The Rescue Diver course is a pivotal step in expanding a diver's knowledge and experience. Rescue Divers learn to look beyond themselves to consider the safety and well-being of other divers. Rescue Driver training expands the basic problem prevention and accident management skills divers learn beginning with the Open Water Diver course. At the Rescue Diver level, divers are ready to learn and manage more complex dive emergencies and to apply direct intervention techniques to assist others in an emergency.
The class includes the Rescue Diver Manual, knowledge quest, instructor and certification fees, open water training at the local quarry, and full SCUBA Unit (BCD, regulators, tanks, and weights).
The Diver's Alert Network is key in equipping all divers, from recreational to professional, with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively handle a multitude of First Aid or Diving Emergencies. These courses will equip you with the necessary training to manage, delegate and execute emergency procedures should an accident occur. Many dive locations around the world are remote with little or delayed access to professional medical facilities and treatment. By gaining the experience and confidence to handle an array of emergency scenarios, you as the first responder will play a critical role in bridging the gap between the onsite emergency and treatment from medical personal. Upon completion of a DAN course, your knowledge fosters a more safe, competent, and reliable dive environment for not only you but the people around you as well. These are must-have certifications for the traveler, local diver, or professional.
