PADI Rescue Diver Course

Price: $10,200 MXN
The PADI Diver Rescue course is probably one of the most fun, exciting and rewarding courses out there!

On the first day of this course, you will participate in the Emergency First Responder course, to learn basic primary and secondary care. On the second day, you will head to the water. The PADI Rescue Diver Course is one of the most rewarding courses you can take – it really is ‘Serious Fun’. PADI Rescue Diver Course is widely accepted as one of the most challenging, rewarding, and fun dive courses available! 

What will you learn?

The course is divided into three parts:

Part One: Knowledge Development: Videos and Knowledge reviews and exam

Part Two: Rescue Training Exercise Sessions

Part Three: Open Water Rescue Scenarios, which will let you put everything you have learned into practice.


The course usually covers most of the following topics:

  • Self-rescue and diver stress
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Panicked diver response
  • In-water rescue breathing protocols[5]
  • Egress (exits)
  • Dive accident scenarios

In many training agencies, these dives represent introductory knowledge and skills that may be further refined in a specialty course.

To participate in open water Rescue Exercises and be certified as a PADI Rescue Diver, the student must complete the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive and hold a PADI (Junior) Adventure Diver certification.
