Nobody wants to be stressed out while diving and certainly none of us want to dive
with someone else who is stressed out. The Rescue Diver Class for all of you who
want to learn how to avoid stress while diving, how to recognize signs of stress
when they do occur, and what to do if you find yourself in a rescue situation because
someone has managed not to do the first two things.
This class is a must for all divers, and highly recommended for anyone Open Water
certified or above. It involves just two pool sessions and one day in the ocean.
And best of all, it's incredibly fun. You get to throw floats, practice towing and
calming down stressed-out divers, and searching for and aiding missing divers underwater.
You do not need to have First Aid or CPR training to take this class or to receive
your Stress & Rescue Diver certification.
At SCUBA.COM, we feel that "Be Prepared" is more than just a Boy Scout's
motto, it should be a diver's motto as well.
You and your buddy are suiting up for your first dive of the day. Suddenly a diver
pops to the surface 50 feet away and yells, "Help, my buddy's down there and
he's not moving, I think there's something wrong!" There's no one else on the
beach but you and your buddy. Would you know what to do next?
Do you want to be the best buddy you can be? Do you want to be prepared to lend
assistance to a fellow diver and know what to do in an emergency? Then take our
Rescue Diver Class. We focus on diving rescue and accident management and prevention,
but along the way you will increase your confidence in your own diving and be better
able to assist others.
