Rescue Diver

This course is one of the most challenging yet rewarding courses that is offered by 3Willys Diving, Phuket. The PADI Rescue Diver course is the penultimate step before gaining Master Scuba Diver certifications.

This course teaches you, as a scuba diver, how to identify and prevent accidents happening when carrying out a dive. This course allows you to understand from a real life perspective, with simulated scenarios to help teach you how to handle these problems if they were to occur. This course should really boost your confidence with Diving and is the next vital step before achieving your Dive Master certification.


You and your Instructor will start the Rescue Diver theory by watching a DVD and completing the Knowledge Reviews of your PADI Rescue Diver manual.


The five areas that you will cover are:
  • Self rescue
  • Recognising and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers
You will also learn some new rescue diving skills that you will put into practice in the swimming pool on the next day.




This morning, you will finish off any of the Rescue Diver theory and complete the multiple-choice Final Exam. Now you should be thinking like a Rescue Diver- that is someone who is aware of their diving surroundings and can make good judgement calls in emergency situations. With the help of your instructor, you will learn to read the signs in yourself and others of potential problems and learn the skills necessary to remediate.

Time to practice to those life-saving rescue skills! The swimming pool is the perfect place for you to hone your rescue skills in a controlled environment before applying them to the open water. You, your Instructor and your classmates will take-on different roles (rescuer, assistant and victim) to make it as life-like as possible. You'll be put through your paces now so that if you're ever faced with a real rescue situation, you'll be better prepared to deal with it. The day normally finishes around 5pm, but if you require more time to practice in the swimming pool or need some more time in the classroom then this is not a problem.
