|Course Duration||Three days|
|Minimum Age||12 years old|
|Swimming Ability Needed||Good|
IMPORTANT: We offer a 3 day Rescue course as opposed to 2 days offered by most Phuket dive companies. With nearly 35 years of teaching this course between us, we believe that 3 days is the minimum amount of time needed to train someone to be a good Rescue diver.
To take this course all students must have the following:
Over a few days, learn how to become more self-sufficient as a diver and also how to help other divers in a problem situation.
|Self-Study||Before the course starts, watch a video online on rescue techniques and complete some questionnaires.|
|Day One||Start by spending the first hour or so completing the study sections by the poolside. This then leaves almost a whole day to practice 10 main dive skills in the pool to prepare you thoroughly for future Rescue scenarions. 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||Expect the unexpected on the last day of the course, either at the beach or from a dive boat. To test your rescue techniques, you will be exposed to some final rescue scenarios.|
Nobody wants to sit in a classroom while on holiday if it can be avoided. This is why, as soon as online learning became available, we decided to offer our students the chance to complete most of the study in advance of their course. This also gives us almost a whole day in the swimming pool to help you get used to being back underwater and to teach you necessary dive techniques rather than spending half of it behind a desk. This results in a more comfortable, safer and fun experience for our guests at no extra charge.
As many skills involve swimming towards, and towing of, rescue victims all students should have good swimming ability and a reasonable level of physical fitness.
To enable us to give you the safest and best diving experience, we only offer private tuition for all our diving courses in Phuket. Read about how this benefits you here.
Online booking discounts of between 5% and 20% are available on all course prices depending on the number of students. Terms and conditions apply.
Certified divers and snorkellers are welcome to join on the trips too. Certified divers can receive a 10% discount off the standard trip price if diving with the student(s). Full trip price list here.
