The PADI ReActivate with DIVERS WEST

Has it been over a year since you’ve been scuba diving? Do you feel like your scuba skills and knowledge are a bit rusty? A Scuba Refresher is just what you need. It reacquaints you with diving so that you're back to feeling comfortable in the underwater world in less than a day.

$155.00 includes:

PADI Reactivate eLearn Code(for PADI certified divers, tablet or mobile device only), or
Scuba Tune-Up Book (for non-PADI certified divers)
1-2 hours pool refresher session
New certification card after completing pool session
scuba gear rental extra

Sign up online to begin your PADI ReActivate refresher online, then stop by the shop to register and schedule the pool session. If you are not already a PADI certified diver and were certified through another scuba agency, please stop by the shop to sign up for your Scuba Tune-Up refresher.

The Fun Part

Brush up on your scuba knowledge and skills. Improve your diving ability, and get your scuba gear ready for your next scuba vacation or diving holiday.

What you Learn

You go over scuba knowledge you learned during your initial training with the DIVERS WEST Team. Then, practice fundamental skills in a pool or a confined water area. You review:

  • Safe diving practices
  • Dive planning fundamentals
  • Problem management
  • Breathing air at depth
  • Recreational diving and dive tables: basic knowledge
  • Recreational diving and dive tables: dive planning

After you complete the knowledge assessment, you go through the Confined Water Skills Preview. You review information about each skill, why it’s important, points to remember when performing the skill and a short video clip. Completing this section just before practicing is a great way to refresh your knowledge of how each skill is performed.

The Scuba Review course is particularly beneficial if you:

  • Are a PADI Open Water Diver course referral student who wants a refresher prior to making your open water training dives
  • Are a PADI Scuba Diver who wants to upgrade to Open Water Diver
  • Just haven’t scuba dived in a while and want to get familiar again

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all the basic scuba gear. If you dont have scuba gear, Divers West offers a 50% discount off regular rental rates. Just like when you were becoming a certified diver, you do need to provide your own personal gear such as mask, snorkel, and fins. You can find everything you need at Divers West and we will offer you a student discount on any gear purchases.

The Learning Materials and Steps

If you are already a PADI certified diver, you can select the online Reactivate course and do the knowledge review portion from your tablet or mobile device. (Not compatible with laptop or desktop.) Once completed, you will receive a certificate of completion. Next step would be to stop by the shop to register for the pool review session.( Additional fees applies.) Once you have completed your pool review, you will receive a new PADI Certification Card showing "ReActivate."

If you were certified through another agency or if you just prefer to do your knowledge review in a class environment, face to face with an instructor, you would select Scuba Tune-Up. Stop by the shop to register for Scuba Tune-Up and pick up your study materials and schedule pool review date.


To take a Scuba Refresher course, you must have

  • a scuba diver certification
