Becoming a Rescue Diver is a truly rewarding experience! By helping to raise your awareness levels and increasing your alertness to others around you , when you are out on a dive the Rescue Diver course provides you with a feeling of confidence and a sense of responsibility. Your new status as a Rescue Diver will also give others a sense of reassurance that there is someone on hand who is well trained in emergency procedures.
This course will teach you how to manage diver stress along with diving first aid, dive equipment problems and how to manage the scene.

What are the course requirements?

You need to be a minimum of 15 and a certified Advanced Open Water diver. You also need to be healthy and will be asked to fill in a medical questionnaire.

How long does the course take?

How will the course begin?

You will start off covering Rescue Diver theory with your instructor. The theory will typically be split into two or three sessions and will also cover how to administer emergency oxygen.

How will the course commence?

After completing this theory you will get into confined water to practices skills such as swimmer rescue and diver rescue and how to give in- water resuscitation to an unconscious diver.
You will then go out on the boat and begin scenarios involving underwater problems such as diver panic, equipment failure and out of air emergencies. After this you will learn what to do in a “missing diver” emergency, where you will practice how to organise a boat and prepare a search.
On the last day you will put all your new techniques together and go through the “final scenarios”, which you will act out from beginning to end. Course DMT's will pretend to be victims and you will be their rescuer in a number of different situations whilst your instructor coaches you from the boat.
When the course is completed, you will feel that you've had a lot of fun whilst taking on the more serious challenge of helping save peoples lives!
