THE RESCUE DIVER COURSE
This course is the minimum level to which ACUC recommends all divers should be trained to. You must already be certified as an Advanced Diver. The course will train you to recognise diving problems and emergencies before the occur, and if they occur anyway, then you will learn also how to handle these problems and emergencies.
Although not mandatory, ACUC highly recommends that candidates to this course also take the specialties of First Aid Provider and Emergency Oxygen Provider. Minimum age is 16 years old.
As a Rescue Diver, you may enter the ACUC Professional levels if you wish (See “Turn Professional”), or continue on to obtain the “Master Plus Diver” or the “Specialties Plus Diver” rating (see the ACUC Training Ladder chart).
You can see the ACUC standards, course contents and requirements for this course in this PDF document.
Once you obtain this level (Rescue Diver), you may take if you wish any ACUC specialty, besides the above mentioned for Open Water and Advanced Divers, such as:
- Full Cave Diving
- Teaching Assistant (not to be confused with Assistant Instructor, which is an ACUC professional level)
- Underwater Guide, etc...
