PADI Rescue Diver
About the PADI Rescue Diver ?
Challenging and rewarding best describes the PADI Rescue Diver course. This course will expand your knowledge and experience level. PADI Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well being of other divers. Although this course is challenging, it is a rewarding way to build your confidence, knowledge and experience as a diver. Rescue Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies.The PADI Rescue Diver course focuses on the concept that there is rarely only one way to accomplish a task. There is no single “right” way to perform a rescue, but rather there are many variables and resources the rescuers consider and draw upon, depending upon the scenario.The course takes a flexible, conceptual approach to rescue — a rescuer’s relative size and strength, for example, as well as environmental factors, may dictate or influence what rescue
technique will be most effective. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.
