Rescue is by far one of the best confidence building courses you can take. In this course you not only expand on your own self-rescue abilities but you learn how to recognize problems and stop them before they become threatening.

Rescue Divers also learn in-water rescue breathing and egress of divers. Emergency First Responder CPR (or equivalent) in the past 2 years is a prerequisite and is always available in conjunction with the Rescue course.

The PADI Rescue Diver who has certification in at least 5 specialties (plus 50 dives) equals the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating, the highest non-professional rating in the dive industry.

"Challenging" and "rewarding" best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you've already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.

The Fun Part

The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it's the best course they've ever taken.
