Gain confidence and become a better dive buddy!
This class will mentally and physically prepare you to handle emergency situations that may occur at the surface or under the water. First though, you will learn how to prevent possible dive emergencies.
During your Rescue course, you will also learn how to recognize diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen, properly set up equipment, and administer emergency oxygen, thereby earning the Emergency Oxygen Provider certification too!
The cost of the class includes all rental gear, emergency rescue equipment for use after the course, Emergency Oxygen Provider manual and instruction for your Emergency First Response (CPR and First aid Course), Rescue Diver and Emergency Oxygen Provider certifications. Digital materials for Rescue Diver and Emergency First Response must be purchased separately.
**Note: If you hold current CPR and First Aid certifications, your course and materials costs will be reduced by approximately $100.00
