PADI Rescue Diver (eLearning)



Who should take this course?

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have PADI Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course. Your instructor may also offer the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider specialty diver course at the same time.


What will you learn?

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 put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:

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

 

What scuba gear will you use?

You’ll use your basic scuba equipment and will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation. During exercises, you’ll work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and perhaps CPR mannequins. Your PADI Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit, which will be useful throughout your diving career.

Rental gear is not included in the course fee. If you already have your own gear we recommend bringing it by the store for your instructor to check over with you to make sure it is all in good working order. 


Next Steps

Visit a Scuba Shack location to sign up. At this time, you will learn about upcoming courses, receive your student materials, and get important paperwork to complete. We will also make copies of your certification card at this time. This is also a great time to purchase or reserve rental scuba gear for your course.  

Please note that in order to receive your Rescue Diver Certification, you must also hold an Emergency First Response Certification. For questions about this certification, please contact a Scuba Shack team member.


The rescue dives and scenarios can be completed in one weekend with Scuba Shack at Pennyroyal Scuba Center in Hopkinsville, KY. Rental gear and Pennyroyal diver fees are not included in the course. Rescue students are responsible for registering themselves as divers with Pennyroyal Scuba Center.
