Scuba Refresher Description

Like any other skill, if you haven’t been diving recently, your scuba knowledge and dive skills get rusty. To ensure your safety and enjoyment in the water, reputable dive operators will require that certified divers have a consistent practice of diving and can show this through recently logged dives or a scuba refresher session conducted within as little as the past 6 months. A scuba refresher will indicate a diver has reviewed their scuba skills and refreshed their knowledge of diving. If you are travelling soon and need to show proof of diving, this is the course for you. Divers who simply wish to keep up their practice can take a refresher course at any time.

What You Will Practice

Students will practice how to set up and break down their dive equipment, perform a pre-dive safety check, deep water entry (giant stride), clear their mask, recover their regulator, establish buoyancy, descend and equalize, safely ascend and sharing air scenarios. You’ll also have time to yourself to just blow bubbles and reacclimatize yourself to diving.

PADI ReActivate eLearning (Optional)

Complement your in-water session by also refreshing your scuba knowledge with PADI ReActivate online eLearning. After signing up for this option, TSC will issue your eLearning access (within 1-2 business days). Plan for 2-3 hours to complete the eLearning before your in-water session.

By selecting this option, you will also get an updated PADI digital certification card, showing your original certification date as well as a “ReActivated” date (for PADI-certified divers only).

Course Includes

The TSC scuba refresher course fee includes the use of a rental BCD, regulators, tanks and weights. The rental of mask, fins and snorkel is available if required. Your Instructor or Divemaster will sign your log book. If you selected the PADI ReActivate option, you will also receive a new PADI certification card.

You’ll be required to pick up your BCD, regulator and weights (and anything else you’re renting) from the scuba shop so that we can correctly size you for the gear. We will bring your tank to the pool. After your refresher session, you’ll take your gear home to rinse and dry it, and then return it to the shop later in the week.
