PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty Instructor

The PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty is a most practical course to learn and teach. As a diver, to be a part of a team, for example on a rescue dive, there is a feeling of goodwill and many recreational divers are interested to use their scuba diving skills toward something practical and meaningful.

Course content of the PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty emphasizes many skills on different underwater search patterns, rigging and lifting objects and knot tying.

The combination of these skills will give a student the insight of how much planning and organisation is needed to avoid any problems during a search and recovery dive.

During the Search and Recovery Diver Specialty Instructor course, you will conduct dives in an instructional role. On these dives, you will consider organization; not only for fluid conduct of dive activities, but also for the safety of your students’. You will emphasise safety and supervision, particularly, during skills with rigging and lifting an object to the surface.

The knowledge development component of your course needs to be completed, which will really assist your assessment of student performance. Before each dive you will give thorough briefings and incorporate knowledge development from your students’ course, so they may understand how to apply the information to their underwater skills.

The prerequisite of this Specialty Instructor course is to be PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor.

The Search and Recovery Specialty Instructor qualification counts as a pre-requisite instructor specialty towards the Master Scuba Diver Trainer qualification.

Employers view a Master Scuba Diver Trainer as a professional of a variety of interests and one who enjoys teaching their student divers to become proficient recreational divers.
