Padi Rescue Diver Course Standard

Rescue training takes you beyond the purely recreational level by expanding your knowledge and skills to assist other divers, handle problems and emergencies, and prevent those problems, leaving you with a sense of security as a diver that cannot be obtained in any other way. Rescue certification is a prerequisite for all dive professional level training.

What’s involved?

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 course is a 5-day course.

  • Theory:There are 5 modules of theory and subsequently 5 videos for each module. Each PADI Rescue Diver video can take between 45 -60 minutes to watch. The study sessions are checked with the use of pop quizzes, or multiple choice quizzes to help monitor the students’ progress and understanding of the material. The last thing to do is pass a final exam, although after running through the knowledge in the book, watching the DVD and talking with your instructor this should be just a formality.
  • 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 5 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.
