Sunreef’s Rescue Course is a pivotal step in expanding a diver’s knowledge and experience.
Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves to consider the safety and well-being of other divers. This is why the PADI Rescue Certification is a prerequisite for all PADI leadership level training (PADI Dive Master, Assistant Instructor and Open Water Scuba Instructor.)
Although the nature and context in which rescue training may be used is serious, the course is an enjoyable challenge that builds diver confidence.
This course is also a step towards the Master Scuba Diver rating, the highest amateur diver rating through PADI.
Diving Challenging environments
Rescue Diver Training expands the basic problem prevention and accident management skills student’s divers learn beginning with the PADI Open Water Diver course. At the Rescue Diver level, students are ready to learn to manage more complex dive emergencies and to apply direct intervention techniques to assist others in an emergency. This will be achieved through a combination of theory, pool and open water sessions. By its nature, the course is demanding, through realistic in its conduct, content and approach.
