GUE Rescue Primer


overview schedule & prerequisites costs

Scuba diving is a safe outdoor activity with low accident rates, but as with all activities, participants should be prepared to handle emergencies and perform rescues to assist team members. The awareness of your ability to help will increase your confidence and make your dives safer and more enjoyable.

GUE’s Rescue Primer is a course designed to teach divers basic rescue techniques relevant to scuba diving emergencies.

Being able to prevent or handle stressful situations and emergencies underwater is one of the most meaningful skills you will ever learn, so the Rescue Primer should be high on every diver’s to-do list.

This course is recommended to all who are planning to pursue diving at any level. This primer is best taken after the Navigation Primer, as it requires competence in navigational skills.

Course outcomes include, but are not limited to: assisting distressed divers on the surface and underwater, including unconscious diver recovery; missing diver protocols; surface management of a diving emergency; and diving BLS skills for DCI.
