If you take only one specialty course in you diving career, take this one. Learn to manage your own stress underwater, and to help a buddy or diver in distress. Emergencies can occur when you least expect them. The Stress & Rescue class will teach you the skills needed to prevent emergencies, and to respond to them should they occur.
During the pool and open water sessions of this class you will apply the academic information gained through the online course materials, and the real life situations described by expert instructors.
This course is required for Master Diver Certification. Learning objectives include:
Study Material: $90 - SSI Digital Diver Stress & Rescue Kit
Prerequisites: CPR/First Aid and Oxygen Provider*
Minimum Age: 12 years old
In order to complete your Stress & Rescue certification, you will need to complete three open water certification dives under the direct supervision of a qualified instructor. Your instructor will evaluate your skills as you apply what you have learned during your academic and pool training to an open water environment. You will also learn practical lessons that can only be gained through real-world experience.
To complete these dives, you may join us at the Blue Hole, in Santa Rosa, New Mexico, on a private basis at the Aurora Reservoir, or on one of our many Group Travel options. Check out our open water certification dives page to learn more about our training site options.
