    Is there more advanced Rescue training courses available to non-EMT people? When I was in the Marine Corps I went through combat first aid, and then when I arrived at a small unit that we had to share a Corpsman I learned Advanced combat first aid (not the exact name but it works), I want to continue learning more but do not really want to become an EMT. I figure you can never learn enough about saving someones life... any suggestions?

    Great class the skills learned made me more comfortable in the water. I just don't understand why Rescue diver doesn't require time based re-certification. I continue to re certifying as a lifeguard every 3 years and CPR every 2.

    Maybe you have a point. Not quite sure I agree. I must renew EFR (or similar first aid, etc.)
    every 2 years. I skim through a page or 2 daily in the manual, so when I take the renewal it's a matter of a one night class, some discussion, a video, and CPRing the dummy for 5 minutes. Changes in procedures are available on the PADI pro site. So, I pay $90 to do what I already know. Perhaps renewal of Rescue would be more important and practical. But the Rescue course itself was what, $200? There is also just re-reading the manual and occasionally practising skills with a buddy--that probably would be fit the bill I would think.

    I just finished my rescue diver cert this past weekend. I had alot of fun. It was a challenging course. It has made me more aware of my surrounding and other divers.
