Acting as a public safety diver can be a fun and exciting adventure, yet it’s a serious activity and requires special training. As a Public Safety Diver (79205) you can work with the local authorities or be part of a rescue team. You might even be asked to assist in underwater criminal investigations.
During your knowledge development with this manual, you’ll be introduced to the special procedures, equipment, scene handling, communications and documentation requirements for a public safety diving operation. You will put what you learnt into action in four open water dives. With your PADI instructor, you practice compass navigation, knot tying, arc search techniques, victim recovery, rope-pull communications and rescue techniques for a distressed public safety diver.
