Refresh your Skills if you have been out of the water for a while

Have you realized you’ve been out of the water for quite some time? No matter how rusty and unconfident you feel, you can always dive back into the groove and explore the depths of your dive spots on your checklist whilst making sure you’re staying safe and entertained

It is always better to be over-prepared than to forget how to perfectly and safely finish a dive, and with the new PADI ReActivate™  program, you can quickly refresh up on knowledge and skills that you acquired in the PADI Open Water Diver course without having to start from all over again. PADI ReActivate is more tailored in that it targets skills and areas that you are struggling with precisely.



Can you recall the maximum safe ascent rate? Do you remember how to plan a dive using tables, calculate residual nitrogen times and test for proper weighting? Can you perform a controlled emergency swimming ascent or recall emergency decompression procedures?

If not, PADI ReActivate will help you brush up your safety skills and ensure you’re fit for diving again.


It’s natural to feel some anxiety when returning to the water after a long diving break. PADI ReActivate will help you review your skills and knowledge so you can dive with confidence.



First, you must complete a knowledge review session to refresh your dive theory. You can do this Sirolodive and we will give you access to ReActivate Online (browser-based learning) or ReActivate Touch (an interactive app for mobile and tablet).

The review – which can be done at your own pace – will present you with a range of realistic diving scenarios (text or video) and ask you to answer multiple choice questions on each one. If you answer correctly, you will progress to the next scenario; if you answer incorrectly, you will be given the right answer and then tested on similar scenarios to make sure you have understood.

Once all scenarios are complete, you must take the ReActivate Quick Review, after which you will be presented with a certificate confirming completion.


Once you have completed the theory, you can book a practical session at your Sirolodive. During this session, you will assemble your dive gear and review the five mandatory skills with your instructor.

  • Remove, replace and clear the mask
  • Become neutrally buoyant and hover
  • Use the weight system’s quick release to become positively buoyant in water too deep to stand in
  • Ascend using an alternate air source and establish positive buoyancy on the surface
  • Perform a controlled emergency swimming ascent (CESA)

After this, you will focus on any other skills that you or your instructor think need attention.

ReActivate sessions can take place in confined or open water (depending on the dive centre) and vary in length. One-hour sessions are common but your instructor will make sure you have enough time to practice until you’re confident once more.


Once you have finished, your instructor through Sirolodive will process your PADI ReActivation. You will receive a new certification card in the post with your ReActivation date on the back.
