During the Open Water Course and Advanced Open Water Course you will have learnt the critical skills of becoming a safe diver. When feeling confident in the water, you might consider becoming a Rescue Diver. The aim of the course is to learn how to prevent and deal with problem situations related to diving.
During the course you will do some self-study from the Rescue Diver manual, watch videos in our class room, learn rescue skills at Yanui Beach and execute 4 accident scenarios to show your ability to act in a problem situation.
The course can be done in 3 days and after the Rescue Diver level you can start to consider becoming a diving professional and enroll into the Divemaster Course.
We offer you 2 different options for the Rescue Diver course. 1st option is done in Phuket and all the water exercises are done at Yanui Beach. In the 2nd option we include 1 daytrip to Raya Yai island so you can do some fun diving during the course as well.
