Rescue divers also learn how to respond to a variety of illnesses and injuries, such as helping someone who is choking, handling a possible spinal injury, and applying bandages and splints. 

Rescue diver courses can take place over two to three days, with the morning usually reserved for theory and the afternoon for practical skills and in-water work. Students typically need to provide their own diving equipment. Some courses may require current certification in first aid and CPR if they are not offered as part of the course. After completing the course, students receive a certification that is valid for life.
