Certification Course

Emergency First Response & RESCUE DIVER course

Learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver. It’s challenging, yet very rewarding.

Description

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.

Academic

The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:

  • Self rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers

You may be able to get college credit for the Rescue Diver course – ask your instructor.

Equipment

You’ll use your basic scuba equipment and will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation. During exercises, you’ll work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and perhaps CPR mannequins. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit, which will be useful throughout your diving career.

Getting Started

All theory sessions will be conducted through PADI eLearning. We don’t do classroom teaching at the moment, if you are Vietnamese and prefer to learn in Vietnamese, please contact us.

The eLearning is sold separately by PADI, our course price is NOT INCLUDING the eLearning.

The Rescue Diver Course takes 3-4 days (plus one day for Emergency First Response course if you are not already first aid trained), involving knowledge development, confined water training and open water training. The knowledge development can be done online through PADI e-learning, before you get to the island, which means you do not have to do any classroom work during your holiday!

Requirements

PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course. 

Please note that when diving in Con Dao, we highly recommend divers to be covered via insurance for diving, and emergency evacuation due to the remoteness of the island and limited medical facilities. If this is not already covered by your travel insurance policy, we recommend DAN (Divers Alert Network) for their cover.

All those wishing to partake in PADI Courses must complete the PADI medical form before diving. Click here to view the form.

If the answer is YES to ANY of the questions, please print out the form and see a doctor BEFORE travelling to Con Dao. You must obtain medical certification that it is safe for you to dive. We cannot do this on the island. If your answers are all NO’s, that’s fine – we can complete the medical form when you get here.
