You can enroll in the Rescue Diver Course as a certified Open Water Diver and participate in the Rescue Diver knowledge development and rescue training sessions, in confined water only, while working on your Advanced Open Water Diver certification. Minimum age: 15 years old (12 for PADI Junior Rescue Diver). You will have a successful completion of a sanctioned CPR program within the past 24 months.
During the five open water sessions, you'll cover:
- Self-rescue and diver stress
- AED and emergency oxygen delivery systems
- Emergency management and equipment
- Swimming and non-swimming assists
- Panicked diver response
- Underwater problems
- Missing diver procedures
- Surfacing the unconscious diver
- In water artificial respiration
- Egress (exits)
- First aid procedures for pressure related accidents
- Dive accident scenarios.
Minimum Open Water Training: five sessions over 2-3 days. We generally prefer to conduct our courses over a relaxed 3 days schedule, however if you also need to complete the Emergency First Response Course in conjunction with the Rescue Course then we run the program over 4 days.
Emergency First Response gives you the tools you need to perform CPR and First Aid. Whether you're a diver or a non-diver, Emergency First Response prepares you to properly handle potentially life-threatening situations. To start the course you need dive certification and no minimum age limit.
This comprehensive program is composed of two core modules that can be taught in tandem or as stand-alone courses: Emergency First Response - Primary Care and Emergency First Response - Secondary Care. Together, these courses proved extensive instruction in CPR and First Aid, as well as providing optional (yet recommended) Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and Emergency Oxygen sections. Depending on the amount of home study, the Primary and Secondary courses maybe completed in as little as four hours.
