I did my last dive in May 08, but did not get the divemasters signature. It has been stated in previous threads that the last dive needs to have been within the last year or 18 months. Can anyone give me specifics on this issue? Will I need a refresher course? How much does it cost? Please advise.
Yes, last dive has to be within 18 months and pool dives do not count. Refresher is $50 per person so I have been told.
My last dive was over 12 monthes. I was required to do a check out in the dive pool with the DM. There was no charge. Basically he verified I knew how to clear my mask underwater and release and capture my regulator underwater.
