Rescue Diver Course

You already feel like a fish in the sea? You want to look after the safety and wellbeing, of not only yourself but, also, of other divers? Then, the next crucial step for you is the Rescue course which will teach you how to deal with diver stress, accident prevention, and management. “Nico Dives Cool” makes it seriously fun!

The Rescue course will teach you about diving first aid and emergency management. With this course, you will be able to help prevent problems and how to deal with underwater problems, using a variety of techniques. Missing diver procedures and how to lay out an emergency plan for a dive site will become easy for you. Your driving instructor will teach you how to respond to a panicked diver and how to surface an unconscious diver. You will practice 10 rescue exercises in both the pool and the sea. You will complete the course with different accident scenarios which will definitively build your confidence.

Considered as the third level for PADI, this program is a Specialty Program itself for SSI. This is why for SSI there is no obligation to do the Advanced Adventurer Course previously. To become level 3 SSI, you must have 24 or more logged dives and complete 4 Specialty Programs.
