The PADI Rescue Diver is a 2 day program which develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid. The program is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver. PADI Rescue Diver (or equivalent) certification is also a prerequisite for all PADI leadership programs.

The PADI Rescue Diver program covers:


  • self-rescue and diver stress
  • diving first aid
  • emergency management and equipment considerations
  • swimming and nonswimming assists
  • panicked diver response
  • underwater problems
  • missing diver procedures
  • surfacing the unconscious diver
  • in-water artificial respiration
  • egress (exits)
  • first aid procedures for pressure related accidents
  • dive accident scenarios.

All of these topics are covered in the PADI Rescue eLearning portion of the course.

After successfully completing the program, you'll receive the internationally recognized PADI Rescue Diver certification card.

Be 15 years or older Have a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Certification (or have a qualifying certification from another organization) Be trained and current for First AId and CPR within the previous two years (Check out Emergency First Response CPR and first aid courses).


We normally shedule an EFR course the weekend prior to the rescue course.

Apart from your standard dive equipment there are some additional items that you will need for the course. 

  • A Safety Sausage.
  • Whistle or surface noise maker
  • A Knife
  • A pocket mask
For safety, all students complete the below Scuba Medical Questionnaire that asks about medical conditions that could be a problem while diving. If none of these apply, you sign the form and you're ready to start. If any of these apply to you, as a safety precaution your physician must assess the condition as it relates to diving and sign a medical form that confirms that you're fit to dive.

Comments: This course should be mandatory. It not only trains you to be aware of your safety, but that of your buddy and any team you dive with. The instructors were very supportive and awesome to dive with. The rescue diver course is by far the best I've done. Cheers Abyss.
