Stress & Rescue

Taking the Stress Rescue class will help you become a more confident diver. This specialty is a favorite of all our instructors because of the comfort level you will achieve once you have completed this course.

Stress is a major contributor to rescue situations and diving accidents. This course will teach you accident prevention, as well as how to handle problem situations as they occur. You will become a better diver and buddy, as you learn to watch for situations that can lead to problems.

You will learn the causes and prevention of many diving-related stresses and how to react in an emergency. The open water will be a great way to use your accident management procedures, rescue skills, and effective search patterns.

As part of your Stress Rescue class you will need to complete or show a certificate of a First Aid, CPR, AED & O2 course.
