Haven’t been diving lately and want a quick scuba refresher? Perfect to do over the Winter months, the PADI ReActivate program is the ideal way to update your dive skills and knowledge from the PADI Open Water Diver course before jumping back into the water once travel destinations re-open.

Whether you want a few reminders or need to go over the basics, ReActivate is personalised 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 holiday.

Divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.


  • Our staff are here to help you learn to dive, not just tick a box. We are not a certification ‘factory’ we are here to train safe and confident divers.
  • We keep our class sizes small so you feel more comfortable and get the most out of your session.
  • Everything is explained in simple steps, guided by our experienced instructing team.
  • We understand that you haven’t dived for a while and refreshing your skills may take time and patience!


  • Shortly after booking, you will receive an email with your unique access code. You will then be able to access the relevant knowledge development online or via the App (iOS or Android).
  • Complete the ReActivate knowledge review online or via the App – this should take approximately 1.5 hours
  • Book your ReActivate Pool session with Aquanaut. We can run Reactivate pool sessions most Wednesday evenings at New Malden Leisure Centre and Friday evenings at Putney Leisure Centre.
  • On completion of both the pool session and the knowledge development, you will receive a ReActivated certification card of your choice (most divers select their most advanced certification).


  • You must have proof of diver certification or be enrolled in a scuba training program.
  • You should be in relatively good health and fitness and you will need to make sure that you can answer ‘no’ to all the questions on the medical questionnaire, if not you will need medical clearance from a doctor.
