Learning to Dive Online

Our online elearning websites help you develop the knowledge you need. You'll do it at your own pace from the comfort of your own home. And the best part is that you can start your class right now.

What is elearning?

In a traditional scuba class the student will read the training manual before the class begins. They will then attend at least one classroom session with the instructor to review the materials and take a series of quizzes. All of this is now done at your own pace using PADI's Elearning or Touch options.

How Does It Work?

After enrolling, PADI's Elearning or Touch system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.

Computer or Tablet?

PADI Elearning and Touch integrate the PADI Open Water Diver Manual with the PADI Open Water Diver Video into a powerful, digital learning experience. Elearning is a computer based application that requires internet access. Touch is a tablet based application. After you download the Touch, you don’t need to be online to use it so you can truly learn anytime, anywhere. Want to try it? Download the free PADI Library app for Apple or Android and experience the Touch introduction.

Will I be certified after I complete the elearning?

Not quite yet. Remember there are three parts of the open water scuba certification class; academics, pool dives and ocean dives. You will still need to complete the pool dives and ocean dives to receive your certification.

Is elearning better?

Experience has shown that the elearning student is better prepared at the start of the class. This is due to the interactive nature of the elearning experience. With all the pop-up help windows and video the learning experience is greatly enhanced. Plus the student gets instant feedback on how they are progressing in the class.
