Saturday 9:00AM – 12:00PM: Theory Session + 12:00PM – 5:00PM: Rescue Exercises

We meet at the dive centre on Saturday morning at 9AM and start with a morning theory session. During this theory session we will discuss all the diving theory related to the rescue exercises and scenarios that we will be doing this weekend. After the theory session we’ll do the Rescue Diver Exam before we have our lunch at the dive centre and then head off to the dive site (or pool in case of bad weather) where we will be doing our rescue excersises of that day.

Things to bring:

  • Certification Card

  • Rescue Diver Manual

  • Swimmers and a Towel

  • Lunch and Water

  • Sunscreen

Sunday 9:00AM – 5:00PM: Rescue Excersises and Scenarios

We meet either at the dive centre or at the dive site (whichever is easier) and start with the remaining rescue exercises. After you’ve shown your instructor that you can perform these exercises with ease, you will then go on two dives with your instructor and fellow students, where we will simulate certaine emergencies, called rescue scenario sessions. After we have completed the scenarios as well, we will head back to the dive centre to finalise the paperwork. You will receive your Rescue Diver Certification in the mail within a few weeks!

Things to bring:

  • Logbook

  • Swimmers and a Towel

  • Lunch and Water

  • Sunscreen

FAQ: Will I need to bring any gear myself (for example mask, snorkel and fins)? No, all gear will be provided by Diving Adelaide. However, to guarantee perfect fit and the most enjoyable experience, we do recommend bringing your own gear or coming in store to have a look at our masks, as the mask is the most important piece of equipment!

FAQ: How many dives do I need to do before I can sign up for the Rescue Diver Course? The only prerequisite for starting your Rescue Diver Course is that you have already learnt to dive and hold an Advanced Open Water Diver certification (or equivalent). The course is designed in such a way that you can go straight from your Advanced Open Water Diver Course into the Rescue Course, so no additional experience is required (except the Emergency First Response First Aid course, which is a prerequisite for the Rescue Course). We do however recommend getting a few dives under your belt, before you jump on the Rescue Course, to get the maximum benefits from this course.

FAQ: Where will I be able to dive with my certification? Any dive centre around the world will recognise your PADI certification card and will allow you to dive with them. PADI is the largest certification agency in the world with more than 6000 dive centres. Even if you dive with a non-PADI dive centre, they will still recognise your certification!

FAQ: What happens when the weather isn’t looking too good? The main thing to remember is that we are going to get wet anyway, so if it rains a little bit that doesn’t matter (you will be nice and warm in your thick wetsuit anyway). However, we are of course dependent on the weather, with the wind and swell being the main factors that determine whether we can go diving or not. If the weather forecast predicts huge swells and high winds, we will head to the Pool instead of the Open Water on Saturday. If the weather isn’t looking great on the Sunday, we may have to transfer the Rescue Exercises and Scenario training part of the course to a different weekend. We will of course notify you beforehand if this is the case!
