PADI Rescue Diver Course in Peoria

Be the best buddy you can be…

Serious fun! Do Dive In’s Rescue Diver course makes the serious subject of accident prevention and management enjoyable and rewarding. In conjunction with the PADI Emergency First Response course and the DAN Oxygen Provider course, you will be prepared to deal with both diving and non-diving emergencies as a first responder. Rescue training expands your knowledge of diving, increases your level of diving skills and self confidence, and makes you more aware of what is happening around you in the diving environment.
