The PADI Rescue Diver Course builds on what you have already learned in previous certifications.
It is prudent to learn more about self-rescue and the safety of other divers.
The in-water training and theory classes expand your knowledge and skills in accident awareness, preparation, prevention, and problem management.
It is both challenging and rewarding and the physical and mental demands of emergency training are what makes this invaluable experience the most 'serious' Fun Diving, you are likely to have.
The information below includes the age limitations, the typical course schedule and prices.
You must have an advanced diving qualification and be at least twelve years old. To complete the course you also need a current certification for CPR and First Aid. PADI recommends Emergency First Response for this required part of rescue diver training.

The course is comprised of knowledge development, confined water training skills, and open water rescue scenarios. Most dive students will take 3 days to complete the training and the Emergency First Response CPR and First Aid Course will take less than a full day to complete (if required). The lessons will include the following topics;
The study materials required for the course are included in the price. However extra books and dive gear is available from the dive shop.
Your instructor will guide you through the learning process, and teach all the life saving skills in confined and open water environments.
The basic dive gear that is used for the training in the course is included in the price, and some of the extra equipment that you may use during the skills training will include a pocket mask, a first aid kit, an underwater compass, an emergency action plan, AED (automated external defibrillator), and emergency oxygen equipment.
A diver's ability to handle scuba emergencies and coming to the aid of others are improved by taking the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course.
With your rescuer's certification in basic life support and oxygen provision you will feel comfortable and confident to assist or manage the majority of diving emergencies.
The rescue certification is also a pre-requisite for taking the professional route and becoming a PADI Divemaster.

Learning about diver rescues could save a life - maybe even your own?
Divers who have recently certified tend to be focused on themselves, with their main attention aimed at good buoyancy control, calm breathing and comfort with the scuba unit.
As the comfort zone and the experience of the diver increases, it is more likely that these divers will benefit most from this course. The PADI Rescue Certification is based on a very simple principle which is, 'there is no single correct way to perform a rescue'.
This philosophy refers to the fact that although real emergency diving rescues are not common, if they happen then the response from the rescuer would depend on many different factors.
The course structure aims at providing the student with as much knowledge and information about responsive diving skills and techniques.
A broad knowledge base, confident rescue skills and the ability to manage a diving emergency make it a worthy brevet for any serious scuba diver who would be prepared to help other divers in need.
Rescue courses are based on classroom sessions that develop extra physiological and psychological information, shallow water practice, and finish with simulated scenarios in an open water environment.
This generally takes the diving student about three or four days to complete and in my opinion is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding scuba courses available. It is also a pre-requisite for divers with aspirations of professional level training.
