First aid and CPR are good skills for anyone involved in adventure sports – just in case. And, you need these skills for the PADI Rescue Diver course.

• Primary Care – includes CPR, resuscitation the use of automatic defibrillators.
• Secondary Care – focuses on first aid skills, such as injury and illness assessment.
The courses can be taken together or separately, proof of CPR training is required to take the Secondary Care course.

These relaxed but informative courses are open to anyone and are essential training for divers and non divers alike. Each course takes around half a day to complete.
