Rescue skills are essential for the ever-present possibility of having to handle divers in trouble. You’ll learn the Rescue Diver mindset and approach, which includes how to recover unconscious divers from depth and carry out an effective rescue tow to safety, conduct lost diver search patterns, and react to panicked divers on the surface and underwater. This is a highly underrated course, which teaches divers to look past their own diving and take into consideration worst-case scenarios, with appropriately planned contingency responses. 

 

Here at Dive Spear and Sport, we minimize student numbers to 3 and “up the ante” to really simulate what happens in a rescue situation…. we recommend you don’t make any plans for the night after, because you’ll feel full of new information, a huge confidence boost as a diver…. and ready for bed!

1-DAY COURSE INCLUDES:

 

  • eLearning Modules
  • Classroom Session
  • Pool Session
  • Ocean Session
  • All Gear Hire
NOT FIRST AID / CPR / O2 PROVIDER CERTIFIED?

 

Prior to commencing the Rescue Diver Course, all participants must complete a First Aid and CPR course or already have a valid workplace-approved first-aid certificate. This must be presented before commencing Rescue Diver course. As an option, we run First Response Training International courses here at Dive Spear Sport, and completing these will fulfil the requirement.
