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

PADI Public Safety Search & Recovery Diver Course with PRO SCUBA CENTER

Public Safety Divers and Underwater Crime Scene Investigators need to be extremely proficient in selecting and conducting search and recovery dives and lifting techniques. This course is more in depth and detailed than recreational search and recovery and emphasizes management and control of potential hazards and problems. By completion the diver will have developed the knowledge and skills to effectively and safely organize, plan and conduct public safety search and recovery dives. If you are not a member of a dive team but have an interest in taking your search and recovery skills to a professional level, you too can enroll in this course.
