The PADI Rescue Diver certification is rewarding and a crucial step forward in scuba diver training. Earning your Rescue Diver certification with Banyan Tree Divers will build confidence in your diving skills, while bringing you closer to achieving professional status. Banyan Tree Divers conducts this course over 2 days, practicing multiple dive scenarios per day. We advise our divers to complete all Knowledge Review questions beforehand.
By completing the Rescue Diver certification you will learn how to manage different scuba emergencies through dive theory, training exercises, and rescue scenarios. Dive theory is comprised of 2 academic sessions, coupled with independent study. The 10 in-water training exercises are practiced on the surface and underwater. We like to practice these training exercises repeatedly, until our divers feel relaxed and confident with every skill.
Ultimately, each of the 10 exercises are evaluated during 2 comprehensive rescue scenarios. Banyan Tree Divers’ assistants will help to create realistic emergency events during your rescue scenarios, making your experience true to life and memorable.
Mornings are the best time for good visibility underwater, so the course begins at 9am. The exact dive site is chosen the afternoon before our diving day and emailed to all guests. During the PADI Rescue couse we usually finish each day around 3pm.
