What is provided by the shop?

This is a PADI specialty that we teach along with Rescue, but can be taken as a specialty course that counts toward your Master Scuba Diver. Come into the shop to sign up for this life saving course. We are also doing Emergency First Response CPR training with this course. Both of these courses are needed for Rescue Course. If you would like to take just one of these courses as you already have current CPR or would like to just take the EFR portion that is an option also. Come into the shop today to sign up and get your course materials.
