SSI Speciality Course: Diver Stress & Rescue

“Be prepared for those unexpected emergencies.”

Stress is a major contributor to rescue situations and diving accidents.  Through this course you will learn accident prevention, as well as how to handle problem situations if they occur.

The program is about avoiding, recognising and solving problems on the surface and underwater.

The course runs for between two and four days in which you will participate in academic and in-water sessions in the pool and in the open water.  As a prerequisite for certification you need to have a valid CPR & First Aid Provider certificate.
