Scuba Review Course Details

The Scuba Review Course consists of 2 phases:

  1. Knowledge Development
  2. Pool Refresher Dives

These phases are detailed in the sections below.

Scuba Tune-Up Guidebook

1. Knowledge Development

Quickly and effectively review scuba diving fundamentals with PADI’s Scuba Tune-Up Guidebook.

Your review of the materials in the book will begin with answering of a few questions related to dive safety, problem management and dive planning.

For example:

- What are the five steps in a pre-dive safety check?
- What is the maximum depth limit for all recreational diving?
- What are the signs and symptoms of decompression sickness?
- At 40 feet a diver runs out of air. Her buddy is more than 60 feet away, what should she do?

Correct answers will allow you to complete the book quickly. For incorrect answers, you’ll read a brief explanation to help you understand the concept.

Reviewing the Mask Removal Skill

2. Pool Refresher Dives

During your scuba refresher dives you will go over scuba knowledge you learned during your initial training. Then, practice fundamental skills in a pool or a confined water area.

During your dives you will review:

  1. Safe diving practices
  2. Dive planning fundamentals
  3. Problem management
  4. Breathing air at depth
  5. Recreational diving and dive tables: basic knowledge
  6. Recreational diving and dive tables: dive planning

After you complete the knowledge assessment, you go through the Confined Water Skills Preview. You review information about each skill, why it’s important, and points to remember when performing the skill. Completing this section just before practicing is a great way to refresh your knowledge of how each skill is performed.

The scuba review is particularly beneficial if you:

  1. Are an Open Water Diver course referral student looking for a refresher prior to making your Open Water trianing dives
  2. Are a PADI Scuba Diver interested in upgrading to Open Water Diver
  3. Just haven’t been diving in a long while and want to get re-aclimated
