Rescue Diver

“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver Course. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems and how to manage them if they occur. The fun part about this course is rising to challenges and mastering them. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.

Detailed Course Structure:

Knowledge Development Sessions:

The Knowledge Development Sessions will be a combination of self and prescriptive learning.

Upon registration you will receive the PADI Manual, PADI Dive Accident Management Flowchart and PADI Rescue Diver DVD (via a DropBox link) for self study prior to the next lesson. It will take approximately 6 to 8 hours over one week for the self study. You will have to complete all the knowledge reviews in the dive manual and watch the DVD prior to the lesson with your instructor.

During the theory session, the instructor will go through the completed knowledge reviews and evaluate any mistakes or areas where divers are uncertain or weak at. Upon complete understanding of the uncertainties, students are required to sit through a final exam to ensure 100% mastery and how and when to apply the knowledge learnt.

The timings will be confirmed between your PADI Instructor.

Skills Development Session:

The Skills Development Session will take place at the Outram Secondary School swimming pool usually on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evening. The session will be held between approximately 6:30 and 9:00pm. Address – 3 York Hill, Singapore 168622 (view map – here).

The Pool session is to introduce you to the required 12 rescue exercises prior to the open water evaluation. During the session, fundamental skills of self rescue and rescue of other divers will be taught.

Open Water Evaluation:

This is the most important and exciting part of the course. After all the knowledge and skills development and students showing competency in them, the open water training serves as an evaluation that student divers are able to demonstrate mastery in the 12 required rescue exercises. These skills are further combined and executed to represent two open water simulated real life rescue scenarios.

The final part is the open water evaluation. This will be arranged at a later date at a safe and suitable open water training site in Singapore.
