To obtain your Rescue Diver certification, you must also be EFR (Emergency First Responder) certified. With Best Cenote Dives, you can pass 2 certifications with the same instructor and in less than a week, your field of vision will expand.

EFR: 1 day

The EFR course is there to give you the skills to administer first aid out of the water. Knowing how to react to an emergency during a dive is important, but you also need to know the basic rules of first aid. You have to be able to deal with any accidents that happen on the boat, or continue to assist the victim when you take him out of the water while waiting for emergency rescue services.

Rescue: 3 days

It’s time to open your field a bit more. When you’re a certified Rescue Diver you will start to see your scuba dives as more than fun dives. This course is designed to give you the tools to help you avoid accidents and react to problems. These problems range from a person panicking on the surface, an unconscious diver underwater to what to do in case of missing diver.

Whatever happens, when you sign up for your EFR + RESCUE, you sign up for one of the most challenging and rewarding diving courses.

For the Rescue Diver certification, student divers must:

  • complete the five chapters of Knowledge Development and Review.
  • Demonstrate, in a protected environment or in a natural environment, all exercises from the self-rescue review.
  • Demonstrate, in the wild, rescue drills 1 to 10

Course: The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver. If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course. You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During a practical session, and two optional scuba dives, you’ll: • Discuss managing oxygen exposure. • Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank. • Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.

Course: Having scuba tanks on your back isn’t a requirement for exploring the underwater world. Many scuba divers have discovered the joy of mounting cylinders on their sides. Sidemount diving gives you flexibility and streamlining options. Plus, you don’t have to walk with heavy cylinders on your back – just enter the water, clip them on and go. Sound interesting? Sign up for the PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty course. If you’re a PADI Open Water Diver who is at least 15 years old, you can enroll in a PADI Sidemount Diver course. Along with learning about the many benefits of diving with a sidemount configuration, during one confined water and three open water scuba dives you’ll learn how to: • Properly assemble and configure sidemount scuba diving equipment. • Trim your weight system and sidemount gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water. • Manage gas by switching second stages as planned, if wearing two cylinders. • Respond correctly to potential problems when sidemount diving.

Course: Caverns exist in many areas where scuba divers venture – from freshwater springs to volcanic island walls and limestone coasts. In these locations you’ll find large, dark spaces that seem incredibly inviting, yet are potentially dangerous. The PADI Cavern Diver Specialty course gives you the knowledge and skills to explore caverns correctly – allowing you to enter far enough for adventure, but staying within the light zone for an easy exit to open water. You need to be PADI Advanced Open Water Diver who is at least 18 years old to enroll in the Cavern Diver course. Ready for a challenge? You’ll complete four scuba dives with the first focused on line handling, reel use and emergency procedures outside a cavern; and the next three dives put your new skills to use inside a cavern. You’ll also learn about: • Other specialized equipment for cavern diving, such as lights and redundant breathing systems. • Avoiding disorientation and anti-silting techniques. • Dive planning, including depth and distance limits and air management for cavern diving.

Course: The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course. If you’ve earned the PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher, and you’re at least 15 years old, you can enroll in the Deep Diver course. Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your instructor, you’ll go over: • Specialized deep diving equipment. • Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control. • Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.

Course: Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level. PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 10 years old, are eligible to take the Peak Performance Buoyancy course. During two scuba dives, you’ll learn how to: • Determine the exact weight you need, so you’re not too light or too heavy. • Trim your weight system and scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water. • Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water. • Hover effortlessly in any position – vertical or horizontal.

Fewer than two percent of divers ever achieve this rating. When you flash your Master Scuba Diver card, people know that you’ve spent time underwater in a variety of environments and had your share of dive adventures. Every diver, who is at least 12 years old, should aim for Master Scuba Diver.
