As a PADI Rescue Diver you learn some key stills through the training sessions where you practice the skills and also complete some rescue scenarios, the main skills which I will learn are
- Self Rescue
- Recognise and manage stress in other divers
- Emergency management and equipment
- Rescuing panicked divers
- Rescuing unresponsive divers
As part of the course I attended yesterday the class room session which went other the Knowledge Reviews for the course as well as a small exam at the end to ensure that you had understood the key areas of the course.
This was a very enjoyable session and we have a group of 7 students including myself completing the course.
As part of the course the next stage will be pool sessions as well as open water sessions so watch this space as I talk more about the course and how I am doing / how it has gone!
