Rescue Diver Course



The PADI Rescue Diver course enhances your diving skills and prepares you to handle emergency situations. It is a vital step in advancing your diving abilities, building on your previous training to help you anticipate and manage potential issues both underwater and at the surface.


The academic portion of the course includes self-study through the PADI eLearning platform, covering various topics such as emergency management, equipment issues, and the psychology of rescue. You'll learn through reading materials, videos, and quizzes that test your understanding of these critical subjects.

Practical Application

During the in-water training sessions, you'll practice a variety of rescue exercises. These exercises are designed to teach you how to respond to different scenarios, such as assisting panicked divers, dealing with unresponsive divers, and conducting effective searches and rescues. The hands-on practice is crucial for building confidence and competence in real-life situations.


For the Rescue Diver course, you'll use your basic scuba gear along with additional equipment such as a pocket mask to practice in-water rescue breathing. The course might also include other specialized gear depending on the specific rescue scenarios covered.

Getting Started

To enroll in the PADI Rescue Diver course, you need to be at least 12 years old and have completed the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification or an equivalent certification from another training organization. You also need to have current CPR and First Aid training within the last 24 months, which can be completed through the PADI Emergency First Response (EFR) course.
