First Aid and Rescue Course
What Happens In The Rescue Course?
Develop your diving knowledge, and practice rescue skills in shallow water that will include responding to diver emergencies, and self-rescue techniques. In addition to recognizing rescue situations. Think before you act. Furthermore, you learn accident management, emergency care, and first aid for common aquatic life injuries, problem-solving on the surface and underwater. Responding to equipment problems and first aid for diving-related injuries.
You will be taught to respond to equipment problems and to give first aid for diving-related injuries. As well as open water you will need to have a valid First Aid certificate as a prerequisite. But don’t worry if you don’t we can also teach this prior to the Rescue course. The React Right course only takes 1 day.
As well as a shallow water session there are 3 open water dives where you will practice new skills in diving scenarios, such as problems with equipment, stressed diver, missing diver, and much more.
We also include an oxygen provider to cover the theory and practical side of administering O2 to an injured diver. If you are thinking of becoming a dive professional it is an essential course to take.
The last day is putting the skills you have learned into practice through diving scenarios. Sounds like a lot of work doesn’t it and it is but it is the best course you will do. Guaranteed you will be exhausted afterward but you will have a huge smile on your face.
