RESCUE DIVER Prevent problems, and manage them if they occur.

The PADI Rescue Diver Course with DIVE SOURCE

"Challenging" and "rewarding" best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you've already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.

What You Learn

  • Self-rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all your basic scuba gear including a dive computer and accessories. We give all our students 50% off rental gear when on a course if they require any, plus all your airfills are free.

The Learning Materials You Need

This course requires you to complete the Padi Rescue Diver eLearning course before you do the classroom review and the practical skills sessions in open water over two days of diving.

You may register and pay for the eLearning HERE

You also will require some course materials with the eLearning crewpack which includes a pocket mask, Rescue skills slate, and Rescue Diver emblem.
