Do you have an exotic trip planned in the coming months and just realized you haven’t been diving in a while? With the new PADI ReActivate™ program, you can quickly brush up on knowledge and skills that you acquired in the PADI Open Water Diver course without having to start from scratch.
The PADI ReActivate program is fully personalized and prescriptive, meaning you’ll only have to cover the areas where your skills and knowledge need refreshing. You’ll be able to review important concepts on your computer (ReActivate Online) or mobile and tablet devices (ReActivate Touch) and work through topics at your own pace.
You’ll interact with dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management before going diving with a PADI Professional who will review a few basic safety skills before diving deeper into any skills you specifically want to recap. Just like riding a bike, the skills will come right back to you.
What’s even better is that once you’ve completed both the knowledge and in-water skill refreshers, you’ll even get a replacement certification card with your ReActivate date. Dive shops 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 into your scuba adventure.
*Your PADI certification does not expire. Participation in PADI ReActivate is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your foundational scuba safety knowledge and skills if you haven’t been diving in a while. Divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a “ReActivated thru” date on it.
