Stress & Resuce Diver Class Be the best buddy you can be with Bamboo Reef's Ultimate Diver Stress and Rescue Course

Have you ever wanted to become more confident and more comfortable while diving?  Have you ever felt helpless when a buddy needed assistance?  Have you ever found yourself needing assistance?  Would you know what to do if your buddy suddenly became unconscious during a dive?  Would you know what to do if your buddy stopped breathing, or was in cardiac arrest?  Would you know how to help a fellow diver who had been stricken with a diving related illness?

Our rescue training courses are designed to be a challenging and realistic experience which provides the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively deal with stressful scenarios.  This is the first step for anyone considering becoming a dive professional.
