PADI Rescue Diver Workshop in Bangkok

In August 2017, PADI Members gathered in Bangkok to attend the PADI Rescue Diver Workshop. The purpose of the workshop was to refresh and further develop the skills required to teach the Rescue Diver course. It also gave attendees the opportunity to raise any queries they had and speak with PADI Staff directly.

As part of the workshop, PADI representatives gave updates on the revised Rescue Diver course materials, as well as a demonstration of relevant digital products and the online processing system.

This was followed by the group observing and practising skills required when teaching the Rescue Diver course. Attendees also took part in an introduction to freediving under the instruction of PADI Freediver Instructor Ploy Malaiwongs.

Speaking about the event, PADI Territory Director, Tim Hunt, said:

“Thanks to everyone involved in the PADI Rescue Diver workshop in Bangkok. We believe it’s important that PADI Members feel confident in the skills and materials required to deliver courses and this workshop provided us with an opportunity to support this. It was great to see so many enthusiastic members in Bangkok and we look forward to hosting similar workshops in the future.”

Learn the latest techniques for demonstrating rescue diver skills to your students

The key to conducting successful PADI Rescue Diver training is the ability to confidently demonstrate the proper skills, but this is often easier said than done – even by many PADI Pros. This is especially true when it comes to demonstrating how to rescue an unconscious diver at the surface. And, if you’re teaching other PADI Professionals how to demonstrate rescue skills when they teach, proper technique is even more important.

Now you have the opportunity to practice your teaching techniques in a PADI Rescue Workshop. In this workshop, you’ll learn to demonstrate rescue skills to Rescue Diver, Divemaster and Open Water Scuba Instructor candidates, including:

  • Techniques for teaching rescue of an unconscious diver at the surface
  • The latest techniques for removing weights and adding buoyancy to an injured diver
  • The best way to check for breathing, use a pocket mask effectively and give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation

You’ll also get a preview of the changes to the PADI Rescue Diver evaluation as it pertains to establishing buoyancy, coming in 2014.
