Learn on a shipwreck

The famous USAT Liberty wreck is only 15mins from our dive center in Amed, Bali. It is a wreck dive for every diver level since the wreck starts at about 5m and goes down to 30+m.
The wreck also offers other nearby dive sites such Coral Garden and Drop-off, these sites are great for both macro and also for seeing larger fish like trivially and snappers along with the few turtles that frequently visit the wreck and surrounding area.

Get your PADI scuba certification

“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. 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 (or equivalent) certification is also a prerequisite for all PADI Divemaster and Instructor programs.

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

The theory part of the course is covered by the course manual and video, and the practical part of the course consists of 10 Rescue Skills and 2 Rescue Scenarios. The PADI Rescue Diver course can be done as a 4/5 day course, and we normally include a couple of fun dives for free as part of the course. You can also take the Rescue Diver course with the eLearning option, in this case the course will only take 2 days.

To enrol in the PADI Rescue Diver course, you must:

  • Be 12 years or older
  • Have a PADI Adventure Diver certification (or Advanced Open Water), or have a qualifying certification from another organization
  • Be trained and current for first aid and CPR within the previous two years (Ask your TGI instructor about Emergency First Response CPR and first aid courses)

We can run the PADI EFR course for you at the start of your course if this is needed, it is a 1-day non-diving course so it is easy to schedule with your Rescue Diver course.

The Fun Part
The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.

The Scuba Gear You Will Use
You will use all your basic scuba gear including a dive computer and accessories like pocket mask, first aid kit, Oxygen kit.

The Learning Materials You Will Need
The PADI Rescue Diver crewpak includes all materials required to complete the PADI Rescue Diver course – including a pocket mask. You’ll learn how to think like a rescue diver and preview skills you’ll practice with your instructor. Once your Rescue Diver course is complete, you will be able to use your Rescue Manual as a reference text to refresh your dive safety skills as needed. This toolbox of knowledge and technique will give you the expertise to handle almost any emergency situation.

Your Next Adventure

After completing CPR and first aid and the PADI Rescue Diver course, you will be allowed to become a PADI member by joining the Professional levels, starting with the Divemaster Course.


Emergency First Response &
Master Scuba Diver


One of the pre-requisites for the PADI Rescue Corse is to be trained for first aid and CPR within the previous two years. If you do not have this then we can provide the Emergency First Response Course course over 1-day course before you start your PADI Rescue Diver Course with us.

Emergency First Response is one of the foremost international CPR and first aid training companies in the world, and its Emergency First Response course gives you the confidence to respond to medical emergencies — not just in the diving world, but in your every day world with your family, friends, neighbours and co-workers too.


  • CPR courses for adults, children and infants
  • First aid for adults, children and infants
  • Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training

If you already hold First Aid & CPR training certificate issued within the last two years, then you will not need to complete the EFR training, but we do recommend a refresher.

The MSD rating is the highest PADI non-professional rating for scuba divers. For those who want to go into the dive business to work then the divemaster course should be the first level to aim for. However, for those who just want to have fun and want to extend their knowledge and experience in their hobby, then the MSD is the level to aim for.

We don’t like crowds so we limit our class sizes to a maximum of four. We also do not schedule courses but run them on demand, and this means that courses are frequently run with 1 or 2 students. This means that you will more attention from your instructor, and more chances to learn and practice diving skills.

Amazing. Loved the flexibility of learning at my own pace.

Ultimate Flexibility with Rescue Diver Course with eLearning

Doing the Rescue Diver Course with eLearning means that all the theory can be done online at before you get here, this allows you to take your time to do the theory at home (days or weeks or months), and you will get more time for fun diving/relaxing when you are here.

Excellent material. Never thought it would be such a convenient way of learning.

What does the schedule look like?

Since all the theory will have been completed by the time you get here, the practical part of the course can be completed in 2 days. The 10 Rescue Skills will be done over the first 1.5 days, and the 2 Rescue Scenarios will be completed on the afternoon of the 2nd day. We think that there should be time for some fun dives during these 2 days, and we are offering fun dives for only EUR18/dive!

More info about Rescue Course with e-Learning:

The PADI Rescue Diver Course Online content covers the theory training for the PADI Rescue Diver Course. The Online content is broken down into 5 easy-to-learn sections after an introduction. The theory covers a wide range of topics including, The Psychology of Rescue, Recognizing Diver Stress, Accident Management, Assisting Responsive and Unresponsive Divers at the Surface and Underwater, Equipment Problems, Oxygen Delivery Systems, Missing Diver Procedures, Responding to Diver Emergencies and in-water Rescue Breathing.

The course is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to prevent, and if necessary, manage dive emergencies. The course broadens a diver’s awareness and improves their skills and confidence. Most certified PADI Rescue Divers look back on their rescue training as one of the most challenging – sometimes demanding – and therefore most rewarding courses they’ve taken. The subject is serious but the training is fun.

After enrolling, PADI’s eLearning® system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.
