Has it been a while since you've been scuba diving? Do you feel like your scuba skills and knowledge are a bit rusty? The PADI ReActivate Scuba Refresher program is just the refresher you need. It reacquaints you with diving so that you're back to feeling comfortable in the underwater world in less than a day. Whether you just need a few reminders or want a more comprehensive review, this program provides an engaging, prescriptive refresher of scuba principles and procedures.
The PADI ReActivate Scuba Refresher program has the following components:
After successfully completing all components, you receive a replacement PADI certification card showing a "ReActivated Thru" date. Divers initially certified through other training organisations (with proof of at least an entry-level certification) receive ReActivate Recognition Cards.
Brush up on your scuba knowledge and skills. Improve your diving ability, and get your scuba gear ready for your next scuba vacation or diving holiday.
You'll go over the scuba knowledge you learned during your initial Open Water training via the ReActivate eLearning component and classroom session with a PADI Professional. The ReActivate eLearning component has 20 main sections with scenarios that help you recall and apply what you know and want to refresh in an integrated manner. You'll answer several questions and either move on to the next section, or review additional background information for more detail. It's intuitive and interesting.
Examples of section topics include:
Then, you'll practice fundamental skills on a pool or shore dive. You'll review: Safe diving practices, Dive planning fundamentals, Problem management, Breathing air at depth, Recreational diving and dive tables: basic knowledge, Recreational dive planning and dive tables.
To complete your knowledge refresher, you'll be prompted to complete the ReActivate Quick Review.
