Emergency First Response

This training is a prerequisite for the PADI Rescue Diver course and you can complete it during the course.

Emergency First Response courses encompass adult, child and infant CPR and first aid skills. They also incorporate Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) training and emergency oxygen use.

This course build lays rescuer confidence to provide care when faced with a medical emergency. Participants learn and practice the same patient care techniques and principles used by medical professionals, but at a lay person level.

PADI Rescue Diver

Besides recreational diving, this is probably the most important part of training for a diver.
Rescue divers learn how to take care off themselves and their buddies. Although challenging, training at this level you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature, gain a lot of confidence and have serious fun along the way.

PADI Divemaster

Take the PADI Divemaster course and do what you love to do as a career. Scuba divers look up to divemasters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others. As a divemaster, you not only get to dive a lot, but also experience the joy of seeing others have as much fun diving as you do.

The PADI Divemaster course is your first level of professional training. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills, like perfecting the effortless hover, and refine your rescue skills so you anticipate and easily solve common problems. You’ll gain dive knowledge, management and supervision abilities so you become a role model to divers everywhere.

As a PADI Divemaster, you’ll lead others as you supervise scuba diving activities and assist with diver training as they make their way through PADI certifications.
