The PADI Rescue Diver program develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid. This certification is an important step in expanding your knowledge, experience, and confidence as a diver. To enroll in the course you will need to have a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification (or equivalent).
There is also a requirement that, prior to Rescue Diver certification, you must have a C.P.R. certification from a recognized agency within the last two years.
The EFR First Aid course may be used to meet this requirement, and is offered as a package with the Rescue course. PADI Rescue Diver certification (or equivalent) is also a prerequisite for all PADI leadership programs, starting with Divemaster.
The PADI Rescue Diver course runs over three days and covers various topics relating to the analysis and prevention of diving related accidents. If combined with the EFR First Aid course the time required is four days.

.Self-rescue and diver stress
