Rescue Diver and EFR


The Rescue Diver course is by far the most challenging but also the most rewarding of the Padi qualifications. Every diver who embarks on the Padi Rescue Diver course would definitely agree it’s tough but also fun!

Minimum age: 15+ (12+ for Juniors)

Must hold Padi Advanced Open Water certification (Or equivalent) with a minimum of 20 logged dives

Must have completed a recognised CPR program or the Padi Emergency First response course within the last 24 Months

Duration: 3-4 days

This course takes your diving skills to another level and your instruction becomes a lot more serious as you now learn how to safely plan, organise and execute your diving activities and greatly increase your self sufficiency. The course focuses on teaching you how to assess diving conditions, the divers around you and how to prevent potential diving accidents and emergencies. The Padi Rescue Diver will teach you how to organise and carry out life saving emergency first aid in the field.
