Why risk forfeiting your dive after paying good money? Perhaps, you suddenly forget how to set up your equipment. Or, what if you don’t remember what to do if you run out of air? Then, the dive leader says you are unable to join the dive because you haven’t been diving in the last 12 months.
The Refresher course is designed to refresh the skills learnt during the Open Water course. Importantly, the Refresher course gives you the confidence of being a safe diver. Moreover, the Refresher course will allow you to master any particular skills you are having trouble with.
This course is run in conjunction with the Open Water course. Specifically, you can join in the pool or during the third day of the Open Water dive at the Tweed Heads dive site. The duration of the Refresher course at the pool is approximately 3 hours (10am-1pm). The advantage of doing this course at the pool is that you will get to refresh all the skills included in the Open Water course. However, if you decide to join on the third day of the Open Water course, you can practice your buoyancy in currents and swell. Nevertheless, most divers complete the Refresher course at the pool and join the social dive on the third day of the Open Water course for free.
Please note that courses at Scuba Shane Diving include all diving equipment. However, you are more than welcome to bring your own. This will allow you to test your own kit and practice the skills with the equipment you will use regularly.
Finally, this course does not provide a certification. However, please do bring your logbook so that your instructor can sign it. This is very important. Most dive operators will not allow you to dive unless you can prove you have dived within the last 12 months.
