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  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  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

    5 star review  For us GDOA is a Top Dive School with enthusiastic and relaxed people, we started with 1 dive and ended up with 14. Micha, Tait, Christian and Sebastian thanks for the great diving, Anne and Greg for the hospitality. We hope that the damage after the earthquake will not be too bad and that you, as a company, will soon be back in business. Stay strong We will be back July 2019 for even more beautiful dives Nanta and John

  • 5 star review  L accueil est à la hauteur des fonds marin, juste incroyable. Pour les Français demandez Greg, c est le manager, il est a l écoute et fait tout pour mettre à l aise! Avec mes amis nous sommes allé plonger sur Secret Reef et Bounty Wreck et les explications étaient claires et précises avec beaucoup d humour! J étais déjà allé sur Gili T. mais la vraiment je sais que je ne reviendrai que sur Gili Air car c est le top! Meilleur Club de plongée d Indonésie pour sur!

    thumb Mickael Dayan

    5 star review  Will believe that Gili Divers on Air is the world's best place to get Open Water Diver certificate when you are a beginner. The staff and the surroundings are just great. Annie and her staff (Christian & Tait) were very professional and helpful, clear in their formulations so everyone understood the theory. All dives were carried out professionally with safety at the top, so everyone was very comfortable during each dive. It was a great diving experience that soon needs to be retested. Can only provide the best recommendations for diving with Gili Divers on Air.

    thumb Bradley Jadir

    5 star review  We did our rescue diver here and absolutely loved it. Very professional crew before and during diving, very good relaxed atmosphere after the dive. The owners Greg and Annie run a tight ship (safety comes first and the quality of the gear is top notch). They always went for the best dive spots taking into account visibility, current and how crowded the spots tend to get at that time. Our dive instructor Sebastien Toro was simply amazing and somehow manages to keep a perfect balance between learning and fun. We stayed in a bungalow in the dive center itself and totally recommend. Spotless and the beds are very comfortable. Ry and Kyle are great managers and go the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable!

    5 star review  Best Dive Shop on Gili Air!😊 The Dive Shop is small and very personal. All of the Instructors and the rest of the Team are very helpful, welcoming and professionel. Especially Instructor Anna and Greg who also manage the place do their best to find every single customer the best dive site to suit their experience and dive level. The groups are small and all the Guides and Instructors are very professionel, patient and have always a smile on their face and you can always come to them with any question you may have about diving. You feel always comfortable and safe with Gili Divers on Air. I can highly recommend them for any level from beginners to Pro's they will make your day and you will have a wonderful experience diving around the Gili Islands!

  • 5 star review  I had a great experience at Gili Divers On Air! It was my first time scuba diving down to 12m and therefore I was quite nervous and excited. Annie, our instructor today, explained everything very well and I could ask questions whenever I was unsure if I understood right. After the theoretical part we went to the pool, where I had enough time to practise and try again. After that we had a look at the fish we could probably see and the respective hand signs for each type of fish and went to the boat. We had 41mins and during the whole time I could hold her hand to calm and guide me. It was a great experience and I would highly suggest them, you will not regret it!

    thumb Shirin Bär

    5 star review  An amazing place where you feel comfortable and safe. Very knowledgeable staff who explain the theory and safety so it’s easy to understand, learn and put into practice.
