Your first day will consist of pool and class work, equipping you with basic skills such as assisting a panicking diver, surfacing an unconscious diver, and out of air drills. In the classroom you will learn how to quickly identify stress in divers and how to minimise the risks associated with differing diving conditions.
The second and third days are spent on the shore and on the boat simulating emergencies, conducting searches, and learning how best to manage the human resources available, as well as learning how to administer oxygen, and in-water artificial ventilation techniques. Be prepared for unexpected rescue scenarios!
After completing your PADI Rescue Diver certification, and five PADI Specialty ratings, you may apply to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver. This is the highest non-professional level in the PADI system of diver education. Earning PADI Master Scuba Diver rating demonstrates that you have gained significant training and experience in a variety of dive environments. Ask us for an application form.
