The Refresher Courses are designed to refresh the skills. The skills you were taught during your learn to scuba dive Open Water Course.
This course is run in conjunction with the Open Water Course at either the pool or the open water dive on day 3. The Refresher Course (inactive diver course) will give you the confidence of being a safe diver when you book your next adventure beneath the sea.
Why risk your dive at Manta Bommie or Cook Island that you have paid good money. All of a sudden you forget how to set up your equipment or even do your buddy check. Then you’re told by the dive leader you’re not getting on the boat.
Do you remember what to do if you run out of air? How about a computer ascent?
The Refresher Course will go over those skills. If there are particular skills, you start having trouble with then you have the opportunity to master it on the day.
The duration of the Refresher Course at the pool is approximately 3 hours from 10am to 1pm. If you decide to do the Open Water Refresher, it will be taught on the high tide down at Tweed Heads dive site.
All courses at Scuba Shane Diving includes all equipment but you are more than welcome to bring your own.
Doing the course in your own scuba equipment not only lets you test your kit, but it allows you to practice the skills in the equipment you will be diving with, out on the reefs or wrecks.
The advantage of doing this course at the pool is you will be refreshed in all the Open Water skills. While having the opportunity of a flexible time schedule. If you were doing the course down at the Tweed River, you have a transit of 90 minutes. You will have the opportunity to master your buoyancy in currents and swell.
Having the flexibility to choose what you would prefer makes my Refresher course so convenient and flexible to your needs.
Most divers do the refresher at the pool then book on for a free social dive on the third day of the Open Water Course.
This course does not provide a certification. Please bring your logbook for signing by the instructor. Most dive stores or charters will not allow you to dive with them unless you can prove you have dived within the last 12 months.
