The PADI Rescue Diver Course with DIVE WIMBLEDON
The PADI Rescue Diver course is one of the most popular and enjoyable courses we offer and the aim of the PADI 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 Rescue scenarios.
We also offer the PADI Rescue Referral option with overseas completion where you can complete the theory and pool skills here in London and the open water scenarios on your own holiday abroad or on holiday with Dive Wimbledon.
- PADI offers a variety of home-study materials for the PADI Rescue Diver course - Elearning or PADI Rescue Diver Manual. With the Elearning option you will complete more of the home study before the course and will spend less time in the classroom.
- Complete 10 scuba diving PADI rescue exercises in shallow water in London

The open water dives take place at Wraysbury Lake just outside London or on one of our overseas Egyptian holidays. In the summer months the whole course takes place at the lake over two days.
- Certification as a PADI Rescue Diver
