ReActivate Your Certification
 Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba

refresher? The ReActivate™ program is the perfect way

to update your dive skills and knowledge from the PADI

Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the

water. Whether you want a few reminders or need to go

over the basics, ReActivate is personalized for you: You conveniently review scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer, then go diving with a PADI Professional. It’s quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next PADI course or get ready for a diving vacation. The best part is, divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.

Any PADI certified diver who wants a refresher or pre-travel update should ReActivate. Dive shops appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in.DIVE IN
