Rescue Diver Course
Take your diving knowledge to the next level with the Rescue Diver Course. You will also need to complete the EFR course or a similar course.
On the rescue diver course, you will learn so much more, not only about others, you will learn about yourself and your capabilities too.
Scuba diving is a very safe sport and when practiced is one of the most rewarding and exciting pastimes one can do, however, it is always better to be prepared for any eventuality.

The next step on the PADI ladder is the Divemaster Course which takes you into the professional status or you may like the Master Scuba Diver Trainer course.
The Rescue Diver Course is both challenging and rewarding and possibly the most interesting course that is taught before moving on to the professional levels.
The course is designed to impart the very important safety aspects of scuba diving, as well as building on the previous Dive Courses you have already taken so far, it will prepare you for many issues that may arise while diving and how to deal with them.
