The 3rd level in recreational scuba diver training is the PADI Rescue Diver course.
To sign up for this course you must have:
• an advanced certification from PADI or another agency;
• a first aid certification (done within the last 24 months)***.
The schedule for the Rescue Diver course looks like this:
• Theory with e-learning: Before you get into the water you will watch a video that explains theory and preview skills you practice during the course. You also have to read the e-learning manual and answer all knowledge reviews in the book, which your instructor will check with you, and you will finish the theory with a multiple choice exam. The reading and answering of all knowledge reviews must be completed before your arrival in the shop; the exam can be taken during your training days.
• Practice: During intense training days in confined and open water you will learn most important rescue diver techniques. You’ll practice handling scenarios such as out of air situations, distressed/panicked diver, or even rescuing unconcious diver and administering emergency oxygen. The minimum duration is 2 days (4 dives), but if you like to intensify your training you can choose to take the course over 3 days (6 dives).
Price includes PADI e-learning and certification, diving equipment rental incl. dive computer, use of all required special equipment, confined water training, boat trips to the Tayrona National Park for the in-water rescue training sessions, and snacks & drinks between the dives.
*** In case you don’t have a valid Emergency First Responder certificate we would need to do that here too. This course can be taken in one day (Theory with video and book, knowledge reviews, exam; practice of general emergency medical care, CPR, AED). See all details here.
