Rp6,500,000 3days

“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe our PADI Rescue Diver course on Penida. The course develops your knowledge and skills so that you will become a complete diver – someone who can look after themselves as well as others in the water by effectively performing diver assists and rescues, managing diving accident situations and giving first aid.

The course is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver, and we think that every diver should get to the level of Rescue Diver as it makes you completely self-sufficient in terms of rescuing yourself and others.

PADI Rescue Diver Course on Penida Schedule

  • Theory

    You will arrive preferably before the course starts to register, and collect your manual for the Rescue Course (and EFR if applicable).

    EFR Course

    If you are taking the EFR then we will spend the first day on the EFR Course. There is some theory and vidoes, but it is a very practical course that teaches you how to perform First Aid on another person (another student or the instructor!), and to perform secondary care/CPR with practice on a “Little Annie” dummy.

    Rescue Course

    Through Knowledge Reviews, 10 Rescue Skills and 2 Rescue Scenarios you will learn:

    • Self rescue
    • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
    • Emergency management and equipment
    • Rescuing panicked divers
    • Rescuing unresponsive divers

    The first day of the Rescue course will start with theory – there is a DVD to watch, Knowledge Reviews to complete and the final exam. Sometimes we do this all in a day, more often we spend the morning on theory and do some pool work in the afternoon, then finish the theory on day 2.

  • Practical Rescue Skills

    Days 2 and 3 of the course are all about the practical side – you’ll learn skills in the pool and then go into the sea to practice your new abilities in open water, then put them together in rescue scenarios.

    If it’s been six months or longer since your last dive, then we strongly recommend starting with a day of fun dives before jumping straight in to rescue training.

  • finish your diving day

    You will finish off each day by reviewing what you have done with your instructor, and planning the following day.

    Beers and cocktails are also readily available after your diving!

eLearning Option

This option allows you to study the knowledge development online before you come and visit us. You will need to complete the theory before you visit us, this saves you time on your holiday and you can get started with the practical stuff right away when you arrive!

You will need to sign up for eLearning and affiliate with our store, and there is an extra fee is that is paid directly to PADI upon registration which is typically around US$200. We will also give you a small discount on your course.

When you complete everything you will get a certificate which you need to email to us or bring with you to hand to your instructor.

Why do the eLearning option?

The Rescue Course will still take 3days so why do the eLearning option?

The main reason is to maximise your dives whilst you are here. Since you do not need to do the theory whilst you are here you you can do more fun dives – one popular option is to do fun dives in the mornings and the Rescue Course in the afternoon!

Doing EFR as well?

If you need to do EFR then we can plan the Rescue & EFR over 3days:

Rescue Diver (eLearning) + EFR schedule:
Day 0 – Arrive & collect manual
Day 1 – EFR course
Day 2 – Rescue practical in the pool
Day 3 – Rescue practical on the boat
