Rescue Diver Course

While uncommon, emergencies in scuba diving can occasionally occur. The PADI Rescue Diver course trains you to anticipate and respond to a variety of diving-related emergencies. You’ll be taught to be aware of your own personal safety and focus on the safety of others. You will gain greater confidence in your own diving abilities whilst developing the mindset necessary to take your first steps towards becoming a PADI Divemaster.
