Is it worth doing more training after the advanced course?
Have you ever considered what you would do during a diving emergency...?
Generally most divers will do their Open Water and Advanced certification and accept their level of training is sufficient...
Did you know that statistics show the highest number of deaths while scuba diving happen around the time a diver has logged about 25 open water dives and completed their advanced certification, it then drops off quite significantly as divers get more training and experience.
Our advice is to get the next level of training as soon as possible, as to be honest... you don't know... what you don't know... So it is all too easy to become a complacent diver in an "ignorance-is-bliss bubble"
The reality of diving and the reality of life in general is... ACCIDENTS HAPPEN!!! The question is, what will you do when you are put in that situation?
The PADI Rescue Diver and Emergency First Response Courses, overseen by PADI Course Director Kevin Cook, will prepare you to deal with most diving situations - like out of air divers, panicking divers underwater and at the surface, how to approach these divers and how to safely surface unconscious divers. The Emergency Fist Response Course will take you through basic first aid as well as how to use an AED (Automatic Electronic Defibrillator). We will also touch on Emergency Oxygen Administration.
Knowing these skills could potentially save the life of another diver or loved one.
Scuba Diving is a sport and activity that we all dearly love and are super passionate about, however you need to be prepared for the eventuality of an accident while diving and if put in that situation you have an obligation to have the training and comfort levels to assist another diver in distress.
You can gain that confidence and ability through our Rescue Diver & EFR courses!
