As an Adaptive buddy you will train alongside an adaptive student and are rated to the same classification.

Knowledge of the Adaptive student’s challenges and their unique abilities is key.  The minimum level of training given is an open water diver, along with rescue skills, First Aid, CPR, Oxygen Administration and Automated External Defibrillation.

If you are not a Rescue Diver or equivalent then find out how to get to that level by contacting the individual training agencies below or alternatively contact your nearest Dive Chapter
