Master Rescue Diver
          You are about to participate in one of the most valuable and rewarding courses you can do in your diving career. Rescue divers learn not only how to look after themselves in the water, but how to be observant of those divers around them so that small issues can be noticed and dealt with. This could be simple anxiety or equipment problems in many cases and the rescue diver has the skills and knowledge to observe and help. As we will discuss further, rescue is an important part of all higher levels of training. Divemasters and Instructors go through various practice sessions to hone their rescue skills that were first learnt on this course. When you get to deep and technical diving the rescue skills learnt here are invaluable. So the information and skills in the course will help you through the rest of your diving career.
          As a Rescue Diver there are a lot of skills that need to be learnt along with some understanding of general knowledge. For many divers some of these skills may already be mastered. In this section we provide information on both foundation skills and general knowledge that will assist you as a Rescue Diver and some may also be useful in day to day life. Often when analysing a serious accident the root cause can be traced back to a simple error. A knot that was intended to hold a heavy object failing at a critical moment due to being tied incorrectly. A vessel crashing into a wharf because someone does not act quickly enough when the master of the vessel orders fenders to be put overboard. For some, these things may be second nature, but for others these foundation skills need to be learnt. The next few pages will get you started on the RAID Master Rescue Diver journey. Here we will outline some introductory information such as some simple knots rescue divers can use, types of diving where rescue training is invaluable and boating terminology that rescue divers need to know.
