Online Learning

PADI Rescue Diver eLearning Course:

  • The eLearning course covers the knowledge development portion of the Rescue Diver course.
  • You’ll have access to multimedia presentations, videos, interactive quizzes, and knowledge reviews.
  • The material covers topics such as self-rescue, recognizing and managing stress in other divers, emergency management and equipment, and accident prevention.
  • You can progress through the eLearning course at your own pace, allowing you to study when and where it is convenient for you.
  • You’ll have the opportunity to review and reinforce your understanding of the material before moving on to the practical training.

Practical Training

  • Once you complete the eLearning portion, you’ll participate in real-world action and hands-on training sessions conducted by a qualified PADI Instructor.
  • The practical training typically includes confined water sessions and open water scenarios.
  • Confined Water Sessions: In a controlled environment such as a pool, you’ll practice and refine rescue skills. This includes techniques for assisting tired or panicked divers, managing unresponsive divers, and conducting effective search patterns.
  • Open Water Scenarios: You’ll apply the skills learned in confined water to real diving situations. These scenarios simulate realistic emergency situations, where you’ll respond as both the rescuer and the victim


Upon successful completion of the eLearning course, confined water sessions, and open water scenarios, you’ll receive the PADI Rescue Diver certification.

This certification signifies that you have the knowledge and skills to respond effectively to diving emergencies, assist other divers in distress, and be a proactive and safety-conscious diver.

First Aid and CPR Training within the last two years, like the Emergency First Response (EFR) course, which covers essential first aid and CPR skills

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving. To avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Download here.
