Recognition of a potential dive accident is the main focus of this course. This program makes the subject of accident prevention and management interesting, challenging and extremely rewarding. The focus is on both self-rescue techniques and assisting others in the prevention of dive emergencies, and how to best respond in the event of an emergency. The Rescue Diver course is perfect for any diver who plans to dive with family members or friends or those that want to sharpen their dive skills and help other divers. It will also prepare the diver for accident prevention and the application of rescue techniques and skills in diving.
This program meets for several sessions to cover the three key components – Academics, Skill Development in Confined Water, and practicing actual Rescue Diving Scenarios in Open Water.
The required Emergency First Response and Emergency Oxygen Provider classes are scheduled during the Rescue Diver program to allow all requirements to be met.
