Why take a course?

The Rescue Scout course is another specialization that allows you to gain new skills and broaden your diving horizons with very important rescue skills. The classes are tailored to the age and abilities of the participants so that they can learn and have fun at the same time.

What will you learn?

In this energetic and dynamic activity participants learn to plan their dives and call for help if something goes wrong. They also learn what are the risks associated with diving. In the water, young trainees learn how to act if their mask or fins are lost, practise the emergency drop of the weight belt, as well as helping their partner – from sharing the gas through towing to the surface.
