Scuba Review (PADI/SDI)

SDI Inactive Diver / PADI ReActivate Diver

Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher?

Update your dive skills and knowledge with a quick scuba refresher from the Open Water diver course before jumping back into the water.

The SDI Inactive Diver or PADI ReActivate programmes are the perfect way to update your dive knowledge and review your basic scuba skills. Whether you just need a few reminders or want a more comprehensive review, these programmes will provide an engaging, prescriptive refresher of scuba principles and procedures.

PADI ReActivate

The PADI ReActivate program has two components – A knowledge review that includes interacting with ReActivate eLearning and 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.
