Getting Certified Is a Three Step Process

  • Step 1  is to acquire all of the important academic information every certified diver must know. Traditionally, it required attending several hours of formal classroom training. Now, through on-line training, you can complete this phase through self-study, at your own pace, in the convenience of your home or office.
  • Step 2  is to complete classroom academics & your in-water skill-development training. This takes place in a swimming pool or similar body of confined water. Here you will learn the fundamental skills that every diver needs to know. (It’s also a lot of fun.)
  • Step 3  is to complete your open-water training dives under the supervision of your Padi Instructor. Here you will apply what you have learned during your academic and skill-development sessions, while learning practical lessons that can only be gained through real-world experience in open water.

What does it cover?

PADI Rescue Diver Course Online content is broken down into 5 easy-to-learn sections after an introduction. The course covers a wide range of topics including, The Psychology of Rescue, Recognizing Diver Stress, Accident Management, Assisting Responsive and Unresponsive Divers at the Surface and Underwater, Equipment Problems, Oxygen Delivery Systems, Missing Diver Procedures, Responding to Diver Emergencies and Inwater Rescue Breathing.

The course is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to prevent, and if necessary, manage dive emergencies. The course broadens a divers awareness and improves their skills and confidence. Most certified PADI Rescue Divers look back on their rescue training as one of the most challenging sometimes demanding and therefore most rewarding courses they have taken. The subject is serious but the training is fun.
