The Rescue Diver Course

IDR 5,000,000 / US $335

Become the buddy everyone wants to dive with

The Rescue Diver course takes the focus away from basic diving skills and starts to train the diver in the prevention and scene management of dive incidents. Starting with skills in confined water, the diver then moves into open water and learns how to search for missing divers and how to recover an injured diver from the water.
