Importance of a scuba diving refresher course

Updated: Dec 2, 2020

Learning to scuba dive requires certain skills as well as remembering the rules of diving. Diving safely requires remembering those skills and rules. However, lots of certified divers leave large periods of time between dives, months or sometimes even years may pass between dives due to financial or family circumstances, or you may only dive once a year on an annual vacation. In any case, if you haven’t been diving for a while, it’s wise to take a scuba refresher course.

The industry standard is that after 6 months of not diving it is highly recommended for divers to do a refresher course and after 12 months it is mandatory. That is why Scuba Legendz offers the perfect solution with its Refresher Programme. Working with one of our experienced dive team members, we will review your knowledge and help you refresh your skills in a safe environment.

Why should you take a refresher at all? Why not just jump straight back in? Here are a few reasons.
