Who should take this course?

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

Requirements for Rescue Certification:

  • Must be Advanced Open Water Certified
  • At least 12  years old
  • Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care certification within the past 24 months
  • Emergency Oxygen (O2) Provider certification

Most rescue classes at SeaVentures will give the opportunity to get your EFR and O2 certifications at the same time or near your Rescue course certification. Check the calendar above for dates on all three courses: Rescue, O2, and EFR.

What will you learn?
