PADI Rescue Diver


PADI Rescue Diver, description of the training:

The PADI Rescue Diver is described by divers like the most gratifying training. Why?
Simply because during this course, first you learn to have more confidence in yourself and your skills, but also to become a better buddy.
In a second time, you learn exercices to resolve problems, to prevent and manage different situations in the water, until it becomes a reflex.
Furthermore, the training is quiet funny. It’s serious, but there is also a lot of fun during learning and at the end, you will know how to help, no matter what happens!
