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 Scuba Course is designed to refresh the inactive diver skills learnt during the Open Water course. Importantly, the Refresher course gives you the confidence of being a safe diver. Moreover, Refresher Scuba Course will allow you to master any particular skills you are having trouble with.
This course is run in conjunction with the Open Water Scuba Course. Specifically, you can join in the pool or during the second day of the Open Water dive at the Tweed Heads dive site. The duration of the scuba course at the pool is approximately 5 hours (9am-2pm). 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 second 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 of the Open Water course for free (excludes gear hire, tanks and weights).
Furthermore, we strongly suggest considering completing the Refresher Course at the pool if your last dive was between 5 to 10 years. Importantly, the pool session will cover more than the Open Water dives. Specifically, the course is designed to refresh skills and not too teach from scratch. As a result, any diver that has a log dive after 10 years will have to enrol in the Open Water Course.
