The Rescue Diver Course is best described as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course. Why? Because you will learn to prevent and manage problems in the water and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practising problem-solving skills until they become second nature. The Rescue Diver Course is also really fun. Between all the practice and exercises, this course allows for lots of laughter. It is an important and crucial step in expanding your knowledge and experience beyond a purely recreational level. You will find the course enjoyable and highly interesting, although the nature and context in which such training may be used is quite serious. The primary objective of this course is to prevent the need for the use of rescue skills. A good diver does not only solve problems, but he also prevents them in the first place!
To start this course you need a recent EFR (within 24 months). If you don’t have the EFR certification yet you can combine the two courses together. After you successfully completed this challenging course, you will never dive the same again. You will be more aware of yourself but especially of other diver behaviour. Within 7 days you will receive your temporary card by e-mail and within 30 days your permanent card. This certification lasts for life but it is strongly recommended to refresh your rescue skills once in a while.
The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:
In this course, your PADI instructor will teach you how to look after the safety and well-being of yourself and other divers. You will learn to help prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies using a variety of techniques.
Your first step into the most rewarding course. The knowledge development portion consists of five modules. For each of these modules, the PADI material and your instructor are here to help you understand. At the end of each chapter, you complete a knowledge review that you then correct with your PADI instructor. Once you went over the five modules with your instructor and you correctly understood them, you must complete the PADI Rescue Diver exam. Moreover, an Emergency Assist Plan is required to complete the course. This knowledge development helps to prepare you for the confined water and the open water sessions.
Confined Water session
Practice and discover new skills that will help you manage dive related problems. Either in our nice pool or in a quiet bay, you will put your knowledge of practice. With your instructor, you will go over the necessary skills you need to master in the Open Water to become a Rescue Diver. Your instructor will demonstrate how to respond to a tired diver, a panicked diver, a distressed diver underwater, how to surface an unresponsive diver, how to deal with an unconscious diver on the surface, how to exit an unresponsive diver from the shore and how to administrate in-water rescue breaths.
Open Water Dives
Put everything you’ve learnt during the previous days together. Go out on our spacious boat for Open Water dives. You will be asked to repeat the skills you previously mastered during the confined water sessions. Some additional skills will also be introduced during this trip on the ocean. Your ability to prevent, assess and manage different problems that can occur on a boat will be tested as well. The different skills you will go over include: Underwater search patterns using a compass, missing diver procedures, a response from a boat to a responsive but distressed diver, exiting an unresponsive diver from the ocean onto a boat, First Aid for pressure-related injuries and oxygen administration, a response from a boat to an unresponsive diver on the surface, in water rescue breathing techniques.
All bowl of wax, once all Rescue exercises and performance requirements have been met, the final test before being certified as a PADI Rescue Diver is the Rescue scenarios. The first one being the Unresponsive Diver Underwater and the second one is Unresponsive Diver at the Surface. During the first scenario, you will search and locate a missing diver during an accident simulation. You will then bring the diver simulating unresponsiveness to the surface using controlled positive buoyancy. The second one consists of effectively respond to an unresponsive, non-breathing diver during an accident simulation. This includes in-water rescue breathing, removing the equipment, towing the diver, exiting the water and providing CPR and emergency oxygen. These two scenarios are set up to be as realistic as possible.
