If you have not been diving for a few months and are looking to blow a few bubbles and get back into the swing of things, option 1 is perfect for you. You will jump in the pool during one of our regularly scheduled programs and spend up to 1.5 hours practicing your skills, alongside your buddy. Please remember to bring your certification card to show the Ocean Sports’ staff member at the pool, as well as any snorkel gear and equipment you own. Gear rental (as needed) is included in the price and must be clearly specified at time of booking.
**Note this option will NOT provide a signature in your log book for a certified refresher, as you are not working directly with a PADI professional.
This class is held at the NAIT pool on select Tuesday evenings from 7:00PM until 8:45PM.
Please complete the liability waiver and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org a minimum of two days prior to your course. You will need to meet on the pool deck at 6:30PM to get geared up and provide proof of certification to the instructor (also required at time of registration).

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.
You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During a practical session, and two optional (or required) scuba dives, you’ll:
- Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
- Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
- Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
We offer this course in class as well as online - learn when and where its convenient for you!
This course can be taken after completing the PADI Open Water Diver certification. It's titled PADI Advanced Open Water Diver because it advances your diving knowledge & skills.
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course online includes knowledge development for the two required topics; the Deep and Underwater Navigation Adventure Dives, along with five of the most popular elective dives. These include Night Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Diver, Boat Diver and Underwater Naturalist.
As with the PADI Open Water Diver course, the entire PADI Adventures in Diving manual (complete with all Adventure Dive possibilities) will be available online to divers enrolled in the course. Please note that if you wish to complete the PADI Enriched Air Diver (nitrox) or Digital Underwater Photographer Adventure Dives then the relationship to the Adventures in Diving program differs slightly. You will need to complete the knowledge development for those two programs separately, either through the PADI Enriched Air Online or Digital Underwater Photography Online programs or by purchasing the student manuals from your local PADI Dive Center.
Experience real adventure and be one step closer to Master Scuba Diver – the ultimate non-professional certification in recreational diving.

Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season? Then dive dry. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. There is incredible diving in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often.
If you’re at least 10 years old and certified as a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course.
During two dives, in addition to a confined water dive (Tuesday evening prior to the lake dives), you’ll practice:
- Putting on and taking off your dry suit with minimal assistance.
- Mastering buoyancy control using your dry suit.
- Dive safety procedures when using a dry suit.
Please call or email email@example.com for more information or if you require another date.
Update your dive skills and knowledge with a quick scuba refresher from the PADI Open Water Diver Course before jumping back into the water.
ReActivate is personalized for you: You conveniently review scuba concepts on your tablet, mobile device or computer, then go diving with a PADI Professional. You can choose either a Tuesday evening (7:00-8:45PM course) or a full weekend course.
