Rescue Diver May 7
May 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
May 7 and 8, 2022
Do you know what to do in an emergency? Could you render aid to your buddy, another diver, or yourself? Learn how to recognize distressed divers, what to do in an emergency, and how to keep yourself safe in the process. The subject matter is serious, but this is an incredibly fun course that develops important skills.
Divers often say this is one of the most challenging—and fun—specialty courses.
Students will learn how stress, physical conditioning, and equipment, can lead to diving accidents. They will learn and demonstrate lifesaving techniques including self-rescue, diver assists, surface and underwater rescues, towing methods, and boat and shore exit techniques. Students will also learn how to get help, how to report an accident, and related liability concerns. The academic portion of the course is online, and students must present proof of completion to the instructor on the first day.
