PADI RESCUE DIVER
The PADI Rescue Diver program makes the subject of accident prevention and management not only fun, but extremely rewarding! Until now the emphasis of your training has been on basic accident prevention and safe diving. The PADI Rescue Diver program takes you to the next level, expanding this to include accident management and rescue techniques. During the PADI Rescue Diver program you’ll learn how to anticipate, prevent and manage potential dive accidents. From assisting a tired diver to handling emergency scenarios, you’ll practice applying the knowledge and skills that can make the difference in the unlikely event problems do arise
The course develops the principles and information you will need for preventing and handling dive emergencies, with topics including self rescue, diver stress, diving first-aid, emergency management, equipment problems and rescue assistance procedures for both conscious and unconscious victims on the surface and underwater. Knowledge development is completed through independent study of the Rescue Diver manual and review sessions with your instructor.
Then we will move on to confined water training you will learn the techniques for handling various emergency situations:
Response from shore/boat (conscious victim)
Distressed diver underwater
Surfacing the unconscious diver
Unconscious diver at the surface
Egress with an unconscious diver
First aid for pressure-related accidents
Response from shore/boat (unconscious victim)
As you master rescue techniques you will learn to adapt what you practice to suit the situation, your physical attributes, those of the victim and the nature of the diving environment
You will review all the skills that you have learned in the pool and practice them in open water, after which you will take part in two open water training scenarios. These are completed at the end of the course and are an opportunity for you to bring together all that you have learned and apply your new techniques and skills in a realistic simulated rescue situation. Students will act as a team to manage and conduct the rescue with little or no assistance from your instructor.
