The PADI Rescue diver course is a pivotal step in expanding a diver's knowledge and experience. Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves to consider the safety and well-being of other divers.
This course expands the basic problem prevention and accident management skills student divers learnt during their PADI Open Water Course. At Rescue level students are ready to learn to manage more complex dive emergences and to apply direct intervention techniques to assist others in an emergency. By its nature, the course is demanding, through realistic in its conduct, content and approach. Although the nature and context in which rescue training may be used is serious, the course is an enjoyable challenge that builds diver confidence.
The Rescue course involves learning the basic theory of commonly encountered problems and how to prevent and deal with them. This is then built on in water training sessions giving the student foundation skills which they can adapt to their personal differences and needs. Skill development encourages divers to experiment, learning to capitalize on their strengths, recognise their limitations and consider these in emergency situations.
Student divers learn to first think about the options available for handling an emergency and then act using the approach that best suits the situation.
After the student has been taught the basic skills required for rescuing divers they are then faced with scenarios where they demonstrate the skills learnt.

It’s been an outstanding trip for early season diving aboard MV Halton. All the classics, plus scenic walls and IANTD tech training on both OC and CC. Great crew, amazing team spirit among divers and a huge laugh. It was a pleasure to arrange. Massive weather, cracking food. Thanks everyone. #greenwatercoldsteel #vqtech #iantduk #vobsterquay #mvhalton #otterdrysuits #kubi #nautilusdiving #redbareccr

CCR diving offers an incredible new perspective on your diving ambitions. Ian Humphrey and Ross Freeguard have entered a new and rewarding world. No tech diving experience necessary - ask Ross who has arrived from sport diving to earn his place as a Tech CCR diver. Ian continues his tech progression building on a solid foundation of IANTD ART diving. Proud moments for #vqtech
