Padi Courses for 2007:
Rescue Diver Course
This 3-day course is open to Advanced Open Water Divers who either have completed the PADI Emergency First Responder Course, or have an equivalent first aid and CPR training certification. The course includes study materials, a pool session, lectures and an exam as required by PADI. Our course also includes four boat dives.
The PADI Rescue Diver course is an important and crucial step in expanding
a divers knowledge and experience beyond a purely recreational
level. Rescue divers learn to look beyond themselves to consider the
safety and well-being of other divers. This is why the PADI Rescue Diver
rating is a prerequisite for all PADI leadership training (Divemaster,
Assistant Instructor, and Open Water Scuba Instructor).
Rescue diver training readies student divers to help prevent
problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies using a variety of
techniques. The course is designed to be demanding, though realistic in
its conduct, content and approach. Although the nature and context in
which rescue training may be used is serious, the course should be
enjoyable and build diver confidence.
PADI Rescue Diver Course Course Philosophy
The PADI Rescue Diver course philosophy
is that there is rarely only one way
to accomplish a task. There is no right
way to perform a rescue, but rather
many options from which rescuers draw
depending on the scenario. The course
takes a flexible, conceptual approach to
performing rescues, a rescuers relative
size and strength, for example, as
well as environmental factors dictate
what rescue technique may be most
effective. Rescue training exercises
provide for individual differences and
capabilities while encouraging divers to
experiment with alternate techniques.
learn to first think about
the options available for
handling an emergency,
then to act using the best
method for the situation.
