Your PADI certification never expires; but if you haven't been diving in a while, it's better to be over-prepared than risk a problem because you forget something important. Dive shops also appreciate seeing a recent ReActivated date on your certification card.
It's easy to fit a scuba refresher course into your busy schedule. Using a computer or mobile device, watch videos of how to perform basic scuba skills and review dive planning and safety procedures - whenever, wherever it's convenient for you.
- Time with your instructor: 2-6 hours
You'll practice setting up dive gear, make ascents and descents, and review any scuba skills you may have forgotten.
