PADI Rescue Diver Course - Seal Sports Mandeville, Louisiana

rescuediverThe PADI Rescue Diver Course is known to be both challenging and confidence-building for divers who have completed their Advanced Open Water Diver certification. Though rigorous, many divers also say that this is one of the most fun and enjoyable courses.

The course is designed to enable you to identify and react to diver problems and diving emergencies should they occur. By the end of this course you will be a far more proficient and confident diver. The PADI Rescue Diver course develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid.

During this course you will encounter realistic rescue scenarios, and you will learn how to effectively manage these situations. You will become competent in the most important rescue skill of all: anticipation and prevention of problems. The rescue diver course also covers emergency preparedness. An emergency can be as simple as a leg cramp, or as significant as a missing diver. Through study and in-water role-playing, you'll learn how to respond to a variety of emergency situations.

The Rescue Diver course has several components:

  • Self Rescue Skills. You will review the self rescue skills learned in your Open Water Diver course.
  • Recognizing and Managing Stress in Other Divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers both underwater and on the surface
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers both underwater and on the surface
  • Knowledge Development
  • Confined Water Dives
  • Open Water Dives (local, no need to travel)

Prior to the course, you must have current CPR and first aid certification (completed within the last two years).
