PADI RESCUE COURSE
The PADI Rescue Course expands your knowledge of diving whilst developing your awareness of other divers. It also teach you how to prevent and deal with diving emergencies.
The Rescue Course is a performance based course that involves both theoretical as well as practical exercises. The topics covered include such things as how to handle diving incidents as well as self-rescue. During the course you will carry out 5 rescue training dives up to a maximum depth of 30 metres. These dives will include open water rescue scenarios.
The academic topics you will cover include self rescue, diver stress, emergency management, diving first aid and equipment considerations.
The in-water skills you will complete include swimming and non-swimming assists, panicked diver responses, recognition and solution to underwater problems, missing diver procedures and surfacing the unconscious diver. In addition you will learn how to carry out in-water artificial respiration. This you will do whilst removing diving equipment and exiting the water. You will also be required to carry out first aid on both the conscious and unconscious diver.
