Scuba Refresher 

Has it been a while since you’ve been scuba diving? Do you feel like your scuba skills and knowledge are a bit rusty?

If you answered YES, then CSDA's comprehensive Scuba Refresher is exactly what you need.

It reacquaints you with diving so that you're back to feeling comfortable in the underwater world in less than a day. Brush up on your scuba knowledge and skills, improve your diving ability, and get your scuba gear ready for your next scuba diving adventure, vacation or holiday.


What You Learn

We have two options for the scuba refresher class: The 2-3 hours option that's composed two parts or the full weekend option.

2-3 hours option: 

Part One:  Go over scuba knowledge you learned during your initial training.  You will take 4 ten question quizzes, related to dive safety, problem management and dive planning.  It won’t matter if you pass or fail.  These quizzes are for checking and refreshing your dive theory knowledge.  If you miss any question, it will be reviewed by your instructor,  who will also make sure, that all of your questions have been answered.

Part Two: Practice fundamental skills in a pool or a confined water area.  You will review and perform basic diving skills,  you’ve learned during your initial training.   At the same time,  you’ll have a chance to hone your neutral buoyancy,  trim and underwater swim.

Full Weekend option:

The "full weekend" is the most comprehensive refresher class available.  It allows you to participate in the class&pool portion of the Open Water Dive Course, where you will have an in depth knowledge review of the theory of scuba diving followed by skill practice in confined water.  All the benefits of the OW Diver course, without some of the "testing" obligations (final test and some waterman skills will be completely optional for you)

Private class option:

The private class includes about 3 hours of in-water skill practice and an additional 2 hours of comprehensive knowledge review. The private class is normally spread over two separate sessions, with a private PADI scuba instructor.​
