Open Water Refresher

What!!! haven't been under the water since when......???!!!

Our training facilities make it easy for you to practice your skills but if you feel that you need a little more coaching then Perth Diving Academy can offer you a customized refresher course.Refresher courses are available and designed for divers who have already gained a recognized SCUBA diving certification.

Pool Refreshers ~$100.00/hour

If it has not been too long since you were immersed in the underwater world then you may only need a couple of hours in our pool with an instructor or dive master to run through the basics and check your equipment skills. This provides you with a safe environment and qualified assistance to make sure you still possess the skills and have confidence in yourself as a diver.

Perth Diving Academy will provide all the necessary SCUBA equipment for these sessions, you need only your Snorkeling equipment, bathers, a towel and your logbook/certification card.

We do not supply an educational pack but you can use your old PADI, SSI, NASDS text book for course pre-study. No certification is issued on a refresher program, PDA usually endorses the divers logbook.

If you require a new certification card it will cost $85 and includes digital photos.

The 'Total Refresher' $430.00

For a more thorough refresher, we offer a , 3 day course . During this course the diver is able to sit through all the Open Water training sessions, doing as much or as little theory and pool work as they like. This option includes 2 shore dives and 2 boat dives It is priced to make it cost effective and easy to refresh your abilities.  These courses are run alongside our scheduled open water courses as listed on the training calendar.
