Project Description

We are Boston's premier diving education center for Scuba Refresher Classes (scuba skills update) and other scuba lessons in Massachusetts and New England!

About The Course:


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 Contact East Coast Divers 617-277-2216 with any questions.

Before Class

Note - All the paperwork you'll need along with a "what to do before class" checklist is located in the corresponding tab.

Before your Refresher there is a bit of paperwork you'll have to fill out. The most important piece is the medical release form. This form can be printed out and brought to the pool at the time of the Refresher.

"What to do before class" checklist

There are a couple of forms that can be done ahead of time, most importantly is the medical release form. Go through the 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 pool. The doctors' note is in the same file as the medical - Just scroll down to the next page. Remember "IF" you answer "YES" to anything in the medical it is NECESSARY to get a doctors' note BEFORE getting in the pool.



Below to you can find an up to date schedule with all of our available Refresher pool sessions. Just remember you need to sign up at LEAST two days in ADVANCE. You can schedule in-person, over the phone or via email.
