Scuba Recertification FAQs

The PADI Refresher Course is designed for certified divers who may have taken a hiatus from diving and feel the need to refresh their skills. If you’re planning a dive trip after a long gap, or if you feel uncertain about any of the essential dive skills, this course is ideal for you.

The refresher course isn’t a certification program, but rather a skill refresh. Thus, it doesn’t have an expiration. However, if you have long gaps between dives, it’s recommended to take a refresher course every 12-24 months for safety and confidence.

The PADI Reactivate program is a more comprehensive review that includes both theoretical and practical components. On completion, divers receive a replacement certification card with a reactivated date. The PADI Refresher Course, on the other hand, is a shorter program primarily focused on revisiting essential diving skills.

While most scuba-related equipment is provided, you should bring your swimwear, a towel, any personal diving gear if you have it, and a form of identification. Don’t forget your certification card from your initial dive course, and be sure to review the PADI Medical Form before arrival.

Safety is our top priority. If weather conditions are deemed unsuitable or unsafe for diving, the scuba recertification course may be rescheduled to a later date or an alternate dive site may be chosen. We always ensure that decisions are made in the best interest of our divers’ safety and overall experience.
