The PADI Rescue Diver course is designed to train individuals as
self-reliant divers, learning to recognize and prevent potential
problems and deal with emergency situations confidently and effectively.
This comprehensive course includes a manual, theory sessions, confined
and open water skills practice and culminates in full open water
rescue scenarios. Minimum equipment required-mask, fins and snorkel,
although at this level most students would have a lot of their own
kit. The shop at Divers Down is well stocked with all basic equipment
which can be purchased if required.
