Scuba Diving Refresher Course & Scuba skills update
Our Refresher course is an easy diving program that allows inactive divers to refresh their scuba skills with either a half day or full day option. If you haven’t been scuba diving lately, lost your dive card, and want a quick refresher with an instructor then the SSI Scuba Diving Refresher is the training program for you..
n August 2018 we commenced development at the Kata beach location creating a unique dive resort for beginners with a purpose built private dive pool, this is due to open in late October 2018. The resort will offer affordable rooms with onsite restaurant, massage with the advantage of being 100m from the main Beach at Kata.
This refresher will take you less time than you think! It is completed at the dive resort in our private pool or while diving from the beach at Kata (1 dive) or on a boat day trip (2 or 3 dives).
Phuket dive tours are one of the few dual scuba diving agencies in Phuket that offer scuba diving courses from both PADI & SSI having received 2 awards in 2017 from PADI who proudly recognised both our outstanding contributions to the diving industry as well as awarding us the PADI 5 Star rating. In January 2018 we also joined SSI (Scuba schools International) to offer our customers even more choice on scuba diving education. As our team of instructors are licensed to teach both PADI & SSI courses
The Scuba Skills refresher provides all certified divers including PADI SSI BSAC SDI with a safe and enjoyable way to refresh and update safety and skills, especially if it has been a while since your last dive..
It can also provide non-certified open water referral diver students with another practice session before participating in their open water training dives.
These academic materials review some of the information you learned during your open water diver program, and are designed to supplement the in-water portion of the refresher program.

Who qualifies for a refresher course
Any diver from any training agency who is already certified can choose to complete this program for open water certification level they already hold provided the program involves in-water training.
Divers can choose to use the program materials just to refresh their knowledge and Re activate their passion for scuba diving.

Talk to your instructor before your refresher class begins, and discuss your expectations for the update program. They can adjust your in-water experience to focus on skills that you may have forgotten, or to review skills that may be useful for your next dive adventure.
The use of modern day mobiles and tablets are making it easier for people to refresh scuba divers knowledge and skills that you may have forgotten before going on a diving holiday or day trip. This short course will simply make it easy for you to get back into diving safely and bring back any confidence you may be missing.
