The PADI Rescue is the highest non-professional PADI certification you can gain and is the most challenging yet rewarding course you will take. The course is designed to prepare you to prevent and manage the most common problems that can occur in and out of the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others when they need it.
