Rescue SCUBA Diver

  • Dutch Springs 2433 Hanoverville Road Bethlehem, PA, 18020 United States (map)

The NAUI motto is "Dive Safety through Education," and the Rescue SCUBA Diver course will increase your safety skills from what you already learned as a NAUI SCUBA Diver. The Rescue SCUBA Diver course is designed to equip certified divers with additional self-rescue skills and to enable them to effectively intervene if their dive buddy experiences problems while diving. 

What You Will Learn
This course trains divers in the knowledge and skills needed to manage risks and effectively handle limited in-water problems and diving emergencies. Included are: assists, transports, surface rescues, and rescues from depth involving both boat - and shore- based skin and scuba divers. Graduates are considered competent to perform assists and rescues in open water provided the diving site and diving situations approximate those of the course. Graduates may use this certification to meet the prerequisite for the NAUI Training Assistant specialty course, NAUI leadership courses, and NAUI Instructor course.

Prerequisites for Rescue SCUBA Diver
Age: Minimum is 15 years by the water phase of the course
Certification/Experience/Knowledge: Certification as a NAUI SCUBA Diver or the equivalent is required and a current CPR/FA course certification is required.
