Scuba divers describe the PADI 5* Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

PADI 5* (Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Rescue Diver course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Rescue Diver course.

What will you learn?

The PADI 5* Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include:

  • Self rescue
  • Recognizing and managing stress in other divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
  • Rescuing unresponsive divers

What Scuba gear will you use?

You’ll use your basic SCUBA equipment and will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation. During exercises, you’ll work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and perhaps CPR mannequins. Your Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit, which will be useful throughout your diving.

Things you need to know before you start your learning:

  • Please make sure that you fill out the Dive Medical Questionnaire before starting the course (available as a download 2.1.5 RSTC MedState v201 or in-store), this will tell you whether you are fit to dive or whether you need to get a dive medical done by a diving doctor. If you need to see a diving doctor for clearance, please make sure that you do so before the course commencement date. A list of suitable Diving Doctors can be accessed from SPUMS.ORG.AU. Our staff can answer any questions you may have about seeking out the dive medical, however it is essential that you have obtained clearance prior to starting your course. Adelaide Scuba do not provide refunds for a failed medical after you have attended the class orientation and registration.
  • Emergency First Response primary and secondary care – current certification.
  • Minimum Advanced Diver certification.
  • A minimum age of 14 years applies. Every student under the age of 18 needs to have a parent or a guardian sign a consent form (available from the dive center). Students younger than 15 years old will attain a Junior Open Water Scuba Diver certification on completion of all performance requirements.
