Rescue Diver PADI

Rescue Diver | PADI

Challenging and rewarding best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course.

As a diver there is always a possibility that something happens. Handling with medical problems is slightly different from acting in other situations.

Effective acting is a part of your Rescue Diver course, but more important is that you learn about prevention.



The PADI Rescue Diver course is possible for everyone with a minimum age of 12 years and must be certified as a PADI Adventure Diver or equivalent.

Be trained and current for First aid and CPR within the previous two years. If you are not certified for this we include also the EFR – Emergency First Response training in the Rescue diver course.


Program Content

In the 5 theory sessions of the course we will discus the subjects: self rescue, stress, equipment considerations, first aid and management of emergency situations. The theory will be finished with an exam.

5 open water sessions were you will train how to handle with a diver who has problems at the surface, (both rational and in panic), an unconscious diver, bringing an unconscious diver to the surface, how to handle with a missing diver, reanimate a diver in the water etc.

At the end we have at least 2 scenario’s in which you show how to handle when something happen.

If you are already trained and current for First aid and CPR you can follow the 3 day Rescue diver course otherwise you need the 4 day course what include the EFR – Emergency First Response training.
