|Stress and Rescue|
We consider rescue skills to be an essential part of every diver’s education. The SSI Stress & Rescue Course builds confidence by making you comfortable with your ability to assess and handle diving emergencies. Equally as important, Stress & Rescue explains the factors that contribute to diving emergencies, including what causes stress and panic, and how to identify and avoid them all together. Learn what to do to prevent an emergency and keep you and your buddy from getting into trouble. Even if you are comfortable with your ability to keep yourself out of trouble, knowing what to do in an emergency situation may save yours or another diver’s life some day. The number one response from divers, new and veteran, is that they feel a new sense of confidence after this course.
The Stress and Rescue Course consists of classroom, pool, and open water dives. There is a self-study text and study questions that are completed prior to course work. The classroom session usually takes place on a Wednesday night, the pool session the following Saturday morning, and two open water ocean dives that Sunday. The course price is $150 plus text kit for $39.95. The optional SSI Stress and Rescue Certification Card is $35. Prerequisites: You do not need to be current in CPR/First Aid to take the course, but it is required for processing of certification.
