“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 course consists of a total of three Saturdays, the first two in the classroom and pool and the third in open water at Capernwray.
What you learn:
- Self rescue
- Recognising and managing stress in other divers
- Emergency management and equipment
- Rescuing panicked divers
- Rescuing unresponsive divers
- Supervision by a PADI professional
- All Course Material
- Pool Hire
- Certification card
- PADI pro instructor
