Who can join the PADI Rescue Diver course?
This isn’t a course for professional divers. It’s for people just like you. You can join PADI Rescue if you are already an Advanced Open Water diver and at least 12 years old. Your Advanced Open Water certificate can be from any dive agency (not just PADI).
To join the PADI Rescue Diver program you’ll need to have taken PADI Emergency First Response (EFR) or other CPR and First Aid course within the past two years, or take it with us here when you arrive in Bali.
How long does it take?
Three days but if you take eLearning first you will just need two days here in Bali.
If you need to take Emergency First Response (EFR) please allow for an extra day. Our EFR classes start in the morning and you’ll be finished by mid afternoon.
What happens during the course?
One day will be in the classroom, one day in the pool and one day in the ocean. If you if you take eLearning before coming to Bali you can skip the classroom day. The ocean dives will be at our house-reef in Sanur, Denpasar.
You’ll learn how to confidently respond to dive emergencies, either yours or other divers. More importantly, you’ll learn how to stop accidents before they happen. You’ll get info on the psychology of rescue, recognizing diver stress, and accident management. You will practice assisting divers at the surface and underwater and perform a missing-diver search. You will bring an unconscious diver to the surface slowly and safely. You will learn about how equipment problems are the trigger for so many accidents and how to prevent them. You will get hands-on practice giving oxygen to divers.
Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During the final day in the ocean you will put everything together in a challenging but fun rescue scenario. Take a look at the video at the top of this page to see what you’ll be doing on your final rescue role play.
When can I take the Rescue course?
Any day, subject to availability. Try to book as early as possible because we have a limited number of Instructors available.
Can just one person take the course?
What if I need to cancel or can’t complete the course?
We will be happy to refund any payment or deposit if you cancel for any reason up to 4 PM the day before. We also refund if you can’t complete the course for any reason.
