Rescue Diver Course

US$498 (includes manual)
The Rescue course is an important step in expanding the Advanced Open Waters divers knowledge and experience. Rescue divers learn to look beyond themselves and onto considering the safety and well being of other divers. Although challenging, completion of the course is a rewarding way to build your confidence in and around any water.

This performance based program will involve knowledge reviews, confined water sessions and open water sessions. During the five open water sessions, youll cover self-rescue skills, knowledge of diver stresses, diver first aid, emergency management skills, panicked diver responses, underwater problems, missing diver procedures, surfacing the unconscious diver, in-water rescue breathing protocols, how to exit both responsive and unresponsive divers, amongst others.

Upon successful completion of the course, the student is certified as a Rescue Diver and qualifies for all Professional level PADI courses, beginning with the PADI Dive Master certification.

Course Processing Fee (PIC) and Equipment.

**Please Note**
As of January 1, 2006 PADI requires that every student have, in their possession, a personal set of current materials for study and use during the course and for reference afterward. The materials that are required for the course are valuable and provide the opportunity for the long term review of key information. All materials can be made available through Sun Divers for purchase. Please give us a call if you are interested in a course and we will let you know what you need.
