Refresh Your Skills

ReActivate your certification before your next tripHas it been a while since you’ve been scuba diving? The PADI 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, PADI divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card* with a ReActivated date on it.

ReActivate Scuba Card*Your PADI certification does not expire. Participation in PADI ReActivate™ is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your foundational scuba safety knowledge and skills if you haven’t been diving in a while. PADI divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a “ReActivated thru” date on it.

What You Learn

Using ReActivate Touch (for tablets or mobile devices) or ReActivate Online (for your personal computer), you’ll immerse yourself in dive scenarios and make decisions that test your understanding of important dive safety concepts, dive planning essentials and problem management. Move through ReActivate at your own pace and delve deeper into topics when you need or want to.

In the water, your PADI Professional will help you regain comfort and confidence in scuba diving. You’ll practice a few safety-related skills and then go over anything you specifically want to review.

Are you a PADI certified diver?

If so, then you can use PADI ReActivate Touch or ReActivate Online to complete the knowledge review part of the course. Once you complete the full Touch or Online program plus the inwater skills, you can earn a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.

Not a PADI certified diver?

You can still enjoy all of the benefits of the course, but you will not be eligible for a replacement certification card. We are more than happy to provide you with other proof of course completion. You will also take the PADI Scuba Tune-Up Online course instead of ReActivate Touch or Online.
