SDI Rescue Diver


After you finished an Advanced Open Water Diver certification,

to approach the top class in recreational diving.

In the two courses "Open Water Diver" and "Advanced Open Water Diver" you have primarily learned how to safely plan and perform your dives in the buddy team.


The SDI Rescue Diver now goes a step further - here you should learn skills and abilities, how to take care of your buddy (and of course always yourself) and how to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations in advance or, in the worst case, how to react correctly to such situations.

- How to react to a diver in stress or panic
