Our previous students told us that the Rescue Diver Course was the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they have 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.
At Aloha Diving we focus on the diffusion of stress. We teach how scuba dives should be conducted so that everyone has a good time in a comfortable and safe environment where stress is not a factor. We will also train you to deal with a situation should it arise – hopefully you will never have to. A good Stress Rescue Diver recognizes the situations in which stress can occur amongst different personality types and the signs and symptoms of stress should it arise. They are able to deal with stress within themselves and are thus available to assist other divers who are not as experienced. After completing a Stress & Rescue course you will be a SSI Stress and Rescue Diver. If a scuba diving accident were to occur whilst you were around you would have the knowledge to co-ordinate resources and ensure the appropriate actions are taken. Stress is a major contributor to rescue situations and diving accidents. Through this course you will learn accident prevention, as well as how to handle problem situations if they occur. The course runs three days in which you will participate in academic and in-water sessions in the pool and in the open water. As a prerequisite for certification you need to have a valid CPR, First Aid & Oxygen Provider certificate.
The SSI React Right course provides scuba divers with the skills required to respond to emergency situations. This course is also important competencies for day-to-day life outside of work as well. Being qualified in React Right First Aid will give you the skills to manage an accident scene and provide essential first aid. Accidents and illnesses happen every day. Also SSI and other training agencies require a valid First Aid and CPR Certificate as a prerequisite for the Diver Stress & Rescue certification. By completing the SSI React Right course you can give important care to those in need. The skills learnt in this program will give you the confidence to assist an injured or sick colleague, friend, family member or even a total stranger in a time of real need. It is a self-rewarding qualification that is helpful to all people.
