Rescue Diver Koh Kood DiversRESCUE DIVER COURSE

Rescue diver is the most rewarding and challenging course of all the non-professional courses. You will spend 3 days learning skills to be prepared to help yourself in case of emergency and to help other divers. The rescue diver course will greatly improve your skills  and confidence in and out of the water and make you a better scuba diver.

This course will give you skills for self rescue, recognizing and managing stressed divers.emergency management and equipment, rescuing panicked divers and rescuing unresponsive divers.

In order to complete your PADI rescue diver course you will need have a current first aid or emergency first responder certification. If you do not have one then you will need to take a Emergency First Responder course. Our instructors are certified emergency first responder instructors so the course can be done on-site with our instructors.

The first day of your rescue diver course we will pick you up at approximately 8:15 am and will start with the theory part of the course. You can save some time by doing your home work back home so you have more time for holiday when you are in Koh Kood. We can sent you the book before you come.

Water works

After doing some theory, you will go to confined water training. Here you will learn valuable skills that you can use in case of emergencies in the water.

Your second day of the course will consist of open water training. Here you will practice the skills that you learned in confined water training in open water under real scenario situations. You will be provided with different emergency scenarios and will learn how to spot them and to handle them effectively using all of your skills and knowledge.

After your open water training, you will finish any of the knowledge that your need to complete and have a debriefing of your dives with your instructor.
