Rescue / First Aid

PADI Emergency First Response / SSI React Right

This is a basic course for emergency care and lifesaving skills that is great for both divers and non-divers. Emergency First Response/React Right training focuses on building confidence in lay rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency.

Emergency First Response/React Right course meets the CPR and first aid training requirements for the Rescue Diver course and all professional level ratings. EFR/React Right course can be completed in half a day.

The course includes topics such as basic life support, CPR and rescue breathing, shock management, spinal injury, serious bleeding management and basic first aid procedures.

Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a non-stressful learning environment.

PADI Rescue Diver / SSI Diver Stress & Rescue

Scuba divers describe the Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem solving skills until they become second nature.

The Rescue Diver Course is a 3 day program which develops your knowledge and skills so you can effectively perform diver assists and rescues, manage diving accident situations and render first aid. Various rescue scenarios are experienced in both shallow water and open water environment.

The Rescue Course covers:

  • Self-rescue and diver stress
  • Emergency management and equipment considerations
  • Diving first aid
  • Swimming and nonswimming assists
  • Underwater problems
  • Missing diver procedures
  • Surfacing the unconscious diver
  • Panicked diver response
  • In-water rescue breathing protocols
  • Egress (exits) with an injured or unconscious diver
  • Dive accident scenarios
  • First aid procedures for pressure related accidents
  • In-water artificial respiration
To become a Rescue Diver you should be certified by an internationally recognized organization in CPR and First Aid within the last 2 years. Physically the Rescue Diver program can be challenging so a reasonable level of fitness is desirable.

The Rescue Diver program is an important step in expanding your knowledge and experience as a diver. PADI Rescue Diver/SSI Diver Stress & Rescue certification is also a prerequisite for all leadership programs.

    positive review  En vacances à Gili air, sur recommandation d’un ami nous nous sommes rendu à Gili dive pour faire un baptême et nous ne regrettons vraiment pas! La plongée était juste parfaite, en petit groupe nous avons pu bénéficier des explications en français, ce qui nous a permis de profiter au maximum une fois en mer ! Merci encore à l’équipe !

    positive review  There are quite a few dive schools to choose from in Gili Trawangan so choosing one can be a little daunting. I'm so lucky and glad I chose Gili Divers as their staff is top notch. Friendly and beyond knowledgeable, they immediately make you feel welcome and are happy to answer any questions and concerns so as to maximize exactly what your looking for. I was on a tight schedule and were even able to accommodate me so that I could complete my open water certification. I had the pleasure of having Felicia as my instructor and really enjoyed the time learning about the equipment, time in the pool, and especially the dives. She definitely prepared me for any possibilities in the ocean so when my mouth piece fell out mid dive, I didn't even flinch and recovered it just as previously instructed. Really enjoyed my time here on the Island but especially time with Gili Divers, who even have underwater photographers ( thanks Jasper!l who can document your dive experience , I will definitely remember this and can't wait to come back.

    positive review  We did our dive master training in Gili Divers on Air and couldn't be happier. We assisted courses, had theory lessons, pool sessions and lots and lots of great dives. Annie and Greg run the shop with great care and joy, and it was always a pleasure just hanging out in the shop (especially with the cats and later also kittens!!). It didn't feel like going to work but more like being with family, an amazing and wierd diving family! The team has great knowledge about everything from diving equipment and different fish behaviour to how to guide the dive sites according to your level. We also really appreciate their respect for the marine life and the way they pass their knowledge on to others. One of the best things, apart from everything we learned and all the dives we did, is the laughs we shared. We had so many inside jokes that it's actually hard to now function around other people. Reading this, it's easy to understand why this was our third time back, and why we are already planning to return.

    positive review  Wir sind absolut begeistert! Super nettes Team das alle Sprachen spricht und auch schwäbisch versteht 🙂 Für Wünsche und Fragen hat immer jemand ein offenes Ohr und man fühlt sich direkt aufgenommen und wohl. Vor allem was uns wichtig war, dass es keine Massenveranstaltungen sind sondern in kleinen überschaubaren Gruppen abläuft. Mit Phil unseren Guide aus Österreich sind wir seit dem ersten Tauchgang unterwegs und es macht immer wieder Spaß gemeinsam raus zu fahren und abzutauchen. Eine große Besonderheit ist auch das nach Interessen gefragt wird und die jeweiligen Tauchspots dementsprechend ausgewählt werden, wie zb. heute Turtle Heaven 🙂

  • positive review  Eigentlich wollte ich nur einen Test Dive machen und es hat mir so gut gefallen, dass ich ich mich entschlossen habe, doch meine Tauchlizens ( Open Water) zu machen :). Ich war zuvor noch nie tauchen und alle, die es vorhaben oder darüber nachdenken, denen kann ich es nur empfehlen. Es ist ein atemberaubendes Erlebnis! Annie ist eine super Tauchlehrerin, sie hat alles mit Ruhe, Gelassenheit Einfühlungsvermögen und Humor erklärt. Ich hab mich immer gut aufgehoben gefühlt und ihren Fähigkeiten beim tauchen vertraut. Sie liebt das tauchen und genau das lebt sie auch und gibt es an ihre Tauchschüler weiter, was mich sehr beeindruckt hat. Eine super tolle Erfahrung, würde ich jederzeit wieder in dieser Tauchschule machen. Tausend Dank für diese unvergessliche Erfahrung und alles Gute für euch💗! LG, Mareike
