Activity Highlights:

The PADI ReActivate Course is perfect for those who’ve taken a break from diving and want to dive back into the deep! This course is designed to refresh your diving knowledge and skills, ensuring that your diving adventures remain safe and enjoyable. It is also ideal if you are going on holiday and need to do a refresher so that you can do fun-dives when you are there!

Recommended for divers who’ve had a break of six months or more, the PADI ReActivate Course helps you:

  • Boost your confidence in diving.
  • Prepare you for your next diving course.
  • Aid in transitioning from a different certification organisation.
  • Practise assembling a scuba unit.
  • Manage common problems underwater.
  • Perform basic skills with ease.

Although PADI certifications never expire, it’s always best to come prepared, ensuring that no important skills or knowledge are forgotten.

The PADI ReActivate Course begins with digital eLearning materials for you to complete at your own pace. You’ll review basic scuba skills and safety considerations before meeting up for a practical session where your diving experience and knowledge will be assessed. Following this, you’ll have a water skills dive where you can practice and master the 20 Open Water Course skills. On completion of the course, your PADI dive profile will be updated to reflect your reactivated status.
