Q&A – The PADI ReActivate™ Program

iPad-ReActivate Cover

Q1. What is the PADI ReActivate™ program?

The PADI ReActivate program is a convenient and prescriptive program that’s designed to encourage existing certified divers who have been inactive to refresh their skills and re-enter the sport of diving.

Q2. Why create a new program?

A recent survey of PADI Divers showed that of those who were not actively diving,  more than 97 percent intended to dive in the future. When asked what would get them back in the water, two popular responses were: “a refresher course that I can complete quickly” and “a prescriptive approach that refreshes only what I’ve forgotten.” ReActivate is designed to give divers what they want – a quick way to refresh what they need to dive comfortably again. The previous Scuba Review program was effective, but not very prescriptive. The new program provides a huge opportunity to re-engage already certified divers and get them to re-ignite their passion for diving and drive them back to PADI Dive Centres and Resorts.

Q3. Will this replace the current Scuba Review program?

Yes. For certified divers who want help getting comfortable with diving again, ReActivate replaces Scuba Review. The materials and approach are also useful in assessing the divers readiness to continue their education.

Q4. How does this program work?

The ReActivate program consists of two sections: knowledge review and in-water skills refresher. To receive a ReActivate date on a replacement certification card, the diver must complete both sections. Some divers may decide to complete only the knowledge review, but the program encourages all participants to complete both sections. Divers complete the knowledge review material using either ReActivate Touch or or ReActivate Online.

ReActivate Touch is an interactive program that works on tablets and mobile devices. It can be purchased two ways – from a PADI Member who provides a ReActivate Touch code or directly through the PADI Library App from the appropriate App store. Divers who purchase the Touch version on their own are required to affiliate with a PADI Dive Centre or Resort.

ReActivate Online is an interactive program designed for personal computers. Divers purchase the access code for ReActivate Online from a PADI Member. After completing all topics in the Touch or Online product, the diver takes the ReActivate Quick Review online as a final assessment. Upon successful completion, divers can download and print a ReActivate Certificate that includes a unique code. The instructor who completes the in-water skill portion enters the code while processing the diver’s ReActivated certification card online.

IE, Maldives 4-5 December 2014

Thomas Sobotta, Regional Manager, Maldives conducted an IE on the beautiful Island Constance Moofushi for Bluetribe Moofushi on the 4-5 December 2014. We wish all the New PADI Instructors lots of success in the future.

IE Moofushi 1

“Moofushi has some of the best logistics around for Instructor training, our lagoon with its various depths, with direct access from the jetty. As a Course Director spending more time in the water this makes all the difference ” says Miles Crookes PADI Course Director and Manager Bluetribe Constance Moofushi”. “I did my IDC and IE at Constance Moofushi with Bluetribe and Thomas Sobotta, during our IDC we had everything at our finger tips.

Of course we were in paradise in the Maldives, the amazing Atoll of Ari. Every evening after each day of training, we we’re able to study all together in the Bluetribe Classroom, everything was so close together, from the restaurant to the dive sites, it was just a few steps away across the sandy beach.  We were able to spend a lot of time in the water practicing our presentations and skills, this made a big difference to our Exam, this was particularly important to me coming from another training organisation.

Thomas also put us straight away at our ease and although we where under the stress of the exam our preparation and the organisation of both IDC & IE where just perfect” says Giuliana Prosdocimo , a newly certified PADI Instructor.

Pro Diaries: Interview with PADI Course Director, Ulf Mayer (by Christian Hubo)

 Author: Christan Hubo – Feel4Nature

As a PADI Course Director Ulf has already reached the highest career level of a PADI Instructor. In this interview Christian Hubo finds out about the typical day of a diving professional.

FEEL4NATURE4

1. When did you start diving and why?

I started in the 90s. I was on holiday in Egypt and tired of hanging around on the beach and in the hotels. Suddenly someone asked “Would you like to do a try dive in the pool?“

So we did a very nice try dive, and I started my PADI Open Water Diver course the next day. For me it was the beginning of a new passion: from that day on every holiday was a dive trip. I started to dive in Germany and did a lot more training – up to the Divemaster course. As a PADI Divemaster I started to help out in a local dive shop and it was there that the idea of becoming an instructor was born.

2. Did you think about turning scuba diving into a career from the beginning?

No. But after my very first open water dive I was brainstorming with my girlfriend about how we could combine diving with our jobs. We were not even considering becoming instructors –we were just impressed by this incredible experience. In those days I worked as a strategic planner in an advertising agency and she was a trainer for communication skills. In fact we were thinking about things I offer today: a combination of team training on one hand and diving topics on the other.

3. Why did you decide to open your own diving school in Essen and how did you find the experience?

To be honest, I never set out to open a dive center in Essen. It just happened. All I wanted was to dive and to get away from my former job as a manager in the advertising industry. And suddenly from nowhere we had our own dive center, and guess what: it was a successful operation! We became a PADI Five Star facility in the shortest possible period of time and we had hundreds of students to teach to scuba dive.

If you were to ask if I would do it again… I don’t think so. Too much retail, too many competitors, not so much good diving. Essen is perfect for running IDCs. We have an airport nearby and course logistics are great. But In my opinion diving is a lifestyle – and to live that kind of lifestyle in a dive center somewhere in the middle of Germany is not an easy thing to do. I only know a very few people who can… my friend Frank from “Franks Dive Center“ in Mülheim is such a diving enthusiast.

4. Why did you decide to go to Thailand and open a Dive Center there?

Well… the original plan was to go to Tanzania and help build the “Beach Crab Resort“. The visa stamp was already in my passport and we’d already celebrated our farewell party with friends. But then I got a phone call from a friend of mine in Thailand saying that the former PADI AP Regional Manager, Rick Ray, was looking for staff for a brand new dive center in a high class resort on a wonderful Island of Phuket – Koh Racha Yai.

I already had strong links to Thailand; I’d worked there as an IDC Staff Instructor for a couple of months every year. So it took only a few emails – and three weeks after the first call I was on a plane to Bangkok.Looking back it was the right decision: years later I saw on a TV documentary that they still had no electricity in the resort in Tanzania – I do not think that this place would be the right place for me.

The dive center on Koh Racha Yai was the dream of every dive professional: top location, top dive sites, very good customer base from all over the world – everything your heart desires.

But, on the 26th December 2004 the Tsunami destroyed everything: the hotel, the dive center – even the dive site in front. But life goes on. I had to restart, and opened a new dive center on the island of Phuket. And there I got the great opportunity to work with some very good Course Directors and learned a lot about teaching other instructors and the dive business. Finally I went to Kota Kinabalu and became a Course Director myself.

5. How was your time in Thailand as a dive center owner? 

You get a different view on a country and its people once you live and work there. The typical friendly and positive attitude the Thais have towards tourists changes a lot once you are an expat and you sometimes have to deal with a level of bureaucracy. On the other hand I met beautiful people there and had a chance to experience real friendship – even after the Tsunami when everything was a mess. We had to fight for our living and had a lot of relief projects to work with as well. We rebuilt dive spots as well as helping fishermen to rebuild their villages and lives.

Looking back I was really lucky to work in a wonderful country, with a lot of wonderful people in an almost perfect surrounding for diving. In the end it was a lifetime experience I will always remember!

6. Over the years youve stayed loyal to PADI as your organization. What do you like about PADI and what do you think could be different?

In every IDC I tell my candidates that PADI stands for “Professional Association…“ not for “Perfect Association…“. Nobody is perfect. But I think PADI is quite close!

In fact for a student diver the certification agency doesn`t play a role at all. For the student, the instructor, their attitude and their teaching skills is what matters the most. But for a professional things are different. A professional needs an organisation with top support and with an outstanding educational system.

PADI is still the leading organisation in the dive industry – and in all those years I couldn`t see anything better for me.

FEEL4NATURE2

7. As a PADI Course Director youve trained many instructors in recent years. Do you believe that you really can still make money in an instructors job?

I believe that you can make money with everything you really love to do.

But as a dive instructor you need more than good training and a professional attitude: You have to be ready to go to where the customers are! If you try to make your living as a PADI Instructor somewhere inland far away from attractive dive sites and a good infrastructure for divers you will face a lot of problems.

And of course you need to stay up to date. If you don’t know anything about the trends and news in the industry you will not be seen as a real professional.

FEEL4NATURE3

8. Many divers dream to travel the world as an instructor with the cliché “work where others are on vacation” – do you think that is realistic and achievable? 

Absolutely! But you have to be aware that the focus is on “work“ not on “holiday“. If you keep that in mind then there are many options for a PADI Instructor to work in the most beautiful places on earth.

9. What are the requirements for a diver who wants to become an instructor?

The most important thing is a passion for diving and for teaching. If you do not love to share your knowledge you won´t be a good instructor. I think a good instructor should inspire their students as well. And of course they need a solid knowledge and skills on a high level and should understand and respect the PADI Standards.

I know there is a lot of discussion about the prerequisites for becoming a PADI Instructor. 100 dives is not what we call “very experienced“. But people should not forget that these are minimum standards. And I do not think that it is the number of dives that counts.

My average candidate has about 200 dives. Most of them have a profession and working experiences and they want a twist in their lives or at least in their diving. I try to help them to achieve this!

I always tell them that following a successful IE the work starts: the new instructors have to learn how teaching and professional diving really works. I always recommend team teaching. That gives them a chance to get into the job and learn from more experienced instructors.

FEEL4NATURE1

10. You’ve probably stayed in contact with your IDC candidates how many would you guess work permanently in the diving industry, or even work as instructors abroad?

There’s actually many of my former candidate working as instructor, dive center manager, dive center owner or tour guides all over the globe. They are in Mexico, Thailand, Egypt, Maldives, Bali, Curacao, Gozo, Mallorca, Crete – they teach on the AIDA and run dive centers in Spain and in Germany.

I would estimate that about 30–40% of all my candidates do earn their living as a dive professional. For the rest, being a PADI Pro is a nice hobby.

11. Do you have any tips on financing – are there any possibilities of grants?

Yes. But it depends on the specific situation of the candidate. There are so many options – from money from the EU to local support funds – I can help to find a solution for almost everybody. In Germany, “dive instructor” is officially seen as a profession and so candidates can use a lot of support programs to help finance their IDC. But as I said before: it depends on the specific situation as to which program to choose and how much money someone can get.

12. Are you also still diving recreationally, or is instructing enough for you?

I still love diving. And I try to dive frequently. Right now I am very enthusiastic about several aspects of technical diving – I love to learn and experience new things and cross the borders.

FEEL4NATURE5

13. Do you have a favourite destination for scuba diving and what was your best experience underwater?

I don’t have a single favourite! I just came back from Spain where I did some very nice dives in the Mediterranean Sea, and the Sipadan or the Similan Islands are awesome.

But sometimes, a dive in the Ruhr river close to the place where I live can also be amazing. You can find artefacts from world war two or remains from criminal activities like weapons, empty cases and so on there. Really exciting.

When I am not on an IDC or doing other courses I enjoy every dive. Even if there is nothing special to encounter – I still love it.


Ulf teaches his IDC (Instructor Development Course) in Essen; he is a successful PADI dive instructor having gained experience with his own diving schools in Germany and Thailand.

Christian also completed his IDC to become an instructor and further training to IDC Staff Instructor with Ulf Mayer and since then has regularly stayed in touch and completed one or two projects together, too.

7 new PADI Instructors from Four Seasons Resort Maldives, Kuda Huraa

ie_maldives

PADI Europe, Middle East and Africa is delighted to welcome 7 new PADI Instructors to the world’s most sought-after community of diving professionals.

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) and Instructor Examination (IE) were both conducted at the Four Seasons Resort Maldives in Kuda Huraa on 15/16th November 2014.

 “It was the first IDC / IE conducted at Four Seasons at Kuda Huraa and all the 7 participants have passed and all had a very good time” – Ibrahim Nazeer, Dive and Recreation Manager, Four Seasons Resort Maldives.

ie_maldives2

Are you ready to join the ranks of the dedicated professionals who teach the world’s most progressive and popular scuba diver education programs? Then Go PRO with the PADI Instructor Development Course.

About the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) & Instructor Examination (IE) 

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program, and teaches you to conduct all PADI core courses. You’ll learn how to better organize and present information, conduct skill development sessions and control open water dives. You’ll become a more confident public speaker and will perfect your demonstration of skills whilst watching out for student diver safety.

Most dive professionals complete the full IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification. The IE is a two-day evaluative program that tests an instructor candidate’s teaching ability, dive theory knowledge, skill level, understanding of the PADI System, and attitude and professionalism.

Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy – being in, around and underwater. PADI Instructors are the most sought-after dive professionals around the world because they’ve completed the program that sets the standard for training dive professionals. You earn a PADI Instructor rating through hard work and commitment, but you’re rewarded with a job that lets you share incredible underwater adventures with others – transforming their lives for the better and enriching yours.

For more details on signing up for the IDC, or for more information on prerequisites and course content, please ask your local PADI 5* IDC Center or visit the PADI Course Catalogue.

PADI Open Water Diver Touch™ Wins Attention of Adobe Systems

OWDT_FPADI, the largest scuba diving training organization with over 136,000 members worldwide, is well known for embracing the latest technology within the diving industry. Products such as ScubaEarth and the PADI App pave the way for digital divers and support the core mission of helping people worldwide learn how to scuba dive.

PADI course materials have continually evolved with emerging technologies, and are developed with student divers’ learning and convenience in mind. Over the decades PADI has published a range of materials including face-to-face presentations, manuals, workbooks, CD-ROMS, DVDs, PADI eLearning and more.

“Mobile devices have had the most rapid acceptance of any technology in history and people expect to do everything — including learn to dive — with them.” – Drew Richardson, CEO and President, PADI Worldwide

Today, more and more consumers are using mobile devices to download, view and interact with content. iOS and Android tablets have become the new classroom and PADI’s move towards tablet-based training makes it easier than ever to reach student divers wherever they go. 

“We have always been on the cutting edge with adapting technology to our educational system so creating an app was a natural next step for our materials”– Drew Richardson, CEO and President, PADI Worldwide

Continuing to innovate the way the world learns to dive, the revolutionary PADI Open Water Diver Touch™ is a tablet edition of the PADI Open Water Diver course. It combines cutting-edge software with expert instruction to bring the most popular scuba diving course in the world to the fingertips of aspiring underwater explorers.

With course content available offline without need for Wi-Fi access, the PADI Open Water Diver Touch is perfect for recapping dive theory in remote diving destinations or during flights. It supports educational studies which show that immersive, interactive material such as tablet content is more readily absorbed compared to traditional print materials.

Even PADI Instructors are noticing the benefit; many state how PADI Open Water Diver Touch students seem better prepared for practical sessions, undoubtedly a result of the accessible, hands-on and fun approach – the secret to successful learning.

“Students love the folio, and I think it was only available for about 10 minutes when instructors were calling me and telling me they love it too. The folio is education that entertains and holds people’s attention.” – Karl Shreeves, Technical Development Executive, PADI Worldwide

A student diver’s journey starts by downloading the free PADI Digital Library App (available from the iTunes App Store for iOS and Android Apps on Google Play) and registering for the PADI Open Water Diver Touch program via their local PADI Dive Center or Resort. When updates are available, the PADI Digital Library App will send a push notification to alert the user so they can stay up to date with the latest downloads.

The PADI Open Water Diver Touch uses the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) to integrate compelling text with fun videos, audio clips, animations, illustrations, quizzes, photos and other highly interactive elements. Supporting interactivity and gesture-led navigation, the use of Adobe DPS made it easy to deliver an intuitive, content-led learning experience to student diver, ensuring they access the right content at the right time in their training.

“We set out to invent the future of diver education. PADI Open Water Diver Touch is a fully interactive application that engages students with the materials. It combines the entertainment factor of video with the rich content of a book all rolled into one.” – Karl Shreeves, Technical Development Executive, PADI Worldwide

Countless students around the world have already fallen in love with the PADI Open Water Touch; the interactive, immersive experience brings diving alive in a way never seen before, giving them a view of underwater life before they even reach sand or sea.

But the PADI Open Water Diver Touch hasn’t just turned the heads of students and dive professionals; it’s caught the eye of software giant Adobe Systems, too. Adobe – the name behind global products such as Acrobat Reader, Photoshop and Flash Player – were so impressed with the inventive use of DPS in bringing scuba diver training to life that they’ve created an entire case study on how PADI have taken the DPS to new levels.

Visiting the PADI Americas regional headquarters in California, Adobe filmed one-one interviews with the PADI staff who held key roles in the creation of the PADI Open Water Diver Touch. View the resulting video below and the online case study document here.

“Throughout the development stages of the PADI Open Water Diver Touch, we knew we were creating a first-of-its kind technology for the industry, and ultimately changing the way people learn to dive. Leveraging Adobe’s DPS technology enabled PADI to achieve this goal with an amazing platform that pushes our content out across mobile channels. What we didn’t expect was to gain Adobe’s interest in learning more about our development of the program, and using it as a case study for DPS. We’re grateful to have developed a relationship with Adobe through this and look forward to leveraging its technology for future endeavors.” – Drew Richardson, CEO and President, PADI Worldwide.

The case study will be distributed by Adobe Systems to promote the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite to new and existing clients, but the resulting global exposure will benefit of PADI, PADI Members and the diving industry as a whole by opening doors to a wider audience of potential scuba divers.

By choosing the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite, PADI development staff were able to create the PADI Open Water Diver Touch and PADI Digital Library App without the usual expense and time resources demanded by folio production. This has created opportunity for a series of PADI Touch programs to be rolled out in future, such as the newly-launched PADI Equipment Specialist Touch™ and PADI ReActivate Touch™. PADI Professionals who access the PADI Digital Library App can also download the “Win with PADI” folio which illustrates PADI’s unique value proposition.

Through Adobe Cloud, PADI have access to a built-in analytics dashboard, with insights that will prove invaluable to ensuring that student divers’ needs continue to be met and exceeded.

“We can learn how people are using and navigating through the folio and where they are spending their time. That helps us make the product better and continue to evolve it.” – Kristin Valette, Vice President Marketing and Communications, PADI Americas
