PADI Scuba Diver Specialty Course - Emergency First Response

The PADI Rescue Diver course has been touted as one of the most challenging , yet fulfilling and rewarding course according to scuba divers whom have been through this course. You will learn prevention and management of problems as well as becoming more confident in your overall abilities as a scuba diver. Problem solving skills will become second nature and naturally you become a better dive buddy to those around you. Though challenging, it is a fun course that allows you to constantly engage your dive buddy and instructor while learning at the same time.

Prior to the course, you also need to first enroll for Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training while attending the Rescue Diver course. At the same time, you may choose to do the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider specialty diver course concurrently with the Rescue Diver Course.

PADI (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and above may enroll in a Rescue Diver course upon completion of the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive.


Apart from your usual basic scuba equipment, you will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation. You will also work with floats, oxygen units, and marker buoys during the exercises. Our PADI Instructor will explain to you any additional equipment or gear e.g. first aid kit that may be required useful throughout your diving advetures.
