PADI Rescue Diver
The PADI Rescue Diver course is where you move beyond the recreational diving level. You expand your knowledge of the “science” aspects of diving along with rescue/emergency techniques and procedures.
Prerequisite: PADI Advanced Open Water Certificate, or equivalent rating, with another training agency and successful completion of a sanctioned CPR program within the past 24 months.
The PADI Rescue Diver course is designed to develop important knowledge & skills while Diving In Thailand to effectively perform rescues and assist in emergencies.
To be able to manage diving-accident situations and render proper first aid when necessary.
The course enjoyable and highly interesting, although that the nature and context in which such training may be used is quite serious.
The primary objective of this dive course is to prevent the need for the use of rescue skills. A good scuba diver does not only solve problems, he/she prevents them in the first place!
