Diver Stress and Rescue


This course is very important to make you a better dive buddy and is a prerequisite to dive leadership. It is a course every qualified diver can and should complete.

The best rescue is the one you will never have to make. During this course you will learn how to see the signs of stress and better manage your dives to minimise risk of an incident.
