Rescue Course


After you have completed the EFR course and gained some confidence and knowledge in First Aid and CPR, it is time to get some more experience and learn about rescuing divers in need. Confined water sessions in the pool with one of our experienced instructors will teach you the skills needed to respond to tired, injured, or unconscious divers, and it will give you a strong knowledge base for preventing and reacting to any diver problems that may occur underwater. The open water dives will enable you to test your new knowledge by putting you in situations where a diver is in distress, and drive you to assess the situation and decide on the best course of action.

Please note that we do not allow more than 4 students per course!

What you learn:

Day 1:
  • Theory session in the morning with watching Section 1, 2 and 3 and checking your knowledge
  • The afternoon session with first five practical exercises in confined water.
Day 2:
  • Theory session in the morning with watching Section 4 and 5 and checking your knowledge
  • The afternoon session with four last practical exercises in confined water.
Day 3:
  • Application of skills on a day trip: You will be treated as a qualified Rescue Diver on this day. With an instructor shadowing you, you will have a chance to see what it would be like in real-life situations. Your instructor will make a special day to follow the last two scenarios required for the course completion.
The Scuba Gear You Use

You’ll use all the necessary scuba equipment and a diving computer during your open water dives: a buoyancy compensating jacket that holds your scuba tank, scuba regulator, a weight system, instrumentation to monitor depth and wetsuit. You will be able to buy your own mask in our retail shop, as it’s always better when it fits with face properly. If you decide to buy anything from us, we will give you a special 10% in our retail store!
