Rescue Diver Course

Rescue Scuba Diving Training in South Florida

Challenge Yourself and your Dive Skills

Scuba divers describe the Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

How does a Force-E Rescue Diver course work? 
We offer PADI, SSI, and SDI/TDI courses year round with experienced instructors to guide you through your certification process. Group classes consist of 4 people or more and we have set class dates throughout the year (see below). If the group classes don’t work for your schedule, consider a semi-private (2-3 people) or private class (1 person) where you set the dates and the instructor works with your schedule.

What scuba gear will you use?

In the Force-E Rescue Diver course, you use basic scuba gear including a regulator, buoyancy control device, dive computer and tank. We recommend students use or purchase their own mask, fins, snorkel and wetsuit for the course to assure comfort and familiarity with your gear. When you enroll in a Force-E course, students receive a 10% discount towards any purchase in store while they are training. Along with this gear you will also be using some speciality items. You will need a pocket mask to practice in-water resuscitation and during exercises, you’ll work with an oxygen unit, floats, marker buoys and perhaps CPR mannequins. Your Instructor will explain the equipment that you need and may suggest additional gear, such as your own first aid kit, which will be useful throughout your diving career.
