Rescue Diver

  • Classes

Rescue Diver is often described as a diver’s favorite certification. The Rescue Diver 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.

The PADI Rescue Diver course is typically only taught in open water. Weaver’s adds a pool session schedule to ensure you are well trained prior to entering the open water portion of the course.

You can enroll in the Rescue Diver Course as a certified Open Water Diver (or have a qualifying certification from another training organization) and participate in the Rescue Diver knowledge development and rescue training sessions (in confined water only) while working on your Advanced Open Water Diver certification. To participate in the rescue training sessions in open water you must be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another training organization. Divers must have successfully completed a sanctioned CPR program within the past 24 months. The Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) courses meet these requirements.
