The PADI Rescue Diver course is a pivotal step in expanding a diver's knowledge and experience. Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves and to consider the safety and well-being of other divers. This is why the PADI Rescue Diver certification is a prerequisite for all PADI leadership-level training. Rescue diver training expands the basic problem solving, prevention and accident management skills that divers learned in the PADI Open Water course.
At the Rescue level, divers are ready to learn to manage more complex dive emergencies and to apply direct intervention techniques to assist others in an emergency. By its nature, the course is demanding and realistic in its conduct, content and approach. The course is also rewarding and fun.
The sense of reward from this course is huge considering that you have been trained to save lives, stop problems before they happen and enhance your personal dive skills at the same time.
I tell people that the PADI Rescue Diver Course is where I really learned how to dive.
