Bali Diving – PADI Rescue Diver Course
Rescue diver course in Bali
The PADI Rescue diver course is the course that our PADI Instructors enjoy teaching the most, it is physically challenging but also extremely rewarding. The Rescue Diver Course not only teaches you to manage problems in the water but also how to prevent them before they occur, building your confidence and experience as a scuba diver.
During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.
Mees took his Rescue course with PADI Instructor Natalia and PADI Divemaster Bobby as his victim. Bobby is very realistic at dying, tiring himself out, getting himself lost and entangled, all problems that Mees had to find a solution to as part of the course.
The course consists of theory including accident prevention, oxygen management and emergency action planning, then you practice skills in the pool and the shallow open water such as compass navigation, search patterns, preventing uncontrolled ascents, bringing an unconscious diver to the surface and rescue breathing while towing.
But the first thing you learn is to assess the scene. Is it safe for you to assist and can you assist without entering the water?
Once you have practiced all the skills, the fun day begins! The rescue scenarios! The final day of the PADI Rescue course the students are given surprise emergency scenarios which they have to manage from beginning until end and with Mees these took place diving on the awesome USAT Liberty shipwreck at Tulamben, Bali. The wreck has plenty of places to hide when you are a missing diver and the shore exit can be a challenge in itself. Lots of fun was had saving Bobby!
Congratulation Mees on becoming a PADI Rescue diver.
