SDI Rescue Diver

The ability and confidence to provide aid and assistance to another person is the true measure of a qualified rescue diver. There are an almost infinite number of scenarios that can require a practiced response to help another diver in trouble. Diving is conducted in a variety of settings, each with their own specific situations that can dictate how we interact to provide that help. How a diver deals with these situations can mean the difference between a smooth learned response to stress that neutralizes the problem… or allows it to escalate into panic or survival lessons.
