The PADI Rescue Diver is one of the most rewarding courses you will ever take! This course teaches you the techniques to avoid and manage problems and improves your confidence as a diver. During the course you’ll become a better buddy by enhancing your ability to identify potential problems and by practicing emergency protocols. The subject is serious but the training is fun! Many divers tell us the PADI Rescue Diver course was their favorite!
