Diver Stress and Rescue


Prevent and manage dive-related accidents and problems.

In the driver's license for the car, first, the first aid course will be completed and then visited the driving school. When diving, once the diving is learned and then dived.

But what if there is something wrong with the dive partner?
When a diver gets stressed underwater?
If someone swallows water or has water in the mask and shoots at the surface?
Or someone on the surface is too exhausted to swim back to the boat or shore?

There are many minor stress situations that can be dealt with immediately and correctly before the stress starts to panic. But that has to be practiced and played through.
There is the Dive Stress and Rescue program! This is the level to which every responsible scuba diver should continue his education.

Here, for the first time, the student's attention is fully focused on the diver and preventing, detecting and solving problems above and below water.

The course lasts about two to four days and includes both theoretical and practical training sessions in the pool and open water. Certification requires proof of CPR training within the last two years.
