Level 3 | Rescue Diver

Many Divers describe the PADI Rescue course to be both challenging but yet the most rewarding course they have ever taken.

This course enables you to learn to prevent and manage problems in the water and at the same time to be more confident as a diver.
Essentially, you would be able to lend a helping hand to others should a cause arises. In the midst of the focus learning, there is still room for fun, so fret not if you think that this course is only focussed on the technical and skills aspect.
