Stress is a major cause of diving accidents and negatively impacts rescue situations. This program teaches you the skills and knowledge required to recognize and deal with stress, prevent accidents and properly deal with emergency situations encountered by divers. You will earn the SSI Diver Stress and Rescue Specialty certification after completing this program.
- SSI Open Water certification or equivalent
- 12 years of age
Included in the course are:
- SSI Stress & Rescue digital materials
- Online academics (ZOOM)
- Pool training (minimum 4 hours)
The specialty will need to be finished in the Open Water with 3 training dives. For example on one of our San Carlos trips or to Lake Pleasant. Additional cost for this trip applies.
For certification proof of recent training in CPR, First Aid and O2 is needed. We offer that with the SSI React Right course.
