PADI Rescue Diver Cozumel

The PADI Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills.

The rescue diver course is a crucial step in a diver’s skill development. For the first time in their diving education, rescue divers learn to look beyond themselves to consider the safety and well-being of other divers, which is why being a competent rescue diver is a prerequisite for all leadership-level training within the structure of most major diving agencies. Even if a diver never intends to pursue a professional diving career, the rescue diver course is still invaluable.

Knowledge Development

PADI Rescue Diver candidates must complete five knowledge development sections. Each section examines a different area of rescue knowledge, from recognizing stressed diver behaviors and how to address a potential incident before it happens, to assessing different types of pressure-related injuries and administering first aid.
There is also a final exam which students must complete with a passing score.
In addition, candidates must prepare an emergency assistance plan that they could realistically use in a real-life scenario. The emergency assistance plan should include guidance and instructions to steer rescue procedures at a dive site in the event of an emergency.

If you prefer to save time to enjoy Cozumel, you can complete the academic part online in advance with the PADI Rescue Diver eLearning program.

Confined Water Training Dive

Following a self-rescue review, the instructor will introduce and demonstrate key rescue skills as appropriate. Divers then practice procedures until they are comfortable and meet the required performance requirements. Skills include:
* Tired diver
* Panicked diver
* Response from shore, boat or dock (responsive diver)
* Distressed diver underwater
* Missing diver
* Surfacing the unresponsive diver
* Unresponsive diver at the surface
* Exiting the unresponsive diver
* First aid for pressure-related injuries and oxygen administration
* Response from shore/boat to unresponsive diver at the surface
Students repeat each skill until they achieve mastery. All rescue exercises take place in open water, although many instructors introduce skill-training initially in a pool where no visibility, current, waves or temperature issues may hinder learning.

 

Rescue Scenarios

Having learned and mastered all of the key rescue skills during the confined training dive, candidates must successfully respond to at least two rescue scenarios.
Within the bounds of what is reasonable and safe in the course environment, the scenarios will be as realistic as possible.
The scenarios are meant to allow the candidates to piece together all their newly acquired rescue-diver knowledge and respond to a scenario as if it is real, demonstrating their prowess. Instructor guidance is minimal.

On your first day, you will have a review session with your instructor as a review of what you have learned during your eLearning sessions.
