Course Outline

Pre-Course Study

Prior to the course watch the PADI Rescue Diver video either online before you arrive in Phuket OR in the comfort of your own hotel. Complete some quizzes at the end of each chapter of the PADI Rescue Diver manual in preparation for the first day of your course.

Day One

  • At the pool-side restaurant start by discussing with your own private instructor what you saw in the diving video and read in the PADI Rescue Diver manual.
  • Next, time to get in the water. Learn and practice rescue diving skills and techniques in a custom-designed diving pool. Watch as your instructor demonstrates the rescue skills viewed on the DVD and then try them for yourself.
  • Skills include: how to deal with a panicking diver, search for a missing diver, surfacing an unconscious diver and giving in-water rescue breaths.

Day Two

  • Continue to practice rescue techniques but this time either at Kata Beach (if conditions are OK) or from a day trip diving boat. During the day repeat all the skills learnt the previous day but this time in the open water.

Day Three

  • Continue to practice rescue techniques on a day trip diving boat. During your day trip to the beautiful island of Racha Yai expect the unexpected with some final rescue scenarios to test your skills learnt over the previous two days.
  • Reward all your hard work with some time to explore and enjoy the beauty and variety of the local marine life.
