The most rewarding diving course

Divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the biggest but most rewarding challenge they have ever experienced. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and to have more confidence in your diving skills, knowing that you can help others when needed.


During the course, you learn to become a better pair by practicing the problem-solving exercises until it becomes a reflex.


Plus, the class is really fun - it's serious, but we laugh a lot while learning.

Here are the elements you will learn throughout the Rescue Diver course:
  • Recognize stress in a diver.

  • Be ready for an emergency.

  • Give oxygen to a patient

  • Assistance from the shore or boat.

  • Attend a conscious diver on the surface.

  • To identify in a preventive way the material failures.

  • Les sorties avec un plongeur conscient/inconscient.

  • Thermal failures of the body system.

  • Manage an accident related to pressure.

  • The procedures for a missing diver.

  • Self Rescue.

  • Manage a drowning.
