Not been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? Are you a PADI Open Water Diver or PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or PADI Rescue Diver? The 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, divers who complete both the knowledge and water skills refresher receive a PADI replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it. Please take a moment to go to http://aquatic-world.com/page/open_water_diver" for the medical questionaire and instruction if you have a Yes answer.
