Why do you need to become a Rescue Diver?
The rescue diver certification (or equivalent) is the central pivot in all the diving system certification, not only in the PADI system but from all scuba agencies!
Just to give you three examples:
- You cannot start to learn technical diving if you are not a certified rescue diver.
- You cannot become a divemaster or instructor if you are not a certified rescue diver.
- You cannot get the Master Scuba Diver recognition level if you are not a rescue diver.
As a matter of fact, many courses and diving certifications cannot be done without a prior rescue diver certification, or equivalent, in most scuba diving agencies like PADI, SSI, SDI/TDI, RAID, IANTD and so.
In all cases, what you will learn during this course can be applied also on the land, like a car accident, where you will be able to give the first aid and handle the situation before the ambulance arrive.
At the end of this course, your knowledge about scuba diving will have taken a huge step up as well as your diving skills! You will never be the same diver as people will look up to dive with you.
During the PADI Rescue Diver course, you will learn:
While diving you will simulate multiple scenarios with your instructor. Learn how to handle a simple cramp, a cut, overheat to an unconscious person or a bent diver. You will learn what to do with the first aids, how to handle people surrounding the wounded person, how to ask for help if needed like a massive unconscious body to move. You will also be able to communicate and give proper diagnostic and information of the situation to the professional emergency staff/police or doctors when they arrive.
- Self and others rescue techniques.
