SCUBA Classes

Description of Courses:

Let the staff of SLO Ocean Currents teach you how to SCUBA dive this year. If you already hold a certification, how about continuing your education through the many different specialty options that we have.

Refresher Course - Little rusty? How about taking a refresher course. In just a few hours time we will have you back up to dive speed. This course gets you back to the basics of making diving easy and fun. Cover topics such as equipment, diving theory, and modern dive science. 

1. Full PADI Re-Activate Course: This includes a link to the PADI Re-activate e-learning course. This is a complete online program, which includes the main portions of the open water course, including videos and knowledge reviews. The online portion is about 3 hours and can be done at your own pace. Once completed we will have a meet and greet with a little lecture as well as getting you fitted for any rental gear you may need. We then head to the pool to work on your main dive skills and any other specific things you want to get more practice. With this program, you will receive a new e-Certification card from PADI and we will sign and stamp your log books. This is a perfect course for those that have not dove in many years and that may have lost their original Certification cards. 

2. Standard Refresher Course: With this course, we will send you a knowledge review that will test your dive knowledge. We will meet at the shop and go over your review and answer any questions you may have. We then will set you up with the dive gear you will need for training and review your SCUBA equipment. Next, we are off to the pool to work on your main dive skills and any other specific things you want to get more practice. We will sign and stamp your log books. This course is for those divers who may have been diving once or twice a year and just want to sharpen their skills before an upcoming trip.
