PADI Rescue Diver Certification Course

Starting at $650.00

The Rescue Diver Course is designed to develop the necessary knowledge and skills for individuals to perform diver rescues and assists, manage diving accident situations, render proper first aid, and qualify for Divemaster training. Rescue Diver training is an important step in expanding a diver’s knowledge beyond a purely recreational level. Most divers say this is their favorite PADI course because of the amount of time in the water doing practical application relative to the book work.


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 will apply your knowledge and skills. Topics Include:

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


            This Course is conducted over 2 days and includes:

              • 1 online eLearning
              • 1 pool day (9:45am-5:30pm)
              • 1 Open water day at local Southern California beaches.

              *If local off-shore conditions are not optimal we may perform the open-water portion off of our diver excursion boat or on Catalina Island. Catalina Express and Dive Boat tickets are additional and not included in class tuition.
