Rescue training is one of your next steps in continuing your SCUBA education.
It is not unusual to hear a diver say the Rescue Course is the most challenging and rewarding class they have ever taken.
This class will help you to become a better buddy and overall better diver, where you will learn to prevent and manage problems in the water as well as obtain valuable skills to help you become more confident in the water.
You also need to have CPR and First Aid training within the past 24 months. UWC always has a CPR/First Aid class scheduled a week or two before every Rescue Class for your convenience. Check our schedule!
All students must be registered with our Dive Center in order to get access to student materials. Even if you are not sure when you want to take the class yet, registering is free and will save you a step later on. Click HERE to register now!
Lastly, all scuba diving classes require a current medical release (it expires every 12 months). All questions must be answered with a fully written YES or NO. If any answer is a YES, please have your physician fill out page 2 and bring it with you on the day of your class. If all the answers are NO, you do not need a physician's signature.
Take time to read it ahead of class so you have the chance to make any appointments with your physician, if needed.
You can find the most current version of the Scuba Medical Release here.
When filling out the student form for your class, you will have the chance to tell us which dates work best for you. If there is still availability for that particular class, we'll reserve your spot and you are all set! In case the class you choose is already full, our staff will call you to schedule to a different class instead.
Classes have a maximum amount of students allowed.
