Divers and instructors consistently rate this as the most challenging, rewarding and fun course they have taken part in! With your instructor you'll learn a variety of rescue techniques as well as how to identify and manage problems before they occur.

What Will You Learn?
  • Self Rescue
  • Emergency management and use of specialised equipment
  • Recognising and managing stress in other divers
  • Rescuing panicked divers, unresponsive divers and a variety of other techniques
How does it work?

First you'll have some theory work to complete at home, through PADI's eLearning platform before coming in to our Hamilton store one evening to discuss what you've learned with your instructor, complete a review to show your knowledge and prepare for the practical element of the course.

Then over a weekend you will receive your practical training. With demonstrations from your instructor you'll learn every stage of a variety of rescue scenarios before putting all your new skills together with challenging practical exercises!
