Rescue Course
December 16 & 17

December 16, 2017 - December 17, 2017


Do you want to become a better, more confident and prepared diver? Then join our PADI Rescue Diver course! 

Now that you are an Advanced diver, it’s time to take the next step. The Rescue  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 challenging, it is a rewarding way to build your confidence. Rescue Diver training will prepare you to prevent problems and, if necessary, manage dive emergencies. Many divers say this is the best course they’ve ever taken!
The best Rescue Divers not only know how to deal with emergency situations, but how to anticipate and prevent them. Prevention is key!  During this course, you will learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
Did you know that having a Rescue certification opens the door to more diving opportunities? For example, to become a volunteer diver at the Long Beach Aquarium, you need to have your rescue certification. Also, if you are planning to become a dive professional, rescue is your final step before Divemaster!
