PADI ReActivate

Have you found yourself out of the water for a while? No matter how rusty you may feel, you can always get back into the groove and explore the depths of your favourite dive spots whilst making sure that you’re staying safe and having fun.

It is always better to be over prepared than to forget how to properly and safely complete a dive, and with the new PADI ReActivate program, you can quickly brush up on the knowledge and skills that you acquired in the PADI Open Water Diver course without having to start from scratch.

PADI ReActivate is personalised just for you: You conveniently review scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer, and then go diving with a PADI Professional. It’s quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next PADI course or get ready for a diving holiday adventure. The best part is the peace of mind you'll have knowing that you have refreshed both your diving knowledge and your in-water skills.

The PADI ReActivate program is fully personalised and prescriptive, meaning that you’ll only have to cover the areas where your skills and knowledge need refreshing. You’ll be able to review important concepts on your computer (ReActivate Online) or mobile and tablet devices (ReActivate Touch) and work through topics at your own pace.

You’ll interact with dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management before going diving with a PADI Professional who will review a few basic safety skills before diving deeper into any skills you specifically want to recap. Just like riding a bike, the skills will come right back to you.

What’s even better is that once you’ve completed both the knowledge and the in-water skill refreshers, you’ll even get a replacement certification card with your ReActivate date. Dive shops will appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card as this shows them that you’re up to date with your skills and ready to dive into your next scuba adventure.

By completing PADI ReActivate after a period out of the water, you will feel more confident and will be able to make the most out of your scuba adventures. It’s quick, easy and the best way to prepare for your next scuba course or diving vacation. So what are you waiting for? Jump back in today and begin your PADI ReActivate now by starting your SCUBA Tune Up!


What will you learn?

Using ReActivate Touch (for tablets or mobile devices) or ReActivate Online (for your personal computer), you’ll immerse yourself in dive scenarios and make decisions that will test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management. What's even better is that you can move through ReActivate at your own pace and delve deeper into topics when you need or want to.

In the water, your PADI Professional will help you regain comfort and confidence in scuba diving. You’ll practice a few safety related skills and then go over anything you specifically want to review.

In-water ReActivate course cost: $499
