Be prepared with the PADI Rescue Diver Course. The words that best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course are “challenge and gratification”. Based on what you already know, this course extends your skills on how to prevent problems and, if necessary, how to manage them.
The fun part
The fun aspect of this challenging course lies in the fact that it prepares you for the unexpected. Most divers have found this course “challenging but rewarding” and at the end say it is the best course they’ve ever attended.
You may be eligible for school credit for the PADI Rescue Diver course.
