Today I am going to talk about the rescue diver course. A few years ago I took the rescue course and after I completed it I felt I should have taken it much sooner than when I did. In the NAUI Open water course, students are taught the basic principles of the scuba rescue, in the rescue course this simple rescue is expanded.
Many people always ask what is there to do after they finish their open water certification class. The simple answer is a lot. The not so simple answer involves all of the many different courses that are offered after certification. The next step in anyone's progression is the advanced diver course.
I have been a dive leader for 3 years, 2 as a divemaster and 1 as an instructor and I could not be happier about going this route. People always ask why to go into dive leadership, some people look into it for the wrong reasons while others look into it for the right reasons. Dive leadership has many different certifications but the two most commonly certified are divemaster and instructor, if you choose to go for these levels you must be ready for hard work, determination, the successes that come and the failures that come as well.
Are you tired of long boat rides out to your favorite dive site, do you wish that there was a faster way of getting you into the water? Well, now there is, say goodbye to the boat and say hello to the helicopter. Helicopter diving cuts long boat trips into a fraction of what they used to be, meaning divers get out to the dive site not only quicker but more efficiently.
