Rescue Diver Certification

Salty Endeavors firmly believes all divers which actively participate in the sport should be Rescue Diver certified. Do not be confused, this is a stressful and tiring class. If you don’t finish the day exhausted and a little bit sore, then we did not do our job well enough.

But completion of the Rescue Diver course comes with a sense of pride, satisfaction, and confidence. Pride in that you are now a Rescue Diver and are prepared to help out your dive buddies should an emergency event arise. Satisfaction because you have the knowledge and skills to act in the event of an emergency. And finally confidence because if / when you are put into a stressful situation you are capable of handling it with ease.

Who is the Rescue Diver of your group? Will it be you?
