Rescue and Emergency Procedures may be one of the most valuable courses any diver can take. The Rescue Diver course is designed to prepare the student for a variety of emergency situations and is centered around both self-rescue and buddy-rescue. Self-rescue skills begin with accident avoidance, dive planning, comfort in the water under stressful situations, and equipment failures. Buddy-rescue skills include missing diver and search protocols, multiple air-sharing situations, lost mask/no visibility situations, assisting tired, panicked, disoriented, or unconscious divers at depth and on the surface, and clear communications.

The student completing this Rescue class will be more comfortable in the water and will be much more alert in preventing small situations from becoming full-fledged emergencies.

The UTD Rescue course is normally conducted over a 2 to 3 day period, and cumulatively involves a minimum of 18 hours of instruction.

This class covers divers equipped in both UTD/DIR/Hogarthian gear and recreational gear.
