BUILD YOUR CONFIDENCE AND LEARN TO HANDLE EMERGENCIES
PADI Rescue Diver course teaches risk management, how to recognise potential hazards and how a diver can really help someone in need.
THIS COURSE REQUIRES A FIRST AID CERTIFICATION! If you do not have one you can get it through us by taking a 1 day first aid course. This will give you an internationally recognised First Aid certification. The price is 4 500 THB.
The course starts with theory. You get to watch a DVD or read the text book. Then we head off to the swimming pool and start the practical sessions where you will learn rescue skills: what to look for and how to respond.
-Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
-Emergency management and equipment
-Rescuing panicked divers
-Rescuing unresponsive divers
On the second day we go out to the sea and put your new skills in the test with different kind of scenarios. This day might feel stressful and you will need to have average physical fitness for this course.
PADI Rescue Diver certification is necessary before you can start Divemaster training.
Our price includes lunch every day, hotel transfers from Chalong, Kata, Karon and Patong areas, study materials, certification fees, diving equipment during the course and a NOSTE t-shirt!
