PADI Rescue Diver Online

PADI Rescue Diver Online content is broken down into an

introduction and 5 easy-to-learn sections. The course covers a

wide range of topics including:
• The Psychology of Rescue
• Recognizing Diver Stress
• Accident Management
• Assisting Responsive and Unresponsive Divers at
the Surface and Underwater
• Equipment Problems
• Oxygen Delivery Systems
• Missing Diver Procedures
• Responding to Diver Emergencies
• Inwater Rescue Breathing

The online sections mirror the material in the Rescue Diver

manual and DVD.

How does it work?

After enrolling, PADI’s eLearning® system presents your student

with interactive presentations that include videos, audio,

graphics and reading. The videos are actually integrated

into the online program which is a new feature of the online

course. Five short quizzes let your student check their understanding

of the presented information before moving on. This

lets them move through the program efficiently and at their

own pace. End-of-section exams verify their mastery of the

entire topic and are automatically scored.

What else is required to complete the course?

After completing the online portion of the PADI Rescue Diver

course, the student will visit his/her PADI Dive Center or Resort

to complete the training. The dive center must administer a

short eLearning Quick Review to confirm the student’s understanding

of safety-related material from the course. Then,

the student will complete the inwater training portion of the

course. The Instructor may introduce the student to ten rescue

exercises in confined water and then have him/her participate

in two Rescue Diver scenarios in open water.
