The Rescue Diver course is an important stepping stone to the professional qualifications in the PADI system, notably the Dive Master. It is also the first time as a diver where you start to formally consider the safety of others.
The course prerequisites include having documented recent first aid training. If you do not have recent first aid training we can also handle this via the Emergency First Response course (The cost for the Rescue Diver course plus EFR is €749).
The theory element of the course is covered via an e-learning account which can be activated remotely and we do the in water training over four days. Scheduling is flexible on the condition that we have a minimum of two students.
Please contact us for more information on upcoming course dates.
Some people are put off by the “serious” nature of some of the course content but it is very rewarding, a lot of fun, and when taught well, essential in developing solid and reponsible divers. Skills and confidence increase A LOT.
