The PADI Rescue Diver course is an important and crucial step in expanding your diving knowledge and experience beyond a purely recreational level. This course is one of the most enjoyable courses that PADI has created.
Consisting of both theory and open water training, you will learn all the skills and techniques to assist both yourself and a buddy in an emergency.
