Haven't been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? The PADI ReActivate™ program is open to divers certified by any recognized scuba agency and 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, divers receive a replacement certification card showing a “ReActivated Thru” date. Divers initially certified through other training organizations (with proof of at least an entry-level certification) receive ReActivate Recognition Cards.


ReActivate eLearning has 20 main sections with scenarios that help you recall and apply what you know and want to refresh in an integrated manner. You'll answer several questions and either move on to the next section, or review additional background information for more detail. It's intuitive and interesting.

Examples of section topics include:

  • dive preparation
  • boat diving
  • dive computers
  • aquatic life
  • handling problems
  • diving health and fitness

To complete your knowledge refresher, you'll be prompted to complete the ReActivate Quick Review. ReActivate eLearning also includes a dive skills review with video demonstrations along with RDP and enriched air diving reviews.

Do I Need My Own Equipment?

Yes - as a diver you should have your basic scuba kit consisting of a mask, snorkel, fins, boots, buoyancy compensator, and regulator. Scuba Shack will provide tanks and weights for the confined water pool session. If you do not have your own equipment we can provide rental gear.

  3. 3. Get your scuba gear together and serviced
  4. 4. Get ready to jump back in!

Is There Anything Else?

Yes - Everyone who participates in the PADI ReActivate program must complete the RSTC Medical Questionaire before particpating in any in-water activity. You can download a copy of the form here. Based on your responses, you may be required to have your physician clear you for recreational scuba diving.
