PADI Rescue Diver

Certification Course The next level in dive certification


Work with 2620 Scuba and 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.

The Rescue Dive Course is considered as the next level in training after your Advanced Diver certification. It is designed to teach you about diver stress in conjunction with accident prevention.

Scuba divers describe the 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. This applies as much to yourself through learning self rescue methods, as to your fellow divers.

Duing your Rescue Course you will out of your comfort zone when realising how quickly diver accidents can happen. On completion of your Rescue course you will feel more comfortable in a rescue scenario and spotting potential hazards.

This course isn't just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
