Diving Courses in South Wales – Rescue Diver

The rescue diver course is a challenging one requiring physical and mental resilience. Rescue divers need to hold the EFR qualification or comparable first aid qualification. Ideally candidates commencing the rescue diver course should be suitably experienced, and confident in their own diving skills. They must be able to demonstrate excellent buoyancy skills.

The theory session includes:
  • Problem identification and solving
  • Solution thinking
  • The psychology of rescues
  • Managing emergency situations


The practical sessions include:
  • Helping a panicked or distressed diver
  • Helping a diver low an air
  • Aiding an injured diver
  • Rescuing an unresponsive diver
  • Accident scene management

Skills are first learnt in the swimming pool before moving to the open water
