PADI Rescue Diver Course

“Challenging”, “Rewarding” & “Exciting” are the words most commonly used to describe PADI’s Rescue Diver Course.
Rescue training takes you beyond the purely recreational level by expanding your knowledge and skills to assist other divers, learn how to handle problems and emergencies and how to prevent them in the first place, leaving you with a sense of security as a diver that cannot be obtained in any other way. Many divers find this course both demanding yet rewarding and quite often say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.
