A diver's prayer

Scuba Diver's Prayer saint croix us virgin islands

The rescue diver myth

MYTH: That is a course for medical professionals, and I am just a fun diver. It is way too hard and I don't need to learn that."

Let us dispel the myth for you. It is NOT a course for medical professionals, but if they are recreational divers, like you, they can take it too, just like you! It is not a hard, long course. The course is going to teach you basics of rescue. And it only take two days to complete! If you are not current on CPR/AED/Basic First Aid, you will take that course at the same time.

Do you want to be a better safer dive buddy? Why take the PADI Rescue Diver course?

Latitude 17 Scuba promotes safe, fun diving for all of our customers. We also have a firm belief that all divers should attain Rescue Diver level at some point in their diving experiences, preferably early on. In PADI, the progression is Open Water, Advanced, and then Rescue Diver. Remember you are learning the basics of rescue for recreational diving to give your buddy a fighting chance until emergency personnel can take over. Major recovery and rescue needs to be left to the professionals.

The Rescue Diver course focuses on learning skills to take care of yourself (self-rescue), take care of your dive buddy or another diver, if a problem arises. The course discusses a wide range of skill sets designed to allow you to "stop, think, and act" in an emergency situation. While the course is physically challenging it is also mentally satisfying, knowing you can help increase the possible survivability of a victim, by having the ability to perform in-water skills. You will find the skills useful on land also. Learning effective CPR/AED/Basic First Aid can help anyone at anytime. We have personal experience in that area which makes us uniquely qualified.

Contact us to discuss how to take you to a level of diving to build your confidence and abilities.
