PUBLIC SAFETY DIVER COURSE Be One Of The Highest Certified & Trained Public Safety Divers In The World!

PADI Public Safety Diver Course with PRO SCUBA CENTER

Public safety diving can be an exciting and honorable service provided to our communities by divers and their surface support personnel. These specially trained men and women provide underwater services ranging from rescue diving to recovery and underwater crime scene investigations. 

If you have the desire and opportunity to work with local authorities and be part of a dive team, or conduct search and recovery dives, and maybe even underwater crime scene investigations, this is the course for you. Or if you want a challenge and want to improve your comfort and confidence in less than ideal conditions, then you too can become a Public Safety Diver.

The Fun Part
