The Course


Haven’t conducted a scuba rescue or practiced those rescue skills lately? Feeling a bit rusty on assisting other divers in need? The Rescue Refresher program is just what you need to brush up on your knowledge and skills. A Scuba Frisco Instructor will get you in the water having fun and feeling comfortable tuning up those little used skills. It’s quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next scuba course or get ready for adventure on a diving vacation.




Any certified Rescue Diver, Master Scuba Diver or Divemaster regardless of certifying agency, who needs a refresher, pre-travel update, pre-assessment for a pro level course or an upgrade from Junior Rescue Diver diver can complete a Rescue Refresher.

*Your Rescue Diver certification does not expire. Participation in Rescue Refresher is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your scuba rescue knowledge and skills.

The Learning

During a short class session you'll review:

  • Fundamentals of diver stress and what causes diving accidents.

  • Identifying equipment problems.

  • Review the basic steps of CPR and AED use.

  • Review the use of emergency oxygen systems.

Then, during a pool session you'll review and practice responding to:

  • Tired and stressed divers.

  • Panicked divers.

  • Unconscious divers.

Important Medical Information


All student divers are required to complete the PADI/RSTC Medical Statement Participant Record form. If you can answer "YES" to one or more of the questions in the Divers Medical Questionnaire section of this form, then you are required to obtain a physician's release, without conditions or restrictions, before participating in any in-water component of the course. Please read the complete details and download the form here.


If you have a copy of this form signed by a physician within 12 months prior to the expected completion date of your course, and your medical history has not changed, then you may provide a copy of it to your instructor. Otherwise, you will need to complete a new form.
