what should you expect?

Theory is an important part of every PADI course.


As this course introduces you to multiple scenarios that relate to human physiology, this course contains theory lessons chock-full of useful information. You will learn how to maintain first aid for diving and aquatic life injuries, enact emergency procedures and accurately record and report accidents. You’ll be required to read the PADI Rescue Diver Manual and complete the subsequent knowledge reviews. Your instructor will go over these lessons with you to ensure all aspects are fully understood and you are fully prepared for the multiple choice exam. A required DVD will introduce you to the upcoming skills that will be practised throughout the course.

pool practice

Practise your skills to perfection in the swimming pool with no waves, currents or bad visibility to hinder your training. You’ll run through skills pertaining to:

Self Rescue | Distressed/ Panicked Diver Recognition & Assist | Rescue Approaches | Rescue Breathing | Emergency Procedures

Divers prepare to start their rescue practice in the pool.

out in the ocean

You will repeat all the exercises learned in the pool out in the open ocean, dealing with variable conditions. Once you feel thoroughly comfortable with your new skills, your instructor will create a rescue scenario in which you’ll be tested on your ability to handle an emergency. Your instructor will evaluate and certify based on your consideration and use of rescue equipment, the effectiveness of rescue exits and entries, and your search and rescue of a missing/unconscious diver.
