This course is different from the other courses as the focus is emergency rescue for yourself and other divers. You will become a valuable member of any dive team as you will have experience with emergency first aide and secondary care, diver stress management, emergency equipment maintenance, and rescue of panicked and unresponsive divers. This course is a challenging way to spend three days with our professional dive instructors.
Once you complete this course, you will hold an invaluable certification that makes you a better prepared and respected diver, ready to take on what can go wrong in the underwater world. This is also a prerequisite for the divemaster certification, the first level of professional diver!
