Easy 3 Steps!!!  Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver (eLearning, Pool & Open Water dives) includes three main phases:


Step 1 ( Home Study )

What You Learn

Knowledge Development to understand basic principles of scuba diving.

Unlike many other dive schools, your Private Instructor will e-mail you a PADI code to begin study online in the PADI eLearning system (please see below). You can study whenever you want at your leisure. We also include your crewpack with the PADI Logbook & Dive Tables.

Your materials will cover what you need to know about basic scuba diving skills, terminology and safety procedures. For each concept you’ll read a description, take quizzes and watch a video demonstration.

Once you have completed the online PADI academic sessions you will be ready to jump in the pool (or pool-like environment) to practice these skills with your instructor. See the Step 2.

PADI eLearning* allows you to begin your dive education at your convenience and finish your training in the water with your Personal Instructor. With PADI eLearning, you complete most of the classroom portion at your own pace.  If you have a busy schedule or just prefer the convenience of having your materials in digital form, eLearning is a good choice for you.

Online or Offline which method is good for you?

Offline version works best on mobile and tablet devices. Internet is only needed to download materials at the beginning and upload progress upon completion.
