PADI Rescue Diver Course in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah – Completing the Circle

Enjoy an article by our Dive Centre Manager, Ian Edwards, about one of his favorite PADI courses to teach in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah with Borneo Dream.

When you finish your PADI Open Water Diver Course you have been given the basics of diving safely and how to look after yourself, and a little on helping others while diving. During the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course you learn how to further develop your scuba diving skills be it deep, navigation, search and recovery or what ever really takes your fancy. Now when you do your PADI Rescue Diver course this is when you complete the circle – you are capable too help others. You will learn how to take care of yourself but a lot of the course is about seeing potential problems and stopping it from occurring or if need be help others in trouble (be it a small problem or a life threatening problem).

To enter the PADI Rescue Diver course you must be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or equivalent (yes crossovers from aother agency is allowed). Also you must have recently completed a EFR (emergency first aid) course. The PADI Rescue Diver course is broken down into three sections – Theory, Skill sessions, and Practical scenarios.

In the theory you will study all aspect of rescue and problem solving techniques useful for the the diver.

In the skill sessions you will learn the skills to help yourself and others in an emergency. The skill sessions are fun and unlike most courses this one is certainly a case of the more the the merrier.  When I did my PADI Rescue Diver course there was a large number of students which meant our PADI Instructor could put together some great scenarios which were challenging but also fun. Looking back on it now we learned alot from the rescue scenario sessions.

In the practical scenario you will put it all together and practice what you have learnt. By the end you will be pleasantly surprised how much you have learnt and how far you have come, your confidence as a diver will be higher. Other divers will also treat you with more respect as you have gone out your way not just to learn more for self but also for the divers around you.

Once you have finished you will be one step closer to becoming a PADI Divemaster or PADI Master Scuba Diver.

Paul had the kind assistance of some of the Borneo Dream staff during his PADI Rescue Diver course rescue scenarios ;-) Joanne was a very convincing panicked diver on the surface, whilst Tracy pretended to be an unconscious diver on the sea bed so convincingly that the local marine life didn’t notice she was there – she a shoal of Squid, a Flounder and Blue Spotted Rays come very close to her for a look. They should both be actresses . . . . Continue reading
