Rescue Diver

Divers should aim to earn their Rescue Diver certification. This course is the most challenging yet the most rewarding. You’ll learn how to prevent and manage problems in the water, how to handle difficult situations and how to deal with emergencies. Not only will you gain the confidence to help other people in difficult situations but you’ll also be able to perform self-rescue and manage panic in more constructive ways. Part of the Rescue Diver program is an EFR course that you’ll need to take if you haven’t done so in the past two years. We provide PADI (Rescue Diver) and SSI (React Right + Stress and Rescue) certifications.
The “Rescue Diver” certification course can be complete in 4-5 days, working mostly in half day sessions. We have reservations available every day, at 8:30 A.M. and 2:00 P.M.
