PADI Rescue Diver Course

Gift Vouchers Available

The PADI Rescue Diver course is one of the most popular and enjoyable courses we offer. The aim of the PADI Rescue Diver course is to make you a better and safer, diver and buddy. The emphasis is on avoiding problems, but we also practise the correct response to a variety of possible scuba diving emergencies.

We also offer the PADI Rescue Referral option with overseas completion where you complete the theory and pool skills here in London and the open water scenarios on your own holiday abroad or on holiday with Dive Wimbledon.

  • Personal PADI Rescue Diver manual and dive slate or Elearning included.
  • 5 theory sessions
  • A pool session where you complete 10 scuba diving rescue exercises followed by 1 day completing 2 PADI Open Water Rescue scenarios. Alternatively the course can take place over one weekend.
  • Complete standard PADI paperwork and medical statement
  • Read the PADI Rescue Diver manual or Elearning option
  • Watch the PADI Rescue Diver DVD
  • Complete Knowledge Reviews
