 Diamond Reef Buoyancy Training
Class Schedule  

The Diamond Reef is a buoyancy training program that utilizes a modular, artificial reef that gives you a way to measure your buoyancy proficiency. Certified divers will learn to be more aware of proper ascent rates, horizontal hovering, breathing and subtle body movement techniques to control, and be shown what their swimming cross section really is.

Has it been a while since you've been scuba diving? Do you feel like your scuba skills and knowledge are a bit rusty? The PADI ReActivate Scuba Review Tune-up is just the refresher you need. It reacquaints you with diving so that you're back to feeling comfortable in the underwater world in less than a day. PADI ReActivate Scuba Refresher Program
Class Schedule  

Haven't been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? The PADI ReActivate program is the perfect way to update your dive knowledge and review basic scuba skills. Whether you just need a few reminders or want a more comprehensive review, this program provides an engaging, prescriptive refresher of scuba principles and procedures.

The program has two components: 1) a knowledge review that includes interacting with ReActivate eLearning and 2) a dive skills refresher you complete with a PADI Professional. After successfully completing both components, a PADI Diver receives a replacement certification card showing "ReActivated". Divers initially certified through other training organizations (with proof of at least an entry-level certification) receive ReActivate Recognition Cards.

 

 

While it is true that "Once you are certified, you are certified for life", your skills do get rusty.  Techniques and equipment options also change over the years.  For someone who has been out of the water for many years, something more extensive than the two options listed above is usually appropriate.  We have had great success with customers who have updated their skills by retaking the classroom and pool portions of the Open Water Training.  This provides students with updated home study materials along with a greater amount of class and pool time than offered in other options.

Classroom and Pool Training

Class Schedule eLearning Option
Part 1 - Classroom and Pool Training: The purpose of the classroom and pool training is to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and skills they need to enjoy and safely complete the open water training.
