In just a few days, learn how to become more self-sufficient as a diver and also how to help other divers in a problem situation. Note: We only offer a three day option for this course. With many years of teaching this course we believe that an absolute minimum of three days is needed to train students properly in rescue diver techniques.
To take this course all students must have the following:
With a few simple steps you can become a PADI Rescue diver in Phuket.
|Self-Study||Before the course starts, watch a video online on rescue techniques and complete some questionnaires.|
|Day One||Start by spending the first hour or so completing the study sections by the poolside. This then leaves almost a whole day to practice 10 main dive skills in the pool to prepare you thoroughly for future Rescue scenarions. Skills include: how to deal with a panicking diver, search for a missing diver, surfacing an unconscious diver and giving in-water rescue breaths.|
|Day Two||Continue to practice rescue techniques but this time either at Kata Beach (if conditions are OK) or from a day trip diving boat. During the day repeat all the skills learnt the previous day but this time in the open water.|
|Day Three||Either at the beach or on a day trip diving boat, expect the unexpected with some final rescue scenarios to test the skills you learnt over the previous two days.|
Nobody wants to sit in a classroom while on holiday if it can be avoided. This is why, as soon as online learning became available, we decided to offer our students the chance to complete most of the study in advance of their course. This also gives us almost a whole day in the swimming pool to help you get used to being underwater and to teach you necessary dive techniques rather than spending half of it behind a desk. This results in a more comfortable, safer and fun experience for our guests at no extra charge.
As many skills involve swimming towards and towing of rescue victims, all students should have good swimming ability and a reasonable level of physical fitness.
With so many choices of who to dive with in Phuket, why choose us? Here are three good reasons:

There are a number of different diving organisations offering dive certifications but the PADI training is undoubtedly the best. Study techniques include visual (watching a video), book learning (from the manual) and practical application. The study materials and course programs are clear and easy to follow which is why, although you can find cheaper courses elsewhere, PADI is by far the largest dive organisation in the world!
