    Course Structure

    • Theory
    You will be required to read the manual and complete the Knowledge Development. In preparation for your in water skills, your instructor will show you some videos and walk you through anything that you don’t understand. Finally, you’ll be asked to sit for a written multiple choice exam. If EFR training is needed, it will also be done on the day you do your theory with us.

    • Swimming Pool sessions
    You will practise 10 exercises from ‘Tired diver on the surface’ to salvage operations from the boat or shore for non responding divers. Don’t worry, your instructor will first demonstrate the skills for you.

    • Open water sessions and Rescue Scenarios
    Here in the sea, you will perform all the skills you’ve learnt in the swimming pool. You’ll be joining our day trip on the boat out to the sea. Here’s the fun part, throughout the day, your instructor will create some rescue scenarios for you to demonstrate your readiness and awareness as a Rescue Diver. To make the scenarios as realistic as possible, your instructor may even ask other instructors or boat crew to join in the act. Have fun!
