PADI Rescue diver course
We train our divers with the EFR course, a world-renowned agency (Emergency First Response). If you already have a diploma from another organization that is less than 36 months old, you will be exempt from taking the EFR training, it must include CPR training.
EFR covers primary and secondary care, including CPR and First Aid . This is the training that will allow you to be able to react correctly to all types of emergencies.
Becoming a "first responder" or rescuer is really very rewarding, it will give you more knowledge and confidence to face stressful post-accident situations. This training can help you in your everyday life because you will know how to react and in what order to act. You will learn that it is better to provide adequate care than withholding perfect care.
The training includes an academic part with the manual and the video. Each theory section will be reviewed with practical exercises and scenarios. You will also have to do several full scenarios of emergency situations, this is where the creativity of your instructors will surprise you, remember there is not always just one way to react.
The Rescue Diver course consists of a theoretical part containing 5 chapters and a video. Each chapter contains a knowledge review at the end of it, which you will need to complete. This is to make sure that you understand the topic covered in each chapter. At the very end of the theoretical course you will have to pass an exam in the form of 50 multiple-choice questions. Usually your instructor will let you read the manual and watch the videos section by section and correct the knowledge reviews with you. Our students like to watch the videos of the Rescue Diver course on our tablets rather than in the classroom, so they can stay in our relaxation area near the pool, the bar, lying on a lounge chair or in our hammocks. The beautiful student life in Nusa Penida! Should you wish to complete the theory online via eLearning, please let us know.
The practical part reviews the knowledge acquired including a Self Rescue and 10 exercises to familiarize you with all the rescue techniques, you will first practice these in the swimming pool. You will then take the next step where you get to go over the 10 Exercises in the open water of Nusa Penida, followed by two rescue scenarios. For more realism the scenarios will be done during real boat trips with of course your instructor, assistant divemaster but also any of our diving clients wishing to participate.
