Ever thought about becomming a Rescue Diver

Rescue1300x225Being a Rescue Diver. It evokes mental images of you jumping from helicopters into frigid waters like Kevin Costner in The Guardian. While becoming a rescue diver won't make you a virile hunk from Hollywood, it can be a challenging and rewarding experience.

Rescue training takes you beyond the purely recreational level by expanding your knowledge and skills to assist other divers, handle problems and emergencies, and prevent those problems, leaving you with a sense of security as a diver that cannot be obtained in any other way. Rescue certification is a prerequisite for all dive professional level training.

The course makes the serious subject of accident management enjoyable and rewarding. Until now, the emphasis of your training has been you and your dive buddy; the rescue training teaches you to make diving more safe and enjoyable for others.
During this course, you'll learn how to foresee, prevent and manage potential diving accidents; from assisting a tired diver to handling possible emergency scenarios, you'll practise applying the knowledge and skills that can make the difference in the unlikely event that problems do arise.
You must be an Open Water Diver and have recognised CPR certification, such as the Emergency First Response , within the past two years. You may be asked for proof of logged dives. Big Blue provides all equipment, boat trips, etc., for the duration of the course.
