Prepare & Build Confidence

Become a PADI Rescue Diver

The PADI Rescue Diver course will be the most challenging, most rewarding course you've ever taken. Why? Because you'll 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'll 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.

CORE's Rescue Diver training program includes Emergency First Response First Aid & CPR training as well as the PADI Emergency Oxygen Provider specialty. Become a more confident diver, a better dive buddy, and prepare yourself to respond in an emergency by becoming a PADI Rescue Diver today!
