Most dive destinations will require a refresher course be done for any diver who hasn’t been on Scuba for a year or more. We offer a refresher program so you can get the bugs worked out before your vacation. This program will help any certified diver get their confidence back by reviewing skills taught in basic open water classes as well as refining buoyancy control. Anything you might want to work on or think needs practice will be addressed as well. You will work directly with an instructor who will make sure you are completely comfortable in the water. All gear rental is provided at no charge but must be reserved ahead of time.
The refresher course consists of one pool session with an instructor and one "open play" pool session. We have pool times available Sunday nights from 4:45 pm - 8:30 pm.
Please use the link in the right-side column to signup and schedule or you can sign up and schedule in-person, over the phone or via email.
Before your Scuba Skills Update & Refresher Course, there is a bit of paperwork you’ll have to fill out. This program requires a minimum of 5 distinct forms. You can find the forms below and complete them ahead of your pool session, most important is the “SCUBA – MEDICAL FORM“. Go through the medical form now and check to see if you need to answer “YES” to any of the questions. If so no big deal – you’ll just need to get a doctors’ sign-off before we can let you in the water. The doctors’ note is in the additional “PHYSICIAN'S RELEASE” file – along with guidelines for your physician. Remember if you answer “YES” to anything in the medical it is NECESSARY to get a doctors’ note BEFORE getting in the water. It’s also important to note if a physician's signature is required, only a medical doctor's (MD) signature will be accepted.

Private courses are set up slightly differently than regular Scuba Refresher Course (scuba skills update) courses. The beginning process is the same - you'll still be required to fill out the same paperwork but you won't be tethered to our schedule. Instead, you can find out whenever works best for you and let us know so we can get the session scheduled - we can even schedule the pool outside our normal pool hours*. Make sure to let us know in advance, as we have to rent the pool and make sure it doesn't conflict with any other activities going on that day. If you do use the pool when we have it rented that's perfect! There will be other people in the pool but you (or your group) will be working privately with your instructor.
*Additional fees (such as pool rental fees) may apply
Private Scheduling is done through Kim and Max in our training department at Training@ecdivers.com. They will be in contact within 24 hours of any inquiries. If you need to contact us sooner please call us at 617-277-2217.
