THEORY

ONLINE

Unlike the traditional method used by many Singapore Scuba Dive Centres, we have moved all our teaching classes online since the pandemic. Students are happier now and learn more efficiently, even the cost is slightly more expensive.

POOL

ANY SUNDAY

Due to restrictions on usage of the pool for scuba diving, we only have an option for Sunday. Weekdays are possible but the pool allow for scuba diving is relatively dark. So we will prefer to conduct training on Sunday.

4 OCEAN DIVES

WEEKEND

You will be required to complete 4 training dives, spread over 2 days. Most dives are done on weekend, either a Saturday or Sunday. It can be done on the same week or over two Saturday mornings, all subjected to the availability of the boats.

padi RESCUE diver course LOCAL

who should take this course up

This course is highly recommended for any scuba divers who take diving seriously and understand the best way to prevent any incidents from happening is to have more knowledge, anticipate a problem and eliminate it from happening completely. Most certified PADI Rescue Divers will tell you the same story, after completing the course, they look at scuba diving very differently and is always on a constant lookout for potential problems. They understand the importance of a buddy check and diving well within their limits.

Scuba divers describe the PADI Rescue Diver course as the most challenging, yet most rewarding course they’ve ever taken. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water, and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed.

This course is NOT ABOUT strenuous swimming in laps or against a strong current and pulling divers out from the sea on to the shore or boat. It is a realistic course that creates thinking divers – divers that will be able to spot potential problems and mitigate them so a rescue scenario will not be necessary. The rescue scenario is just a preparation for the worst-case scenario. Prevention is always better than a rescue.

During the course, you learn to become a better buddy by practicing problem-solving skills until they become your second nature. Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.

WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE US

BY THE WAY, WE DO NOT PAY FOR REVIEWS AND NEITHER DO WE FORCE REVIEWS ON DIVERS

 

Prompt response: From initial enquiry to travel arrangement to PADI course details, Orpheus Dive has never failed to reply timely, even exceeding expectations!

Hassle-free & flexible to needs: Additional pool sessions requested for were arranged according to our schedules, all we had to do was to make payment. All other logistics arrangements were settled by Orpheus Dive, including the actual trip for PADI training and certification.

Patient & professional dive instructors: Had Lester, Hamish & Darwin train our group and they were very extremely professional in teaching the required skills. Special shout-out to Darwin who has been most patient, most encouraging, most kind to help learners overcome fears and anxiety. He even went the extra mile to take underwater photos and videos to serve as a motivational tool and of course, those were most helpful in the post-dive review sessions. Outstanding service through and through!

You teach with passion, you are very focus and analytic. You corrected my problems during the lesson. You took time to explain every single drills, you added new stuff to make the training fun. You go through again to make sure I understand. I think you are not just a instructor , but an amazing Teacher.

I want to say thank you to especially Michael & Darwin for tonight lesson.

Alan Fong

From zero to a certified advanced open water diver over one weekend, it would not be possible with the guidance from Michael and Nicholas, really, thank you very much for your help for this trip!

Lynn Pang

My sister and I have just recently completed our open water course with Orpheus. The class that we were in had a small ratio of 1 instructor to 3 students and our instructor, Nicholas Chow, was awesome! He was very patient throughout and ensured that each of us was able to carry out a specified task before moving onto next. I was also experiencing seasickness on the first day of the dive and Nicholas was quick to pass me ointments/seasick pills plus shared with me some very helpful tips on overcoming seasickness/equalization problems. Overall, I had a very enjoyable experience and felt safe throughout the course ( I would highly recommend Orpheus to everyone – thanks Orpheus!

Why are your course fees more expensive than the rest of the dive centres I have enquired?

Most of the dive centres are adopting a 1:4 or 5 student ratio, lowering the operating cost of the instructor onboard of the vessel. We do not want to compete on pricing at the risk of forsaking safety protocols. An ideal class is 1:2 or 1:3 (instructor to student) in limited visibility like Pulau Hantu.

And while most dive centres are still using the traditional manual and classroom, we have learnt from the Circuit Breaker, online learning is significantly more beneficial for students.

w

I have an Advanced Certification from other agencies. Can I join the PADI Rescue Diver Course?

Yes, it does not matter if your advanced training certification is from SSI, SDI, NAUI, BSAC or CEMAS. You are more than welcome to join us for the weekend diving in Bali and complete your PADI Rescue Diver certification with us.

w

Can I carry on my training if I have done part of my PADI Rescue Diver Course

Yes, you can. As long as the PADI Rescue Diver Course Referral paperwork is in order, we will be able to finish the training for you as long as it is within the last 12 months.

w

What is there a major price difference between the PADI E-Learning and Hardcopy Manual?

The new PADI E-Learning materials have many advantages. The first thing we have heard from the students is that they are able to focus better on learning in the comfort of their own house. Another reason is, they can learn the material at their own convenience without wasting too much time traveling to the dive school.

Last but not least, the E-Learning materials are more conducive and interactive.

w

I am already certified in First Aid and CPR Training. Do I need to redo it with Emergency First Response?

Not necessary. As long as your certification is current (within the last 24 months at the point of completing your PADI Rescue Diver Course), you do not need to re-attend the Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care Course.

w

I have prior military training in First Aid and CPR Training. Is that accepted?

Not necessary. As long as your first aid and CPR certification is current (within the last 24 months at the point of completing your PADI Rescue Diver Course).
