Becoming a Rescue Diver not only teaches you how to prevent dive accidents and emergencies — and how to manage them should they arise — but it also consolidates your skills and experience from earlier courses, making you a more confident and accomplished diver. More than any other course, Rescue Diver training increases awareness of the dive environment and the factors that affect diver safety.
During this course, you’ll learn how to foresee, prevent and manage potential diving accidents; from assisting a tired diver to handling possible emergency scenarios, you’ll practice applying the knowledge and skills that can make the difference in the unlikely event that problems do arise.
What will you learn?
The PADI Rescue Diver Lite course is a 4-day course.
- Theory: After you pre-book for the course, you will get access to the PADI Rescue Diver manual (ebook) online and offline versions*. You fill the knowledge reviews on your own from chapter 1-5. On the boat you will watch the PADI Rescue Diver VIDEO and your instructor will check the knowledge reviews. You will be required to complete an Emergency Assistance Plan and the multiple choice Rescue diver exam.
- Boat dives:10 in-water exercises and 2 open water rescue scenarios
- Performance based:All PADI courses are performance based. In other words, you need to be able to complete each skill proficiently before we move on to the next one. For that reason, we schedule the course for 4 days. This gives us time to get back in and do some more skills practice if required.
* We strongly suggest that you do some of your reading and knowledge reviews before you arrive here in Kos island which will cut down the time that you need to spend during your holidays.
