Rescue Course

During the 2 – 3 days of the rescue course specialty, you will study additional theory beyond what you have learned in your previous diving courses on Koh Tao. This course will develop your diving knowledge and practice rescue skills from the open water course, in addition, you will be responding to diver emergencies, self-rescue techniques, and recognizing a rescue situation. Moreover, it will include accident management, emergency care, and first aid for common aquatic life injuries. Not to mention problem-solving on the surface and underwater.

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.

How Does The Rescue Course Work?

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. It is a lot of work but it is probably the best course you will do. Guaranteed you will be exhausted afterward but you will have a huge smile on your face. 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.
