As a Rescue Diver you grow to look after not only your own safety, but the safety of others as well. You learn to look for problems in others, check equipment thoroughly and dive to the conditions. We hear and see it a lot in the Open Water Diver course... "Plan your dive and dive your plan". Up until now you probably haven't done that much; just jump in the water and pop your head up by the time the dive supervisor said! You will learn to plan, at least put together a basic plan, and then dive the plan.
