JUNIOR RESCUE DIVER Prevent problems and manage them if they occur.

The PADI Junior Rescue Diver Course with DIVE WIMBLEDON

The PADI Junior Rescue Diver course is one of the most popular and enjoyable courses we offer. The aim of the PADI Junior Rescue Diver course is to make you a better and safer diver and buddy. The emphasis is on avoiding problems but we also practise the correct response to a variety of possible scuba diving emergency scenarios.

We also offer the PADI Junior Rescue Referral option with overseas completion where you can complete the theory and pool skills here in London and the Rescue scenarios in open water on your own holiday abroad or on holiday with Dive Wimbledon. Enquire for more information
