what you’ve already learned up to Advanced Open Water to expand your knowledge and experience teaching you to look beyond yourself and consider the safety and well being of other divers.
Although this course can be intense, it is a great way to build your confidence and helps you identify potential problems and gives you the know-how on how to handle them if they do.
“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course.
What 's Involved ?
01.00 PM - 05.00 PM
You and your Instructor will start the Rescue Diver theory by watching a DVD and completing the Knowledge Reviews of your PADI Rescue Diver manual.
The five areas that you will cover are:
- Self rescue
- Recognising and managing stress in other divers
- Emergency management and equipment
- Rescuing panicked divers
- Rescuing unresponsive divers
08.00 AM - 12:00 PM
This morning, you will finish off any of the Rescue Diver theory and complete the multiple-choice Final Exam. Now you should be thinking like a Rescue Diver- that is someone who is aware of their diving surroundings and can make good judgement calls in emergency situations. With the help of your instructor, you will learn to read the signs in yourself and others of potential problems and learn the skills necessary to remediate.
01.00 PM - 05.00 PM
Time to practice to those life-saving rescue skills! The swimming pool is the perfect place for you to hone your rescue skills in a controlled environment before applying them to the open water. You, your Instructor and your classmates will take-on different roles (rescuer, assistant and victim) to make it as life-like as possible. You'll be put through your paces now so that if you're ever faced with a real rescue situation, you'll be better prepared to deal with it. The day normally finishes around 5pm, but if you require more time to practice in the swimming pool or need some more time in the classroom then this is not a problem.
We come and collect you from your hotel lobby and transfer you by one of our air-conditioned mini buses to our day trip diving boat. Your PADI dive instructor will be waiting for you on the boat, and after a short briefing on the boat and the facilities on-board it is time for some breakfast which will be freshly prepared for you by the boat crew. Today's diving will revolve around a number of rescue scenarios that your Instructor will setup. These will be as realistic as possible and are designed to increase your experience and confidence in these situations. Rescue Scenario 1 - Unresponsive Diver Underwater. Search for and locate a missing diver during an accident simulation.
Rescue Scenario 2 - Unresponsive Diver at the Surface. For this scenario, you must demonstate effectively responding to an unresponsive, nonbreathing diver on the surface during an accident simulation. After completion of the required skills there may be some time to have a fun dive, but don't let your guard down- you're a Rescue Diver now! Back onboard the boat, it's time to fill in your log book and debrief you on the dives before celebrating your qualification as a PADI Rescue Diver with your instructor and fellow classmates.
