What you are going to learn
You will learn how to deal with dive emergencies using a variety of techniques. Throughout the course you will go through rescue exercises and different emergency scenarios, building the confidence needed to help a person in an emergency situation if ever needed. You will also learn how to self rescue, recognize and manage stress in others, and how to rescue panicked and unresponsive divers. The course opens you up to a number of different situations you may come across, and gives you the knowledge and skills necessary to assist in a safe way.
Typically we will run our Rescue course over one weekend. You’ll complete the class and pool segments during a full day. Followed by four scenarios completed in the Open Water, usually the next day. This can be done at one of our local sites, or in Tobermory (depending upon interest & course sign up).

- Hold an Advanced Open Water certification from PADI or equivalent from another recognized scuba diver training organization.
