Why take the PADI Rescue Diver & EFR Course here?
Often said to be the most fun of all PADI Training Courses, The PADI Rescue Course is a must for anyone who enjoys SCUBA Diving. Divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the “most challenging, yet most rewarding course” and for good reason. You will learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills in a variety of different rescue scenarios. These skills will be put to the test, both on top of the water and underneath, so that you can complete them easily. With skills and training comes confidence and leadership.
The waters here in Tenerife are perfect for completing the PADI Rescue Diver Course as there is very little current to swim against and the visibility is usually excellent plus our waters are warm all year round so getting cold won’t be a problem. You may find that a local family of Atlantic Green Turtles may be watching you as you do your training!
The course duration is just two days with The Emergency First Response Course just a half day in the classroom. Once completed you will have the skills and experience to begin the PADI Divemaster Course.
