PADI Rescue Diver
The PADI Rescue Diver course will enhance your ability to recognize problems in good time and to act properly during stressful situations so that a small emergency does not become a serious danger. The main focus is on preventing and dealing with dangerous situations as well as self-rescue techniques. All this helps you to better deal with typical diving problems, increases your self confidence in your diving skills and makes you a better and more careful dive buddy.
The first day includes swimming pool training and theories, which give you basic knowledge, Eg dealing with a diver in panic or bringing to the surface an unconscious diver, as well as techniques for behavior in situations with little air.
