RESCUE DIVER Prevent problems, and manage them if they occur.

The PADI Rescue Diver Course with DIVE SOURCE

"Challenging" and "rewarding" best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you've already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur.

What You Learn

  • Self-rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers



To enroll in the PADI Rescue Diver course, you must be:

  • 12 years or older
  • Have a PADI Advanced Open Diver certification (or have a qualifying certification from another organization)
  • Be trained and current for first aid and CPR within the previous two years (Ask your instructor about Emergency First Response CPR and first aid courses).

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all your basic scuba gear including a dive computer and accessories. We give all our students 50% off rental gear if required. 

The Learning Materials You Need

The PADI Rescue Diver crewpak includes all materials required to complete the PADI Rescue Diver course – including a pocket mask. You'll learn how to think like a rescue diver and preview skills you'll practice with your PADI Instructor.

Students have to complete the eLearning online at home, at their own pace, prior to the start of the course, after receiving their access code from Dive Source by email. 

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact DIVE SOURCE.

Your Next Adventure

After completing CPR and first aid and the PADI Rescue Diver course, you should take the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider course Together, these three courses round out your ability to handle scuba diver emergencies.
