Has it been a long time since you've been scuba diving? Or maybe you learned to scuba dive only a year or so ago and have not dived since your course finished? Perhaps you're planning on going on holiday and are a little unsure about your dive skills? Let the instructors recommended by The Scuba Doctor reactivate you to the wonders of the underwater world!
Perhaps you've only ever dived in warm water tropical locations and need to get used to what's required to adjust to diving in the colder temperate waters here in Melbourne, Victoria. This Refresher Course is just right for that.
The Refresher Course is the perfect way to review and reactivate your dive skills and knowledge before jumping back into the water.
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 be doing an open water dive in the pristine waters of Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula.
You course will be a bespoke, one-on-one or one-on-two affair with your personal dive instructor.
The Refresher Course programme is for any certified diver who feels they need to touch up their skills. The 4 main components of the program are:
Our Refresher Course programmes are tailored to suit your individual needs so that the amount of time spent on each of these areas can vary depending on your competence and what you want to achieve from the programme.
You use all the basic scuba gear — BCD, Cylinder, Regulator, SPG, Dive Computer, Weight Belt and Wetsuit/Drysuit. You should bring your wetsuit, BCD, regs, weight belt and cylinder, if you have them. If not, you can hire this dive gear from us.
Personal Dive Gear: You will need your own Mask, Snorkel and Fins. Also bring your own Boots, Gloves and Hood if you need them. These are considered to be personal items and are not available for hire.
If you don't have the required gear, check with The Scuba Doctor dive shop about Scuba Equipment Rental and packages offered with this course.
To take the Scuba Review Course, you must:
Before starting the course you are required to fill in and sign a Medical Statement to say you are fit to dive, do not regularly take prescription or non prescription medication and that you do not suffer from any conditions such as asthma, diabetes etc. If you answer 'YES' to any question on the statement, are in any doubt, or feel that you may have a condition which requires approval from a doctor first, please see a qualified SPUMS physician for a Dive Medical assessment that conforms to Australian Standard AS4005-1. (Overseas dive medicals are generally not accepted unless they are equal or better than the AS4005.1 standard.) See Diving Medical for more details.
The price for your bespoke Scuba Review Course at The Scuba Doctor dive shop is just $199 (plus the price of any dive gear hired or purchased).
