To what depths do you want to take your adventure? No matter what your goal, the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course gives you the confidence, skills and experience for a whole new level of underwater exploration; all under the guidance of a PADI Pro.

Plus the Advanced Open Water Divers course will take you one step closer to Master Scuba Diver – the ultimate recreational diving rating.

Rescue Diver/Emergency First Response

"Challenging and rewarding" best describes the PADI Rescue Diver course. This course expands your knowledge and experience level: Rescue Divers learn to look beyond their buddy and consider the safety and well being of fellow divers. Although this course is challenging, it is a rewarding way to build your confidence. Rescue Diver training prepares you to prevent problems and if necessary, manage dive emergencies. The course is designed to be demanding, though realistic in its conduct, content and approach. Although the nature and content of rescue training is serious, many divers say this is the most valuable course they have ever taken.

Who is eligible to take the course?

If you are a certified Advance Open Water diver, 15 years of age or older, you are ready for the course. A certified Junior Advance Open Water diver 12 to 14 years old will receive a Junior Rescue Divers certification card.

EFR Primary and Secondary Care training within 24 months. Training may be completed along with rescue dive course.
