RESCUE DIVER Prevent Problems and Manage Them

What will I learn?

The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:

– Self rescue
– Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
– Emergency management and equipment
– Rescuing panicked divers
– Rescuing unresponsive divers

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding, course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

Who should take this course?

Any PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course. Your instructor may also offer the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider specialty diver course at the same time.

What scuba gear will I use?

You’ll use your basic scuba equipment and will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation. During exercises, you’ll work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and perhaps CPR mannequins. We will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit, which will be useful throughout your diving career.

How can I start learning now?

We offer group and private classes. Take a look at our 2020 Rescue Diver Class Schedule and stop by, call, or contact us to enroll in a PADI Rescue Diver course. If our group class options do not work for your schedule, contact us about private lessons!

 

Your next adventure

After completing CPR and first aid and the PADI Rescue Diver course, you should take the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course. Together, these three courses round out your ability to handle scuba diver emergencies.

For more information about this or other PADI courses have a chat with one of the CALYPSO of TAMPA BAY Team members.
