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

The PADI Rescue Diver Course with Blue Water Divers

"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.

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it's the best course they've ever taken. he PADI Rescue Diver course is the first step in expanding your knowledge and experience beyond a purely recreational level. It is the foundation for all leadership-level training: Divemaster, Assistant Instructor, Instructor and beyond.

What You Learn

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

The Learning Materials You Need
