How Many Students In The Course?
We are Proud to Offer SEMI PRIVATE RESCUE COURSES!
Our courses are smaller allowing us to focus on your every need along the way of becoming a great rescue diver. Rescue Course however, is best when taken with a small group of divers. If you happen to be the only student we will supply other divers to participate!
How Long Is The Course?
Our courses are performance based. This means we have no time limit on any of our courses. We will work with any student until they are 100% comfortable with the skills involved. You will leave our class feeling confident and ready to take on your next diving adventure. But.. for scheduling purposes, the Rescue Diver Certification Course averages (2) days long.
