The divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging one, although is the most rewarding course for anyone that has ever done it. Why? Because you learn how to prevent and manage problems in the water and you become a diver more confident with your skills, knowing that you can help others if they need it. During the course, you will learn how to become a better partner in practicing problem resolutions techniques until it becomes second nature to you. Furthermore, the course is fun- but serious, although it allows a lot of laughs centered on the learning.
