Training Insights… Rescue Diver Part 7: What is a Rescue Diver?

By the end of the PADI Rescue Diver course your students will have mastered all the skills and knowledge in the course, but they will not be perfect. Divers should understand that following the guidelines and being willing to try are more important than being technically perfect.

Rescue Divers are divers that have mastered personal skills, buddy skills and have been introduced to rescue management skills. These divers are ideal to move onto a Master Scuba Diver, Divemaster or TecRec course. Don’t try to force them, but do chat to them, emphasise the value of the skills they have and ask them where they would like to go next.
