Why Every Diver Should Be A Rescue Diver (Watch Video)

Published

on

Why Every Diver Should Be A Rescue Diver! I’ve got three reasons why every diver should take a Rescue Diver course. The world would be a better place!

Rescue Diver is mine – and a lot of my Instructor buddies’ – favorite course to teach. A well-run Rescue Diver course should be heavily practical and feature realistic scenarios. It expands your vision to include situational awareness and give you the knowledge and skills to react should an accident occur.

Think resuscitation is hard on land? Wait until you’re given rescue breaths in water whilst towing the victim! It’s a fantastic confidence booster, especially for divers who are more naturally anxious or nervous.

Thanks for watching! D.S.D.O James
