2DiVE4 Scuba School

Rescue Diver Course


Caring about your fellow divers is a simple thing to do when you go on the right courses. The PADI Rescue Diver Course (£469) is the most rewarding of all the non-professional dive courses 2DiVE4 run.

It is designed to develop your dive knowledge and skills to effectively perform diver rescues and assists, as well as teach you to manage diving accident situations and apply first aid skills. It is very much a “hands on” course, with role-playing to gain the experience needed for most dive incidents.

This course takes 3 days and is scheduled to run twice a year. To complete the PADI Rescue Diver course you must also complete the Emergency First Response Course (£129), or have successfully completed a sanctioned course in CPR within the last 24 months.
