Update your dive knowledge with a quick SCUBA refresher before jumping back into the water.
Haven’t been diving lately and need a quick SCUBA refresher? The PADI ReActivate™ program is the perfect way to update your dive knowledge and review basic SCUBA skills. 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.
This course is NOT intended for divers who are so far out of dive currency that they require additional formal training in order to achieve the competency and proficiency level of their certification.
The PADI ReActivate program can be taken to refresh basic SCUBA knowledge and skills for divers certified through non-PADI training organizations. Proof of entry-level SCUBA certification with a minimum of four open water training dives is required.
The program has two components: 1) a knowledge review that includes interacting with ReActivate eLearning and 2) a dive skills refresher you complete with a PADI Professional. After successfully completing both components, a PADI Diver receives a replacement certification card showing a “ReActivated Thru” date. Divers initially certified through other training organizations (with proof of at least an entry-level certification) receive ReActivate Recognition Cards. The ReActivate Recognition Card is not a certification card. It only identifies that the diver’s dive knowledge and entry-level skills have been refreshed.
ReActivate eLearning 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. ReActivate eLearning also includes a dive skills review with video demonstrations along with RDP and enriched air diving reviews.
Examples of section topics include:
- Dive Preparation
- Boat Diving
- Dive Computers
- Aquatic Life
- Handling Problems
- Diving Health and Fitness
The PADI ReActivate course consists of a PADI eLearning session prior to your arrival. After checking in at the dive shop, you’ll be prompted to complete the ReActivate Quick Review followed by a 1-2 hour pool session with an Instructor.
