Haven’t been scuba diving for a while? Take a Reef Encounter Scuba Skills Update Course!
Update your scuba diving skills and keep informed with current dive techniques! With guidance from our friendly and experienced dive professionals you will be able to enjoy more relaxed dives and recapture the feeling of total confidence on your in-water adventures.
A refresher course will make you much more comfortable when you get back in the water, and is an ideal way to get your scuba dive skills back to where they should be.
What’s Involved in a Refresher Course?
One of our experienced scuba dive professionals will take you over all of the key in-water skills that you learned in your Open Water Course and you will have time to practice basic good diving techniques such as buoyancy control with your Instructor.
Knowledge – Your Scuba Skills Update Dive Leader will review the knowledge you learned in your Open Water Diver class as well as cover any new material. You will review dive planning, dive tables and dive execution to keep you safe during future diving activities.
Skills – In the Scuba Skills Update you will have the opportunity to practice and review the scuba skills you learned in your open water diver class and learn techniques that may have changed. You will have the opportunity to refresh your memory and motor coordination, as well as practice your self-aid skills – all under the guidance of a dive leader.
Equipment – The Scuba Skills Update is a great opportunity to re-learn about current equipment, or the perfect time to learn about and adjust your new equipment with the guidance of a dive leader.
How long does a Refresher Course take?
A refresher course can be completed in one scuba dive, though may be more if necessary. This leaves you free to enjoy fun scuba dives for the rest of your trip!
Flying after scuba diving: We recommend that you do not fly for at least 24 hours after diving. This means the earliest you should fly is 12pm (midday) on the day after your scuba dive trip ends.
