PADI Rescue Course Phuket

The PADI Rescue course, Phuket, is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding courses offered by Super Divers and is just one step away from the Master Scuba Diver certification.


Rescue Course in Phuket With Super Divers

Super Divers PADI Rescue Course, Phuket teaches scuba divers how to identify and prevent dive accidents before they happen. Furthermore, it enables students to participate in simulated real-life scenarios and teaches how to handle such incidents should they occur. Additionally, the course teaches how to become experienced and more confident scuba divers and just one step below the professional level of becoming a PADI Divemaster.

PADI Rescue Diver students in Phuket learn practical skills in the swimming pool to develop confidence and techniques before practicing and using these tools while diving from the dive boat with their PADI instructor, Ultimately, students will become accomplished PADI Rescue Divers.

About the PADI Rescue Course in Phuket

Students taking the PADI Rescue Diver Course in Phuket with Super Divers will take two or three days to complete the course. A prerequisite for this course is to have a current recognized first aid certificate. For guests who already possess a first aid certificate the rescue course will take two days. On the other hand, guests who don’t have one will take the course over three days and will complete the PADI Emergency First Responder Course too, which is a recognized first aid certification covering general and scuba diving first aid procedures.

PADI Rescue Course Phuket

Rescue diver students taking the PADI EFR course with the PADI Rescue Diver course will receive two PADI certifications. The additional cost for the PADI EFR course is only 4,900 THB, including the certification fees. The first day of the three day PADI EFR and Rescue course would be dedicated to earning the PADI first aid certification. Day two would be spent practicing rescue diver skills and techniques in the pool. Finally, the third day would be spend taking three dives from the boat utilizing newly learnt rescue diver skills and knowledge in simulated scenarios, whilst also enjoying the spectacular scuba diving Phuket has to offer.

Additionally, we believe smaller class sizes improve safety while diving primarily because the instructors attention is focused on fewer students, which allows them to spot and prevent any potential problems both early and calmly, before continuing with the dive as normal.

Focused on our guests, not on our competition!

We don’t just meet expectations, we exceed them!

We’re not perfect, but we fix things if they go wrong!

Our customer service comes before profits!

Rescue Diver Course Information


We can start PADI Rescue Diver Courses in Phuket daily throughout the year. Please book early to avoid disappointment. Rather than overbook, which lowers quality, we stop taking new bookings when we’re fully booked.


Students taking the PADI Emergency First Responder Course: The EFR and Rescue course will run over three days. Students will take the PADI EFR Course at the dive center in Patong. The start time can be flexible if required, but normally we’d start the EFR course at around 11:00 am. This course takes between 4 to 6 hours.


All PADI Rescue Course students: The second day for students who have taken the PADI EFR Course, or the first day for those already in possession of a recognized first aid certificate, students should meet at Super Divers in Patong for around 8:00 am. The theory for the rescue course will be covered in the morning. Following a break for lunch, students gear up for a practical session in the swimming pool. Here, they will practice and develop many useful rescue skills and techniques which will arm them with the necessary tools which one day, they may need to call upon to successfully and confidently deal with a life endangering situation, encountered while scuba diving. The final day will be conducted from the boat at either Racha Noi & Yai, or Koh Phi Phi Islands, depending on the schedule. Students will put their newly learned rescue skills and knowledge to the test, with simulated rescue scenarios and situations created by their instructor. Once the course is complete, students will know how to manage and assist in real life rescue situations. Super Divers Phuket insists the instructors assigned to teach the PADI Rescue Courses are highly experienced and have taught many rescue courses in the past, reassuring our students that they have the very best tuition.


Minimum age is 12 years old. Participants must be certified beyond open water level with proof of training in underwater navigation. For example, be certified as a PADI Adventure diver with the navigation dive already completed, or, be certified as a PADI advanced diver, or equivalent. Participants must also have a current (within the previous two years) and recognized first aid certificate, or can complete the PADI Emergency First Responder Course before starting the rescue course. As with all PADI courses, students will need to complete and sign the PADI medical statement before starting their course. (You can view the PADI Medical Statement below).

Amazing experience with Super Divers

I always do a lot of research when picking activities when it comes to holidays, and choosing a dive school was no different. After days of reading reviews, I chose Supers Divers to do my PADI open water course and I have absolutely no regrets.... more.
