With the PADI Reactivate course you will enjoy again the incredible feeling of diving.
If you have been out of the water for a while, and you feel yourself rusty, then you need the PADI Reactivate course.
This is the right way to brush up on knowledge and skills that you acquired in the basic diver course before jumping again into the water. If you took the PADI Open Water Diver, you may refresh your knowledge through PADI’s digital platform. If you did not take a PADI’s course, then you will have to go through the theory lessons on face-to-face basis.
The following step will be getting back into the water together with your dive instructor, who will review, together with you, the setting-up of your dive equipment and the rest of skills that you previously learnt.
Completing the PADI Reactivate course, is also an excellent way of successfully preparing for the PADI Advanced. This is also a good way of programming a dive trip. The good thing with the PADI Reactivate lies in students’ refreshing both the theory but also the practical knowledge. They will even get a replacement certification card with the new Reactivate date (specific for PADI Open Water Divers).
Diving centres at your dive destinations will appreciate seeing a recent Reactivate date on your certification card as this shows them you’re up to date with your skills and ready to dive. This way you will skip the previous dive skill check-up, which is usual if they do not know you.
Is it compulsory to get a PADI Reactivate certification before diving again?
Completing the PADI Reactivate programme is not mandatory, but highly recommended for divers who have been out of the water for a while. Your PADI card, which your earned once, does not expire.
The academic content reviewed in this course centre around foundational aspects such as dive planning, problem management, review of other skills, etc.
In the water, your instructor will help you regain confidence and comfort when diving.
The course includes a dive theory review through the PADI digital platform or face-to-face theory lessons. Then, you will have two dive sessions for developing the practical exercises. It is not necessary that you bring anything with you, as the Diving Centre will make the dive gear available for you. Nonetheless, you are welcome to take your own equipment, if you feel more comfortable.
