Stress and Rescue is probably the most enjoyable, challenging and rewarding course you will ever take as a recreational diver!
In order to begin your Stress and Rescue course you need to hold a First Aid/CPR qualification. This can be either the Emergency First Response certification or an award from another organisation, such as St John’s Ambulance.
The two-day Stress and Rescue course expands on what you have already learned about how to prevent problems and how to manage them if they occur. You will become a more confident diver and buddy.
Day 1 of the Stress and Rescue course involves knowledge reviews in the classroom and a practical skills session in our on-site heated pool. You will learn techniques for:
Recognising and managing stress in other divers
Management of emergencies and equipment needed
Rescuing panicked divers
Rescuing unresponsive divers
Day 2 is held at an open water dive site, where you will take part in a series of exercises to put your skills to the test. Covering a variety of possible circumstances, we make this part of the course as realistic as possible!
Why not add Emergency Oxygen Provider to your range of skills? Together with Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver these courses will ensure that you are prepared to handle any emergency situation.
