What does Rescue Diver have to do with a corny rescue movie? Our Rescue Diver program will be better than any corny rescue movie you watch and more realistic.
  • Do you go diving on a regular basis?
  • Do you frequently go diving with other people?
  • Would you like to be able to help others if they are in distress while diving?
  • Would you know what to do and feel ready to assist?
If you answered yes to the previous questions, you should consider training to be a rescue diver. Training to be a rescue diver will allow you to have the skills to respond to an emergency when you are diving. It will help you be prepared in the water. It will also increase your skills and make you a better diver overall. Plus, it is always fun to connect with and meet other divers who are pursuing the same skills in a rescue diving class. 
The best rescue diving classes will also provide you with Emergency First Response (EFR) training in First Aid & CPR. Not all rescue diving classes offer EFR training. Make sure you sign up for a rescue diving class which provides EFR training. This training combined with the other training you will receive will make you a more prepared diver. 
I know you may be thinking you don't need to take a class that provides Emergency First Response (EFR) training in First Aid & CPR. In your mind you are picturing a class that is similar to every First Aid and CPR class you have ever taken. You can picture the corny movies that you have to watch for hours in over to obtain a traditional First Aid & CPR certification. 
However, Emergency First Response (EFR) training will be nothing like the corny movies you associate with typical First Aid & CPR certification. Excellent EFR training will be fun and hands-on. It will provide you with the unique opportunity to practice and learn how to provide CPR and First Aid on land and in the pool and ocean environment. The time you spend on EFR training will whiz by. It's a fun and engaging training that will also make you more prepared in the water. 
Taking a rescue diver course will equip you with many skills. First, you will learn how not to become a second victim in an emergency diving situation. You will be trained in how to visual asses a situation and determine what rescue equipment is needed to help the distressed diver. Rescue diver training will give you the skills to effectively respond while not endangering yourself. You will feel comfortable and confident in assessing a situation you find yourself in while diving. 
By the time you complete your rescue diver course you will know the proper procedures and responses to help a distressed diver at the surface, underwater and a tired diver. You will know how to surface an unconscious diver. You will be trained in missing diver procedures and will know the proper response from shore or a boat that is to be provided in a diving emergency. Not only will you be provided with this information, you will be able to practice these practical and realistic skills with dive safety equipment both on dry land and in the water. 
Training in rescue diving will also make you a better diver even in non emergency situations. You will learn more in depth about the equipment that you use on dives and how to maintain your equipment and respond to problems with your equipment. When you go diving with your friends and family, not only will they can count on you more but you'll feel more prepared with safety in mind. 
Rescue training will also teach you how to engage in a self rescue. If you are injured and no one else is a trained rescue diver, you will be able to effectively assist yourself. You no longer have to wonder about who is trained in rescue diving when you go out. You can be confident that you posses the skills and have had the practice to not only help others, but help yourself in an emergency situation. 
If you want to further your diving certification, a rescue diving certification is one of the required stepping stones to becoming a DAN - Diving First Aid for Professional Divers, Master Scuba Diver, Divemaster and Instructor. Taking a rescue diving course will make you a more knowledgeable and safe diver and can advance your diving certifications.
