You’ll learn to how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient, so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.

  • Secondary Care (First Aid) – Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm. You’ll learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.
  • Care for Children – This course allows participants to learn, practice and apply emergency care skills specific to helping infants and children with medical emergencies. It’s designed for those who work with children or are likely to have to respond to emergencies involving youngsters. This course is often integrated with Primary Care (CPR) and Secondary Care (First Aid) courses.

When workplace or governmental requirements specify this training, the CPR & AED courses meets the need. This course is often integrated into First Aid at Work programs.

Rescue Course


Learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver. Its challenging, yet very rewarding.

The PADI Rescue Diver Course is a pivotal step in any divers education. This is where you learn to look beyond yourself and focus on problem prevention and problem management in diving scenarios. This course is also a step into becoming a more independent  diver. Rescue divers are trained to look beyond themselves and to consider the safety and well being of other divers. The PADI Rescue Diver Course is all about :

  • Expanding your knowledge on what you as a diver already know.
  • How to prevent problems.
  • How to manage problems when they occur through techniques such as self rescue, recuing panicked divers & unresponsive divers.


The fun part about the PADI Rescue Diver course is rising to challenges and mastering them, it is an enjoyable way to build a divers confidence. The PADI Rescue Diver course takes a flexible and conceptual approach to rescue. During the water training sessions of the course students develop foundational skills, which are adapted to the divers personal differences and needs. Divers are encouraged during skill development to experiment, benefit from their strengths, recognize their limitations and consider these variables in emergency, and then act using their appraisal of the best method for the situation.

The PADI Rescue Diver course philosophy focuses on the concept that there is rarely only one way to accomplish a task. There is no single “right” way to perform a trescue, but rather there are many variables and resources that rescuers consider and draw upon, depending upon the scenario.
