HOW YOU WILL BECOME A RESCUE DIVER ON ROATAN?
There are five Rescue Diver topics to study, each with a corresponding video to watch and a series of rescue techniques to practice. You will find a series of questions to test your knowledge at the end of each section of the manual. Several short quizzes will help you prepare for the simple multiple choice exam at the end.
We take you to shallow water just off the beach near our dive shop in Roatan to practice rescue techniques. Your PADI instructor will brief you on what to do and demonstrate each technique, then you will repeat what they have shown you until you are comfortable performing them.
PADI Rescue Diver course includes two training dives which focus on possible rescue scenarios and how to respond to different emergency situations. You will plan your dives with your instructor and then go out by boat to put into practice the rescue techniques and skills you mastered in the shallows.

EMERGENCY FIRST RESPONSE FIRST AID AND CPR TRAINING
Know how to respond to emergencies – just in case. Statistics show you’re more likely to give first aid to someone you know than a stranger. When minutes count, you’ll be the person to give the necessary aid to a family member, dive buddy or co-workers, before Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrive. The Emergency First Response (EFR) Primary and Secondary Care course is an accredited CPR and First Aid program that helps divers advance their knowledge, providing the skills they need to potentially save a life.
This one day course builds the confidence and skills needed to provide basic emergency care. You won’t just watch a video, you’ll get hands on practice with a CPR mannequin, simulate bandaging, role play an emergency scenario and other skills. You’ll get to practice each skill until you feel comfortable.
