Learning the art of rescue prevention. Rescue divers are trained to recognize the sign before an incident actually occurs. Prevention is good for us too.
Understanding of the human’s natural responses to stress is essential. Every person reacts differently to stress. You will be well equipped to recognize diver stress. Divers often do not communicate when unwell.
During your training you will have the opportunity to practice rescue techniques in a controlled environment. You’ll realize there is more than one way to act in a rescue situation. The instructor will let you practice as per your abilities and physical endurance. These are simulations, and your instructor will help you achieve your personal goals. Practices may be held in a confined environment at the pool or in an open water environment such as Kahnawake quarry.
During the last step in your rescue training you’ll respond to simulated emergencies from A to Z. Scenarios will be adapted to the students’ abilities. In order to be an efficient rescuer, it’s important to stay within our own limits. These scenarios help in the overall rescue management. All our PADI instructors are supervised by a working Paramedic.
