PADI Self Reliant diver course at Thresher Cove Resort

We offer the PADI Self Reliant diver course at Thresher Cove Resort. First of all to recognize and accept the role of the buddy system and its contributions to diver safety. Secondly to identify and develop self-reliance and independence while diving.

There are two reasons for an experienced diver to take the Self-Reliant diver course:
• To develop the skills of planning and carrying out dives without a partner. When this is preferred or necessary.
• To sharpen skills of diving self-reliance. It will make you, as a diver a stronger partner in a dive pair or team.

Certainly PADI instructors should be looking for this certification! For example, you are responsible as an instructor for the safety of all of your students. On the other hand, will all of your students be able to help you if need arises?

In other words, get certified at self reliant diver level with Camille after your PADI IDC with us. After that you’re only one more training dive away from becoming a PADI self reliant instructor.
