Learn Scuba With Paul
The majority of the skills practiced during the Rescue class are performed on the surface. The most time consuming and difficult skill to master during the course is performing a full rescue on another diver. Tigertail is the ideal location for the Rescue Diver class because students have a lot more time to practice this most important skill.
One day of the Rescue Diver class will take place at Tigertail Lake where students will learn and practice self rescue, managing stressed or panicked divers, and perform a full rescue for an unresponsive diver at the surface. An additional day will be spent on a 2 tank boat charter where divers will practice leading an emergency scenario and bringing an unresponsive diver to the surface.
Requirements to enter the Padi Rescue Diver class include: 12 years old, Advanced Open Water certified, at least 20 logged dives, and completion of Emergency First Response CPR class or other qualifying CPR training within the last 24 months.
Rescue Diver class duration is 2 or 3 days depending on how divers choose to complete phase 1. Similar to the Open Water class structure, Phase 1 Knowledge development can be completing using E-Learning directly with Padi or in a traditional classroom format with an instructor.
The Padi Rescue Diver class is considered one of the most rewarding Classes by many scuba divers. In this course divers will really learn how to start attending to other divers and managing emergency diving situations. I highly recommend this scuba diving class for any parent planning to dive with their kids.
