"Challenging" and "rewarding" best describe the Rescue Diver course with Texas Dive Center. Building upon what you've already learned, this course expands on what you already know about how to prevent problems, and how to manage them if they occur. This is not a Public Safety Diver program, but is designed to help every diver prevent and or resolve diver incidents. We encourage all of our Open Water divers to consider this as their next course.
