Who Should Take This Class?

Scuba divers describe the Diver Stress & Rescue course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed.

During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem-solving skills until they become second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning. SSI(Junior) Adventure Divers who are at least 12 years old and have completed the Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive may enroll in a Diver Stress & Rescue course.

You also need to have React Right Program training within the past 24 months. You can complete this training during the Diver Stress & Rescue course. Your instructor may also offer the SSI Emergency Oxygen Provider specialty diver course at the same time.

What You’ll Learn

The SSI Diver Stress & Rescue course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. 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 divers
  • Emergency management and equipment
  • Rescuing panicked divers
