This past weekend Chris and I went and took the rescue diver's course in Toronto. This combined a "First Emergency Responder's" course on CPR, making splints and suchlike with a course of how to recover non-breathing divers, how to subdue divers in a panic, and how to tow tired divers to shore. The course is probably one of the most substative single PADI scuba courses. It not only includes some useful (and potentially life-saving) scuba skills, but a lot of general knowledge that is good anyplace.

It's a tiring course and we had to drag each other around the pool in various ways. The most spectacular part is learning to essentially disable a diver on the surface who might attack you because they are experiencing irrational panic.
