Our PADI Rescue Diver Course is a two day course and includes a day of theory and pool, and a day on the dive boat!
The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:
- Self rescue
- Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
- Emergency management and equipment
- Rescuing panicked divers
- Rescuing unresponsive divers
You must have the Advanced Open Water Diver certification and a current Emergency First Responder or equivalent rating including CPR training before you can start this course. If you wish to do them with us, we can work out a package price. If you do Rescue and EFR together, the EFR course is reduced slightly in price too..
We need a minimum of two students to conduct the courses. Please contact us to see if we have any courses organised for the dates you are interested.
We include the use of all of the equipment you will need, the PADI Rescue Diving Manual, all of your tank
fills, complimentary pick up and drop off to your in-town Exmouth accommodation and your certification fees. Each student for our Rescue Course must have the following: Advanced Open Water or equivalent certification card, a log
book, a timing device and a logged dive from within the past 12 months.
You must have a dive from within the past 12 months to begin your PADI Rescue Course with us. If you do not have a recent dive, you will need to complete a refresher with us before commencing the course. Refresher sessions are a simple review of basic dive planning, equipment, theory and dive skills. These sessions usually take 1.5-3 hours and include time in the pool, so you will need to wear your bathers and bring a towel. We schedule our refreshers daily and
advanced bookings are required.
