PADI RESCUE course                            H O M E

Challenging and confidence building


This course is designed to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively perform rescues and to manage diving-accident situations. It primarily serves the personal safety and secondly the assistance for other divers. You’ll find the course challenging, enjoyable, social and highly interesting, although the nature and context in which such training may be used is quite serious. The main objective of this course is to prevent the need for use of rescue skills. A good diver does not only solve problems, he prevents them in the first place!
