Could you help?
The PADI Rescue Diver course helps divers to look beyond themselves and to start thinking about the welfare and care of others. The course will teach divers with more experience about techniques in preventing problems and awareness of potential dangers before, during and after a dive. This is a rigorous and rewarding course which is practically based.
This course is run in conjunction with the Emergency First Response course. If you do not already have a valid CPR/First Aid course you will need to attend an EFR course at our centre, prior to completion of the Rescue Diver course.
The & Rescue & EFR Course here at London School of Diving is split over 3 days. The first day is a Saturday based at our Dive Centre in Chiswick. You will watch a DVD, sit your exams and practice your CPR skills which involves a few lifesaving scenarios.
The second 2 days take place the following weekend and for this we head out to Wraysbury diving lake which is a purpose built diver training lake around 20 minutes drive from the dive centre. Here you will learn the practical rescue skills including transferring the first aid skills you learnt on the EFR course to diving situations.
For the academic work we register you for the online Rescue eLearning. You will need to read and complete the sections. Please make sure this is completed before your dives and you bring with you your e-record.
