PADI Rescue Diver Training
Rescue Diver Online does NOT replace the skill development, knowledge reviews assessment or the rescue diver exams in a live class with an instructor. You can’t learn and demonstrate diving motor-skills online. This require actual interaction with an instructor, in the water. There is sometimes a mistaken idea that PADI eLearning allows a diver to fully qualify for a padi rescue diver certification online. This is not TRUE.
PADI online learning does NOT, by itself, lead to certification. It is simply the best way to learn all the theory BEFORE YOUR RESCUE DIVER TRAINING starts. Simply get ahead with the convenience of taking the theory lessons on line and cut down or out your classroom studying.
However, the online environment is suitable for delivering background knowledge — theory, information and so on — that you apply during live training with your instructor. This will save you time during your holidays.
PADI Rescue Diver Online delivers the same material that the student gets by reading the PADI Rescue Diver Manual and watching the PADI Rescue Diver Video, in an interactive, self-paced presentation. Many students appreciate the convenience of beginning their learning online. Many also like the integration of reading-hearing-seeing. But, some people still prefer a book and a video — which remain available through the PADI system.
The PADI Rescue Diver course is designed to develop your dive knowledge and skills to effectively perform diver rescues and assists, as well as teach you to manage diving accident situations and apply first aid skills. The rescue course is very much a hands on course, with role-playing to gain the experience needed for most dive incidents.
Whether the student develops knowledge with eLearning or conventional book and video, the subsequent knowledge review, skill development and assessments with a PADI Instructor are the same.
The PADI rescue Diver program takes 3 or more days to complete and is divided into three main areas.

Administering Padi Emergency Oxygen is one of the most important aspects of first aid for decompression sickness, lung over-expansion injuries and also for many non diving issues such as strokes ect.
However, statistics also say that less than 50% of injured divers actually are administered Oxygen and those that do get Oxygen don’t get near 100% concentrations due to improper administration.
