SSI Stress and Rescue Diver Course
Take the next step and become a rescue diver. It’s serious fun!
Best dive center in Koh Lipe! I did my Rescue Diver course and a few fun dives here. Many thanks to my instructor Dan and my divemaster Ris for this awesome experience.
The dive center is close to Sunrise Beach and with their speed boat they can reach every dive spot within a few minutes.Tom S – 5 Star Trip Advisor – Reviewed April 2019

The Rescue Diver Course represents the most challenging and rewarding of the non-professional courses. Building upon what you have already learned in previous diving and EFR or equivalent First Aid courses, this course teaches you how to recognise and prevent diver problems, and how to manage them if they occur.

About the Course
This is the first time as a recreational diver that you have to start thinking about other divers as well as yourself. The course reviews self rescue techniques, rescue of other divers, recognising diver stress or panic in others and the correct way to respond.
We start on dry land reviewing the Rescue Course DVD and accompanying manual. After watch in the DVD you will complete all the knowledge reviews for each chapter. You are also required to make an emergency action plan. Then there is a final exam.
You practice new rescue skills in confined water sessions off the beach. Starting with self rescue you refresh many of the skills from the Open Water Course. Rescue Skills included dealing with tired and panicked divers and responding to both responsive and non responsive divers in trouble.
The Fun Stuff
The last parts of the course are the final scenarios which can be sprung on you at anytime. You will put together all that you have learnt in this course and deal with two final rescue situations. It is a seriously fun course which will transform the way you think about diving!
You can expand your knowledge of emergency equipment by enrolling in our Oxygen Provider Course which can be done alongside your Rescue Course.
