ISO 24801.3, RSTC Recreational Dive Supervisor

The intent of this program is to provide individuals with sanctioned training as dive supervisors. The standards cover the supervision of recreational divers and assistance in the training of such divers. A certified dive supervisor is qualified to apply the knowledge and skills to assist certified instructors in conducting educational and scuba skills training of recreational scuba divers, and to conduct supervised diving activities.


PTRD, in compliance with the most restrictive legislation, requires the participants of its courses the following requirements prior to its start:

  • English-Medical or Medical certificate indicating “suitable for diving”, which you will have to renew every 2 years.
  • Successfully completed and certified as a PTRD 2 Star Diver or equivalent
  • Demonstrate experience in night diving, limited visibility, deep diving and underwater navigation.
  • Demonstrate good aquatic skills such as: maintain good buoyancy, be able to swim 25 meters underwater without fins, hold your breath for at least 1 minute.
  • Demonstrate that you have received a Rescue Diver training program or equivalent
  • provide evidence of at least 50 (50) recorded open water dives including night dives, limited visibility dives, deep dives (thirty (30) to 40 (40) meters), drift dives, cold water dives and underwater navigation skills
  • Photocopy of valid ID or passport.
  • Fill in the student’s sheet and information about the risks.
  • Have DAN O2 First Aid (oxygen administration) and BLS (Basic Life Support) certificates or equivalent.

Your PTRD instructor (which must be at least PTRD 2 Star Instructor) must inform you beforehand of their school’s own requirements, the price of your course, the conditions of completion and completion of the course, as well as having at your disposal the documentation of your obligatory Civil Liability and Accident insurance.

In addition to all the administrative documentation, you will need specific equipment for the activity, which includes scuba cylinders, weights, bcd, regulator, suit, fins, mask, snorkel… and which is normally provided by the school, or you must be informed beforehand if not. It is recommended that you attend the course with your own diving equipment or, at least, with your deco buoy, spool and diving goggles
