Scuba divers describe the Padi Rescue Diver course as the most challenging and the most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, as well as 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 it has becoming your second nature. This course is not only fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
To enroll in a Padi Rescue Diver Course, you must be 12 years old or older, and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (EFR, CPR & First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Padi Rescue Diver course. Please take note that EFR training fee is not including in this course.
The Padi Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, both 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.
For you to gain your certification you will need to spend 3 days with us at the beautiful and relaxed island of Nusa Penida. On the first day you will begin by watching a DVD that covers the five sections of the course while completing the five knowledge development questions. Our Professional PADI Instructors will review with you the knowledge development sections at the end of the day.
On the second day you will start the confined water practice with self-rescue and rescue skills. At this stage, your Padi Instructor will demonstrate the proper techniques and have you practice them over and over until you master them. You will go through all the techniques and progressively start putting them together. You will also learn some rescue techniques outside the water as well as taking your final exam and start preparing your emergency plan.
