Rescue Refresher

Rescue skills — like all dive skills — remain fresh with practice. Fortunately dive accidents are rare, so we aren’t called upon to put our rescue skills to use very often.

Just like your CPR/First Aid certifications, you should plan to refresh your rescue skills every two years. If you are already a certified Rescue Diver, you can join a Blue Planet Rescue Diver class and update your training.


    • PADI Rescue Diver certification or Junior Rescue Diver certification (or other internationally recognized training agency)
    • CPR and First Aid training (like Emergency First Response or DAN Basic Life Support: CPR & First Aid) within the past 24 months



    • PADI Rescue Diver Manual
    • View the PADI Rescue Diver DVD
    • Diving Accident Management Work Slate
    • Log book


    • $125 includes open water exercises and scenarios with instructor. Divers are responsible for travel/entry fees to site where open water dives and scenarios are held. Rental equipment is available.
