The East Coast Divers Refresher is designed to help divers build the comfort and confidence they need to get back in the water safely after a brief hiatus. No matter what agency you used for your original training, this SSI Scuba Skill Update program provides you with the opportunity to review and practice the basic scuba skills that you learned in your original open water diver training program. It also allows ECD instructors the flexibility to work with divers to identify areas of concern, deficits, or important guideline updates.
Most dive destinations will require a refresher course to be completed by any diver who hasn’t been on Scuba for a year or more. The course may also be required for continuing your diving training after a long period of time away from the sport. All divers will benefit from a refresher to shake the rust off or adjust new equipment before dive travel. 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 and trim. 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 an SSI online training (accessible in perpetuity), one pool session with an instructor, and one followup play session at the pool.
