The PADI Rescue Diver Course is the turning point in your diver training when we turn your attention on how to prevent and handle diving emergencies. During the PADI Rescue Diver Course you will learn the difference between administering rescue skills and rescue management and how both roles play an important part to safer diving. Voted our student’s most favorite course program!

(Part 1): Theory and video sessions The theory and video sessions take place in our custom-built air conditioned classrooms. There are 5 modules of theory and subsequently 5 videos for each module. Each PADI Rescue Diver video can take between 45 -60 minutes to watch. We recommend to watch the first of the PADI Rescue Diver videos in the evening of the first day from 17:30h to 21:00h and in this way they can free up the workload for the following day. Each module is proceeded by a discussion with our PADI Instructor and the study sessions are checked with the use of pop quizzes, or multiple choice quizzes to help monitor the students progress and understanding of the material. The following day we shall start around 09:00h and complete the theory sessions where we left off the previous evening. Did you know that you can complete the PADI Rescue Diver theory in advance by using PADI’s eLearning classes available at PADI’s website? Please see here for more information
Confined Water Rescue scenarios will be conducted from the beach Each skill is carefully explained by the diving instructor and then demonstrated by the instructor, so the student may feel confident that they can perform the skill themselves. Just like the theory and video sessions, there are 5 confined water training modules.
To perform open water rescue scenarios we shall make a dive to trip to the Bida Islands and Phi Phi Ley island to some of the best dive sites the islands have to offer. Between two fun dives various open water rescue scenarios will be conducted. You’ll have to be on your toes here because you never know when the scenarios may occur!. Each fun dive is approximately an hour long and there is a light lunch and refreshments provided between the dives. Academic Training Self rescue and diver stress Diving first Aid Emergency management Equipment considerations Water Skills Training Swimming & non swimming assists Panicked-diver responses Underwater problems Missing diver procedures Surfacing the unconscious diver In water artificial respiration Equipment removal during artificial respiration Egress and first aid for diving accidents Upon completion the student is presented with a temporary PADI Rescue Diver certificate while waiting for their main dive certificate card to arrive from PADI headquarters.
