Help Save a Life
Take the SSI React Right emergency first aid course and prepare yourself for the challenging and rewarding Diver Stress & Rescue course here on Koh Lanta.
As you complete more scuba diving courses, you’ll gain knowledge, skills, and confidence that help you to deal with diving related problems, helping you to look after yourself and your buddies.
A key part of being able to help other people is being able to provide emergency first aid to an injured or sick person.
This is even more important when diving, often in remote areas with no emergency healthcare or hospitals close by.
A pre-requisite for the SSI Stress and Rescue Course, React Right will give you the skills and confidence to respond to diving emergencies.
What's Involved ?
The SSI React Right course teaches both divers and non divers how to deal with life threatening problems and how to help maintain a person's life until professional medical help arrives.
This hands-on emergency first response course uses a combination of academic sessions and practical training scenarios to give you the tools and confidence you need to provide emergency first aid.
By the time you are certified, you will be able to act as an emergency first responder, providing first aid, maintaining an open airway, and providing CPR. You’ll also learn how to deal with serious bleeding, burns, fractures, allergic reactions, seizures and head injuries.
If the React Right course is taken along with the Diver Stress and Rescue course, we’ll also teach you how to correctly prepare medical oxygen equipment and how to effectively administer medical oxygen to patients.

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.
- Download and read the Diver Medical Questionnaire.
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.
