Rescue Diver With Book

In this class you learn how to provide critical services to someone in trouble in and out of the water. Most importantly, you learn how to recognize the signs that indicate that you or another person might be having a problem before that problem becomes critical. Learn how to determine a plan of action in an emergency. The open water practical section will give you real-world experience on how to approach a panicked diver or swimmer on the surface; how to recognize and assist a diver with a problem underwater ranging from a diver that is simply panicked or low on air to one that is completely unconscious; and locating and rescuing a lost diver.

Highly recommended. This is one of those, "I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it!" types of classes.

The PADI Medic First Aid or Red Cross CPR class is a prerequisite. This course is required for the Master SCUBA Diver certification.
