PADI Scuba Review, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia – Refresh your knowledge
If you are a certified diver, haven’t dived for a while, and fancy getting wet again during your holiday in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, then the PADI Scuba Review Program is an ideal choice for you. The main purpose of the PADI Scuba Review program is to help certified divers update their scuba diving knowledge and refresh their diving skills.
The PADI Scuba Review Program with Borneo Dream in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, is a one (1) day program. During the program, you will complete the following:
- A Knowledge Review section. This section of the program covers the basic safety information divers learn during their entry-level training (typically the PADI Open Water course). The Knowledge Review will be completed with the aid of quizzes, and your PADI Instructor will focus the session on specific areas where your diving knowledge needs to be refreshed.
- A Diving Skills Review (in confined water). During this confined water skills review session, you will have the opportunity to practice twenty (20) basic scuba diving skills. Some of the diving skills you will practice include dive gear assembly, proper dive descents and ascents, recovering and clearing a regulator and buoyancy control. The skills session helps divers to update and fine-tune their diving ability.
- A guided open water dive in the afternoon. Divers will be taken for a leisure dive along a pretty coral reef and will have the opportunity to both enjoy the underwater world as well as further refine their diving buoyancy skills.
This diving experience takes place in safe diving conditions at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park (TARP), located just in front of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
As an alternative to the PADI Scuba Review, you could check out the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Course if you wish to focus on improving your diving buoyancy. After your PADI Scuba Review Course, you could join our diving trip to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, so you get to go fun diving with your newly refreshed diving skills.
