A unique course! Perhaps the best PADI program!
This course is something special because it teaches you to become a safe diver and to focus on the safety and welfare of other divers. It shows you how to recognize and prevent a diving accident, and how to respond if one occurs. The course emphasizes flexibility and adapting the diver to personal and environmental conditions.
The word "RESCUE" sounds to you a tiring and exhausting course. May be you think it is for "strong" persons. Although we will push you a little, and be training you new skills, the course has a flexible approach and is tailored to show how any person of any size can organise and facilitate the rescue of anyone. The PADI Rescue Course makes this serious subject of accident prevention enjoyable and rewarding.
