Rescue Diver


Probably the most fun and rewarding of all the courses in the PADI system, any diving professional will have fond memories of their PADI Rescue Diver course!

Building on the foundation of your previous PADI courses, the goal of the Rescue Diver course is to develop your diving knowledge and skills in order to anticipate and prevent potential problems before they occur. In the unfortunate instance that something does go wrong, you’ll have the training and confidence to manage the situation, look after yourself and others, and administer first aid as necessary.

The PADI Rescue Diver course is a great way to really boost your confidence in the water, as well as being a stepping stone towards the PADI Go Pro courses, and an exciting career as a PADI professional!
