Rescue Diver

Rewarding and fun - that best describes the PADI Rescue Diver course. This course will expand your knowledge and experience level: Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves and consider the safety and well being of other divers. Although this course is serious, it is an enjoyable way to build your confidence.

What do I need to start?

You need to be an Advanced Open Water Diver (or an Adventure Diver who has completed the navigation dive) to enroll in the Rescue Diver Course.
You also need to have completed a sanctioned CPR & 1st Aid course such as EFR (Emergency First Response) within 24 months.
Just like with your other PADI courses, you need to be able to answer NO to all questions on the PADI Medical statement (form in english here), if any answers on the form are YES then your doctor needs to approve you for diving before you can start the course.
Minimum age: 15 years old

How long will it take?

The Rescue Course takes 3 days to complete. One day of classroom theory and two days in-water (10 rescue exercises & 2 rescue scenarios).
If you also need to add on the EFR course then add 1 day (4 days in total).


Why PADI Rescue Diver?

Do you feel ready to take your skills to the next level? Yes! Then Rescue Diver is for you! Most rescue divers say that their Rescue Diver course was their most memorable and challenging course, but also their most fun!

With Rescue Diver you ensure your skills in self-rescue first and then learn step by step to help others in emergency situations... Whether that's a tired buddy after running in to an unexpected current or a full on search for a missing diver, the Rescue Diver course will guide you through these scenarios step by step.

Rescue Diver is also essential if you're planning on becoming a dive professional, as both Divemaster and Instructor training reviews the important rescue skills that you will learn in this course.

How Does The Course Schedule Look?

The course will take three days if you're already CPR & 1st Aid certified. We spend the first day in the classroom looking at the theory - There are 5 sections to the DVD, corresponding to knowledge reviews in your manual. The you will review knowledge reviews with your instructor and then take the multiple choice exam. You may also have some time to work on your emergency action plan and walk through some search patterns for a missing diver!

Days 2 and 3 of the course are all about the practical side - You'll learn skills in the pool and then go on to the boat for testing your skills in open water.

If it's been six months or longer since your last dive, then we strongly recommend starting with a day of fun dives before jumping straight in to rescue training.

Rescue Diver course schedule:
Day 1 - Arrive & collect manual
Day 2 - Rescue Theory
Day 3 - Rescue practical in the pool
Day 4 - Rescue practical on the boat

If you're also doing EFR with us then the schedule will look like this:
Day 1 - Arrive & collect manual
Day 2 - EFR course

Emergency First Response

Emergency First Response (EFR) is the fastest-growing international CPR, Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) and First Aid training organization. Dedicated to training the lay rescuer, EFR courses encompasses adult, child and infant CPR skills, provides AED and First Aid training, and feature an outstanding First Aid at Work component. Many divers take the Emergency First Response courses to meet program prerequisites, such as PADI Rescue Diver, or as preparation for becoming a PADI Divemaster. However, most have also found the EFR program to be important in every day life. They have taken a significant step in emergency preparedness, and feel confident that they can provide care should an emergency situation arise.

What will I do?

The course incorporates independent study to prepare you for a classroom and hands-on skill development session with your instructor. You will learn the same patient care techniques used by medical professionals, but at a lay person level.

What do I need to start?

  • No dive certification required
  • No minimum age requirements

How long will it take?

Depending on the amount of independent study and the class size, the Primary Care and Secondary Care courses may be completed in as little as four hours to six hours

You will watch a DVD and then review the answers to your knowledge reviews with your instructor before moving on to the practical training. Your practical training takes you through several scenarios for both Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary care (1st Aid). Once you're comfortable with all of the skills there is a multiple choice exam.

What's the cost?

The 1 day EFR Primary & Secondary Care course costs Rp 1,900,000.

If you're adding it on to Rescue Diver then check out our awesome packages which combine both courses!
