Hi there

I've been looking around trying to find details of what happens on the PADI Rescue Diver course. There isn't much around and websites are pretty cagey.

However, I found this page from somebody's blog:

What alerted me was some kind of 'stress test' where the instructor rips off your mask and reg, turns of your air etc. I did some further investigation and found this vid on youtube called "Rescue Diver_ZoleS feat Kabat" (i can't get the hyperlink to work for some reason)

It's what happens at 5 minutes into the video what concerns me

Is this what happens on the Rescue Diver course?

absolutely not. a croc of $%^& and against nearly every Standards and Procedures of any recreational scuba training agency for that level of course.
