The purpose of the PADI RNLI Diver Sea Survival Specialty Diver Course is to cover the knowledge and skills to enable divers to be better prepared and skilled to dive in the UK environment. Between 2011 and 2015, there were 50 scuba fatalities in UK waters*. Sadly, many of these losses could have been prevented with improved diving preparation and personal diving skills. Knowing what to do if something goes wrong at sea can make the vital difference between life and death. You could be rescued more quickly – or may not even need rescuing at all. This course is delivered by our Instructor and current RNLI Boat Crewman so you're in for a totally unique experience. Unlike anywhere else delivering this course we go way beyond just the course content as we're so passionate about the importance of sea safety. Our course also includes: - Visit to local RNLI Lifeboat station to become acquainted with the Atlantic 85 B-class SAR unit. We'll even let you pose for a photo on the helm... - Spend time understanding how the skill's you've learnt play into the equipment we use onboard the lifeboats. - On occasion we will also run this course to co-inside with actual training where you may be fortunate enough to experience a real life recovery and put your hard learnt skills to the test. - Course delivered in UK coastal waters in real life conditions; not a swimming pool insight. - A portion of the course fee is also donated to the RNLI Min: PADI Open Water Diver 1 Day Course | Kit hire available for an extra fee *RNLI analysis of WAID UK fatalities accidental and natural causes only 2011-15 coastal dataset.
Cancellations by us: We hate cancelling any course or session but sometimes the weather can mean it is no longer safe or suitable for us to run your session or course. This is especially true for introductory or entry level activities. Scuba diving is a sport which comes with serious risks and the safety of you and our crew is the number one priority. If we have to cancel for any reason, we’ll always look to reschedule in the first instance, credit for another date or offer a refund (minus transaction and course material fees). Where cancellations are made for any reason Dive Arran Ltd will not be liable for any other associated costs you may have incurred such as but not limited to accommodation or travel. Our dive professional's decision is final, and we ask that you respect their experienced judgement in all circumstances. If you attend for an activity having provided false information, having not completed the required e-learning and assessments, not gained medical clearance (if applicable), under the influence (of any substance or impairing medication) or in any other state which means you are not safe or suitable to dive then no refund will be given. Due to the risks posed by this activity we reserve the right to cancel or terminate any session without reason or warning if we deem your conduct puts yourself or others at risk. We recommend that like any activity you ensure you are suitably insured against cancellations. Cancellations by you: We understand that life can change at short notice, and you can cancel up to 24 hours in advance. We’ll always look to help you reschedule your activity but if we can’t then we’re always happy to refund you (minus transaction and course material fees). Please note where less than 24 hours’ notice is given by you then we reserve the right to retain your complete activity payment. Please understand that unlike many activities diving requires planning and equipment preparation that costs us both time and money. We recommend that like any activity you ensure you are suitably insured against cancellations. Extended Courses and Additional Fee's: If you are unable to complete your course in the designated time due to your own performance and need to attend for further dives we reserve the right to add additional teaching and equipment fee's prior to any certification.
