Stress & Rescue

The words used to describe the PADI Rescue Diver course most often are “challenging” and “rewarding”.

Let’s focus on yourself first. Become confident to handle emergency situations without putting yourself at risk.

Recognize & manage stress in other divers, practice emergency management, rescuing panicked & unresponsive divers, at the surface and underwater.
