Start Your PADI Scuba Education Online.

If you’re looking for a flexible way to fit a scuba certification into your busy schedule or if you just prefer web based learning, then PADI’s online scuba programs are the way to go.

Options for online certification.

There are currently two options for completing basic certification online:

Standard eLearning

PADI eLearning is user friendly online multi-media resource designed for use with windows based computers. It enables student divers to cover the theory sections of various PADI courses in their own time, wherever they are, as long as they have good internet access. It uses video, images, animation, narrative and immediate feedback on quizzes to guide you through theory content in an interactive and rewarding manner.

Touch Course

Touch is an extremely modern and up to date way of tackling the theory element of a number of PADI courses. It is very accessible and interactive and has been specifically designed for tablet and smartphone (iOS and Android). It exists for ReActivate, the Open Water Course, the Rescue Diver Course and the Equipment Specialty. Interactive, rich in video, a very modern and fun learning experience.

How to register

Regardless of which eLearning course you wish to take, registration follows these steps.

PADI eLearning courses

  • Open Water Diver

What all PADI eLearning students should know

The amount paid for e-learnig will be deducted from the total Course cost when you come into the Dive Academy. 

Pool training and/or open water training required for the desired certification level must still be completed in addition to the eLearning material. PADI eLearning is only a substitute for a portion of the required classroom training.
