Stress & Rescue Diver – Scuba Xàbia (Jávea)

Stress & Rescue

Stress is the major contributor to rescue situations and diving accidents. Through this course you will learn to recognise and prevent accidents and to handle problems in certain situations if they occur both on the surface and under water.

Recognising stress and treating it as soon as possible, it is a critical component for the prevention of diving accidents. Diving emergencies are usually the result of a series of small mistakes, rather than a big mistake, that require training and practice in order to recognise and correct it.

The objective of the Stress Diver & Rescue is to provide you with the detailed knowledge, skills and experience necessary to quickly recognise and correct stress and emergency situations in different conditions and diving environments.
