PADI Rescue badge The PADI Rescue Diver Course

Where you continue your adventure in scuba

Most divers who take the Rescue Diver course tell us this is where "it all comes together."

The Rescue Diver course will familiarize you with techniques and information that will help you to assist another diver in trouble. It will help you affirm your own skill level and instill tremendous confidence in yourself as a diver.

The course consists of a textbook and two classroom sessions and five open water training sessions. You will need a current CPR certification to receive your Rescue Diver certification. Consequently, our Medic/First Aid course is usually taken at the same time as Rescue Diver training. When you complete your Rescue Diver training and any five specialties you will qualify as a PADI Master Scuba Diver, the highest non-instructional rating available in diving.PADI certificate
