Why Take the PADI Rescue Diver Course?

One of the most valuable skills learned in this course is when to know if it’s time to call a dive. It’s difficult to get into trouble if you don’t get in the water! Other skills learned are first aid CPR and underwater as well as surface and shore rescues. You will also learn how to use safety tools effectively.

Another reason to take this course is to advance in your scuba career towards Divemaster (become a dive professional) or Master Diver.
