PADI ReActivate

 

 

 

 

If you haven’t been diving for a while and feel you could do with a quick refresher of the basic knowledge and skills before you go diving again, the ReActivate™ program is the perfect way to brush up before jumping back into the water.

Whether you want a few reminders or need to completely go over all the basics, you personalise ReActivate to you: you download ReActivateonto your tablet, mobile device or computer then in your own time you review the topics you feel you need to refresh (or all of the topics if you prefer!). Reactivate will test your knowledge and will correct you if there is anything you miss.

You then go diving with a PADI Professional at any PADI Dive Centre and you get to refresh (or relearn) any of the basic Open Water Skills you may have forgotten - for example most people can't remember how to set up their equipment or how to do their buoyancy check!

If you are thinking about taking one of our Diving Courses   and it's been a while since you completed the Open Water Course. the Reactivate gives you the opportunity to refresh your Open Water Course skills and knowledge back to the level they should be before taking the next step.

Being an Advanced or Rescue diver you will be expected to know the basic open water skills such as how to set up your equipment, how to conduct a proper pre-dive safety check, etc. If you can't remember the steps of these Open Water skills are you ready to be an Advanced Diver? Reactivate could be what you need to better prepare you to take the next level.

Reactivate is quick and easy, and a good way to prepare for your next PADI course or get ready for a someDive Trips on the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland. The best part is, divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a rectivateplacement certification card with a ReActivated date on it.

Any PADI certified diver who wants a refresher or pre-travel update should ReActivate. Dive shops appreciate seeing a recent ReActivate date on your certification card because it means you’re ready to dive in.

Your PADI certification does not expire.  Participation in PADI ReActivate™ is not mandatory, but recommended as an easy way to refresh your foundational scuba safety knowledge and skills if you haven’t been diving in a while. Divers who complete both the knowledge and in-water skill refresher receive a replacement certification card with a “ReActivated thru” date on it.

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is the cornerstone of PADI’s professional-level training. The course focuses on preparing you to function as a PADI Assistant Instructor or Open Water Scuba Instructor by introducing you to the complete PADI System. The course focuses your ability to use all components of the system as a professional dive educator.

What is eLearning?

You may now complete portions of the knowledge development for the IDC via eLearning. After enrolling, PADI's eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the programme efficiently and at your own pace. The eLearning course will be available for use for one year from the time of course registration.

How much does eLearning Cost?

The PADI Instructor Development Course online is $320 (US). The fee covers nine separate topics online to prepare you for the practical sessions needed to complete your Assistant Instructor course or Open Water Scuba Instructor course. The two programmes combined make up the full IDC. After completion of the OWSI course or full IDC, you must successfully complete a PADI Instructor Examination (IE) and also be a CPR & first aid instructor before certification as an Open Water Scuba Instructor.

Will eLearning Save me Time?

Completion of the eLearning will reduce you IDC class time by over 7 hours. IDC candidates who have successfully completed this programme do not need to attend the first day of the IDC. Since you will have completed much of the knowledge development online, time is focused more on the practical sessions of your training. This means you also pay a discounted price of just €750 for your IDC, including AI (Assistant Instructor) and OWSI (Openwater Scuba Instructor). Or €950 for the IDC including AI, OWSI and EFRI (Emergency First Response Instructor). That’s a saving of €150!

There is an Assistant Instructor application fee or an IDC registration fee and IE fee that must be paid to PADI for processing. You will also need to purchase an IDC Crew-Pak and have a current PADI Instructor Manual depending on how recently you may have completed your PADI Divemaster course. There are also other required materials and personal dive equipment that you may already have.

PADI Dive Instructor Course at Scubadive WestHow Does the Instructor Course Work?

The IDC (Instructor Development Course) consists of two sections: the Assistant Instructor and the Open Water Scuba Instructor course. In 2015 you can complete the Assistant Instructor and OWSI in October, one after the other.

The PADI Openwater Scuba Instructor rating sets you apart from the crowd. PADI Instructors are the dive industry's most valued professionals, and can teach the entire range of PADI programmes, from PADI Discover Scubadiving to PADI Divemaster level. After completing the PADI IDC you must attend an Instructor Examination where your teaching skills will be assessed. Upon successful completion of this you can undertake your PADI Specialty Instructor ratings.

PADI has recently stipulated that anyone intending to enrol on an IDC must have a valid Emergency First Response Instructor (EFRI) qualification. Scubadive West will run an EFRI in advance of our full IDC, allowing any current Divemasters to upgrade.

How much will this cost?

The cost to complete the full IDC; that is the Assistant Instructor and Instructor Development Course in 2015; at Scubadive West is €899. The Crewpack must be purchased seperately at a price of €475. The cost to complete the Assistant Instructor (AI) or the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) as a standalone is €499 for each.

The Emergency First Response Instructor Course will cost €450. Scubadive West offers a special package price on the full IDC and the EFRI for €1,200.

Divemaster

Train as a PADI Divemaster

So you want to become a PADI Divemaster?

Becoming a PADI Divemaster is a big step and takes a lot of commitment: you'll be sharpening your dive skills to demonstration quality, developing a professional level understanding of dive theory, organising and conducting scuba diving activities plus assisting with other divers in training.

PADI Divemaster Programme Details

The PADI Divemaster course offered here in Scubadive West consists of three modules:

Keelin-Drew · Knowledge development
· Water Skills and stamina
· Practical Application

There are 12 topics to cover in the Knowledge Development, which you must cover through independent study, projects and discussion. You will purchase a PADI Divemaster Crew Pack, The Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving, the Diving Knowledge Workbook and your own Electronic Multilevel Dive Planner.
Lectures and discussions will be scheduled in order to broaden understanding on all subjects and when all studies are complete you'll take the PADI Divemaster Exams which require a 75% or higher mark for certification.

General Water Skills and Stamina will be evaluated and improved where necessary through timed swims, snorkels, tows and floats. This is to make you an excellent role model for other divers.

Practical application(s) will combine theory and water skills in conjunction with actual confined and open water training dives. Included are dive briefings and a mapping project of a dive site. Again your abilities in this area will be assessed for certification.

PADI Divemaster requirements:

  • PADI Advanced Open Water Cert. (or equivalent) with proof of 20 dives
  • PADI Rescue Diver (or equivalent) & current CPR and First Aid certification
  • Be at least 18 years old at start of training
  • Medical clearance for diving signed by a physician
  • We here at Scubadive West also require that the candidates have their own equipment and maintain the equipment as required. We offer substantial aid in obtaining the equipment here as we intend our DM's to be complete divers upon certification of the course.
  • If the candidate chooses to do Scubadive West's PADI Divemaster Internship (recommended) it is for a six to eight week period here at Scubadive West. Schedule alterations and personal obligations can be dealt with easily! Many of our Divemasters in training just come on weekends.

As you may have gathered there's a lot to it already but don't let that bother you. The Standards for PADI Divemasters are high but the rewards are even higher! Good Divemasters are sought after worldwide by the dive industry, so you will be able to choose a job anywhere in the world. How? ……the PADI 'Pros' web-site has a jobs listing (reads like a sun holiday brochure), which will be available to you when you receive your PADI Divemaster Certification.

When Can I Start my Divemaster Training?
