Rescue Diver Koh Lanta, Thailand

The PADI Rescue Diver Course Koh Lanta is the most valuable course you will take!

Scuba divers describe the Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the Rescue Diver Course Koh Lanta, you learn to become a better buddy by practise problem-solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is fun – it’s serious but also fun. As in all our courses, it still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

You will also learn more about how diving affects us physiologically, and what is actually going on in our body when we are down there. You will spend the first two days of the course in the classroom and on the beach learning and practise the Rescue skills. The final day of the Rescue Diver Course on Koh Lanta is out on the boat when you put everything together and deal with a number of Rescue Scenarios.

The PADI Rescue Diver Koh Lanta prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:

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

If you are planning on becoming a professional diver, you would need to first complete the Rescue Diver course before starting a PADI Divemaster course.

Again if you are short on time on your holiday you can complete the classroom theory on line in the PADI elearning option.
