Your PADI® Certification never expires, but if you haven’t been diving in a while, it’s important to ensure all your skills are fresh in your mind. Here’s three key reasons why you should take the PADI ReActivate Program before diving back into the deep blue.
- For your own confidence
When you go diving, you should be completely confident in your own skills. If you haven’t been diving in a while, you might question yourself a little – Is this how I set my gear up? What do I do if my mask floods? What do I do if I can’t see my buddy? If you have to ask these questions, then you really should refresh your skills.
- For your buddy
When you go diving, you want your buddy to have the skills to handle any situation that might arise underwater. This goes both ways, so show your buddy the same courtesy and brush up on your skills. Trying to communicate with your buddy underwater is tricky enough without forgetting to sign that you’re out of air. If neither of you have been diving in a while, why not suggest to your buddy that you both ReActivate before your next dive.
- For your most enjoyable dive
We want every dive to be enjoyable for every diver. Reminding yourself of some key skills can help ensure that you and your buddy have a great dive. ReActivate takes you through important skills that will make your dive more enjoyable like how to clear your mask when it floods and how to properly use your dive computer.
