PADI e-Learning Open Water

With PADI e-Learning, you complete the knowledge development (classroom) portion of the most popular courses at your own pace – studying anytime and anywhere you have a high-speed internet connection. If you have a busy schedule or just prefer the convenience of online study, e-Learning is a good choice to get certified. To explain a bit more; the PADI Open Water Diver course consists of three main phases:

Knowledge Development | Confined Water Dives | Open Water Dives

  • The Knowledge Development part teaches you the basic principles and rules of scuba diving.
  • During the Confined Water Dives you will learn & practise the basic scuba skills.
  • Open Water Dives give you the opportunity to demonstrate your skills and explore the underwater world!

The whole course would take you around 3 to 4 days from start to finish. That includes all the Knowledge Development, 5 Confined Water dives & 4 Open Water Dives. e-Learning would save you some 10 hours of time to spend at the beach.

The good thing about the PADI e-Learning or PADI Open Water Touch is that you can save yourself a lot of time on your holiday. Completing the Knowledge Development part at home, will prepare you to immediatly start with the pool sessions when you arrive in Boracay.
