PADI Scuba Review Course – TheÂ Fun Part
Brush up on your scuba knowledge and skills. Improve your diving ability, and get your scuba gear ready for your next scuba vacation or diving holiday.
PADI SCUBA Review program is used to evaluate PADI SCUBA Divers and referred student divers skills, who wish to upgrade their certification to PADI Open Water Diver level. The Scuba review program or how we like to call it, the Tune-Up has mainly been developed for divers who haven’t been in the water for a while.
PADI recommendation says that divers who have not been diving for 6 – 12 months or more should participate on a scuba review program, to make sure they are up to date and have not forgotten anything vital.
Padi SCUBA review program consists of two parts:
- Knowledge Review
- Confined Water Skills Review
After your scuba review, you also have the option to go for an additional open water dive to deepen your experience. The academic knowledge review recaps the basic information, scuba divers have become familiar with during their entry level course.
Padi Scuba Review Cyprus – Your Scuba Tune up
The questions in the knowledge review are based on the questionnaire and quizzes from the PADI Open Water Course.
This not a test that you can fail! Your diving instructor or divemaster will be happy to discuss any question you did not understand with you.
The confined water skills review allows you to recapitulate all basic diving skills. Under the direct supervision of a well-trained and experienced PADI Dive Master or diving Instructor you can easily review all your scuba diving knowledge in a relaxed environment.
