PADI Rescue Diver Course

At Chindonan Dive Resort, Coron Bay, Palawan

During the Rescue Diver course, you will learn about responding to diver stress, anxiety and panic. You will also develop your rescue skills via in-water rescue techniques & administering rescue breathes and conducting CPR. This course is a pre-requisite for those looking to become Divemasters.
