Diver Stress & Rescue Koh Lanta

Help to Save a Life

Stress & Rescue Diver... Change The Way You Dive

The SSI Diver Stress & Rescue Diver course on Koh Lanta is both a challenging and rewarding course which will change the way you look at diving forever.

You will learn not only how to spot and deal with problems both underwater and on the surface calmly and with confidence, you will learn valuable self-rescue skills and develop a new sense of awareness of any potential problems with other divers around you.

Rescue Diver Course on Koh Lanta with Dive & Relax

You will learn how to deal with leg cramps, tired divers, stress, uncontrolled panic in others, how to deal with unconscious and non-breathing divers, how to deliver emergency care and administer emergency oxygen.

Search for Missing Divers

You'll also learn how to search for missing divers, recover casualties, and how to deal with marine life injuries and other accidents and problems which may occur on a boat such as a bad fall, severe bleeding, spinal injuries, broken bones, shock and many others.

Emergency First Aid

An integral part of this course is being able to deliver emergency first aid, and this is taught in the emergency first aid SSI React Right course which must be completed before beginning your Stress & Rescue Diver course, unless you already hold a similar qualification in emergency first aid from another organisation.

The training you will receive will enable you to respond correctly to a life-threatening emergency and help to keep a victim alive and manage an incident until professional medical help arrives.

Before you start the Diver Stress & Rescue course, you must be certified as an SSI Advanced Adventurer (or equivalent, e.g. PADI Advanced Open Water Diver) and we recommend that you have at least 20 dives and are reasonably comfortable in the water, with good buoyancy.

Are you ready for the Diver Stress & Rescue Course?

If you've not dived for a while then we recommend doing at least one day diving with us to Koh Haa, Koh Rok, or the Bida islands.

Are you Fit to Dive?

Whilst scuba diving is a very safe activity, it is important to know that you are fit to dive and that you do not have any fitness or medical conditions that could increase your risk of an accident underwater.

If you answer 'yes' to any of the medical questions, please print the entire form and take to your family doctor who will assess your fitness to dive and issue a medical statement which we must see before you start diving.
