Puerto Rico Diving Centre, Gran Canaria
PADI Rescue Diver Course

How would you deal with a diving emergency, such as a panicked diver at the surface or underwater? What about a diver who surfaces and says that their buddy is missing? What about the care for a diver with suspected decompression sickness (DCS)? Find out on the PADI Rescue Diver Course.

The Rescue Diver course is an important progression on from Advanced Open Water Diver and turns the focus away from pure dive skills, to those that allow you to deal with diving accidents and emergencies involving yourself and others.

Who should take this course?

What will I learn?
