Dive Experience

Unlike the Divemaster course, the Rescue course DOES NOT have a minimum dive experience required to start. Here at Amed Fun Divers Bali we highly recommended Rescue diver students has dive experience beyond the Open Water and Advanced Open Water training dives.

The more comfortable you are in the water, the more comfortable you will be with the added responsibility of training to become, and ultimately being a Rescue Diver.

We conduct the course over 2-3 days. Like all courses the Rescue Diver course is performances based and extend to a 4th day if required to ensure all student performance requirements are met.

The course consists of three modules:

  • Knowledge Development – conducted in our a/c cooled classrooms.

  • Confined water training – conducted in our purpose built swimming pool.

  • Open water training – dive trips logging a minimum of 2 full training dives.

You will be required to complete an Emergency Assistance Plan and the multiple choice Rescue diver exam. Knowledge development sessions are scheduled during the 2 sessions of two days and the EAP & Final exam is completed during the afternoon session of day 3.


Confined Water Training

The philosophy for the revamped Rescue Diver course was to introduce new skills first in confined water, ideally in a swimming pool. Fun Divers Bali implemented this important philosophy as we realized the importance of students mastering these skills first before attempting to use them in an open water environment.

We conduct a Confined water Rescue diver skills session in our purpose built training pool during the afternoon session on Day 1 of the Rescue Diver course.

We start with a ‘Self Rescue review’ focusing on stress situations a diver may experience and how they can help themselves. We then introduce the following exercises, initially via an Instructor led demonstration before allowing student practice time.

  • Tired diver

  • Panicked Diver

  • Response from shore to a responsive but stressed diver

  • Distressed Diver underwater

  • Surfacing an unresponsive diver

  • Dealing with an unconscious diver on the surface

  • In water rescue breathing techniques

  • Exiting an unresponsive diver from pool and shore

  • Response from shore to unresponsive diver

Special Attention!

Don’t settle for anything less than the best. Some dive centers may tell you that it’s best to complete confined water in the ocean. On a perfect day completing some aspects of confined water in a shallow bay can be fun and exciting, but when you are practicing and being expected to ‘master’ Rescue skills such as ‘administrating rescue breaths to an unresponsive diver at the surface whilst towing that diver’ the guaranteed calm, clear conditions a swimming pool offers is necessary both for the initial introduction and further practice required to meet the standard expected of a Rescue diver.

Shallow bays are not ideal if there is any wind, waves, poor visibility or other environmental conditions that will negatively affect the conditions whilst these skills are being mastered.

We initially introduce skills basic to complex, before putting those skills together. Once a Rescue diver student has mastered these complex skills we can then add more variations such as open water environment.

Our swimming pool is purpose built for scuba diving and offer you the best possible opportunity on your way to becoming a Rescue diver.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best. Choose QUALITY. Choose FUN DIVERS BALI.


Open Water Training

The morning sessions on Day 2 & 3 of the Rescue Diver course are scheduled out on the open water dives. You will be asked to repeat the skills mastered in confined water the previous afternoon. We will also introduce some additional skills during Day 2. They include:

  • Underwater search patterns using a compass

  • Missing diver procedures

  • Response from shore to a responsive but distressed diver

  • Exiting an unresponsive diver from ocean onto beach

  • First Aid for Pressure related injuries and Oxygen Administration

  • Response from the shore to unresponsive diver on the surface

  • In water rescue breathing techniques

  • Exiting an unresponsive diver from pool and shore

Rescue Scenarios

Once all Rescue exercises and performance requirements have been met the final test before being certified as a Rescue Diver is to the Rescue Scenarios. These are conducted off our shore dive sites, and are set up to be as realistic as possible. All the training of the previous 3 days is put together.


Scenario 1 – Unresponsive Diver Underwater

Search for and locate a missing diver during an accident simulation bringing a diver simulating unresponsiveness to the surface using controlled positive buoyancy.

Scenario 2 – Unresponsive Diver at the Surface

Effectively respond to an unresponsive, non breathing diver during an accident simulation. Includes in water rescue breathing, removing equipment, exiting and providing CPR.
