FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What would be the exercises?
Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond. During rescue scenarios, you put into practice your knowledge and skills. Topics include: Self rescue, recognizing and managing stress in other diver, emergency management and equipment, rescuing panicked and unresponsive divers.
Can I work in the dive industry with a level 3 rescue diver certification?
The rescue diver certification is not considered to be on a professional level yet. In this condition you can not obtain insurance, so can not work in the water. To work in the dive industry, you need to obtain your level 4 dive master certification, which is the next step, almost there!
