Ultimate Rescue Diver
This course includes both the PADI Rescue Diver Certification and the DAN Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) Certification making you the “Ultimate” Rescue Diver!
“Challenging” and “rewarding” best describe the PADI Rescue Diver course. Building upon what you’ve already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur. We make this class Ultimate by adding the Divers Alert Network, Diving Emergency Management Provider Program. In the “DEMP” Class you will learn First Aid, CPR and AED use, how to administer Oxygen, basic Neurological examinations and First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries.
Your class begins with two mornings in the classroom learning CPR/AED, First Aid and Administering Oxygen. Saturday morning we conclude DEMP with followed by classroom and confined water pool time to understand and practice the techniques of being a PADI Rescue Diver. We conclude with Open Water Rescue Class to further practice and refine these skills. Finally an epic scenario is developed by our instructional staff for you and your fellow classmates to put your newly found skills to the test.
