First Aid and Rescue Course


First Aid Training – SSI React Right + Stress & Rescue Course | 3 Days | 2600 THB deposit

First aid training is a prerequisite to the Rescue Course and the React Right course includes primary and secondary care, first aid and oxygen use, theory and practical application and scenarios. If you already have completed first aid training within the last 24 months remember to bring proof of this with you and you can start the rescue course straight away. We like to spend a day so you have plenty of time to practice through all the necessary skills.



First Aid and Rescue Course

During these 3 days, we combine the First Aid and Rescue Diver courses and you will study additional theory beyond what you have learned in your previous Koh Tao diving courses.

What Happens In The Course?

Develop your diving knowledge, and practice rescue skills in shallow water that will include responding to diver emergencies, and self-rescue techniques. In addition to recognizing rescue situations.  Think before you act.  Furthermore, you learn accident management, emergency care, and first aid for common aquatic life injuries, problem-solving on the surface and underwater.  Responding to equipment problems and first aid for diving-related injuries.

The Final Day

The last day is putting the skills you have learned into practice through diving scenarios.  Sounds a lot of work doesn’t it and it is but it is the best course you will do.  Guaranteed you will be exhausted afterward but you will have a huge smile on your face.  We also include an oxygen provider to cover the theory and practical side of administering O2 to an injured diver.
