What does it consist of?

During the rescue course you will learn how to deal with stress, so it does not trigger panic. This is called “auto rescue”. In addition, we will train you to identify and prevent any problems that may happen during a day diving. 

We will practise stress management, auto rescue and rescue drills. They are all extremely useful and we will have great fun while we are practising them.

We will teach you a particularly important aspect of diving, how to manage dysbaric injuries, this is caused by a sudden change of pressure. Like, for example, lung overexpansion or decompression illness.  They are not common accidents, but it is especially important to know how to act quickly if it does happen.

You will also learn how to elaborate an emergency plan adapted to your day to day diving. 

We will also emphasise a few important things about your diving equipment. For example, how to maintain it, how to use it correctly to avoid accidents and the importance of not manipulating it.
