PADI Rescue Diver, Phuket
The PADI Rescue Diver course is designed to train you to help others and be able to confidently and competently assist in the unlikely event of a diving emergency. It will also expand your knowledge of diving, increase your level of diving skill, and make you more aware of what is happening around you in the diving environment.
It is a fun and exciting course and consists of five modules of theory in the classroom followed by a test and 12 different rescue scenarios, with the last being a simulated real diving emergency. We run the courses on Kata and Karon beaches if the conditions allow which sometimes leads to members of the public offering to help in the very realistic scenarios!
The Emergency First Response course (or another, recognised CPR/First Aid certification) is required before you start the course. When you've finished the Rescue course you can continue with the Divemaster course, the first professional level.
From the ages of 12 to 14 you can do the Junior Rescue course. It consists of the same as the Rescue Course but must be upgraded when you reach 15.
