Open-water Diver Course Online does NOT replace the skill development and knowledge assessment in a live class with an instructor. You can’t learn and demonstrate diving motor-skills online. These require interaction with an instructor, in the water. There is sometimes a mistaken idea that PADI eLearning allows a diver to fully qualify for a certification online.
PADI online learning does NOT, by itself, lead to certification. It is simply the best way to learn all the theory BEFORE YOUR TRAINING starts. Simply get ahead with the convenience of taking the theory lessons on line and cut down or out your classroom studying.
However, the online environment is suitable for delivering background knowledge — theory, information and so on — that you apply during live training with your instructor.
PADI Openwater Diver Online delivers the same material that the student gets by reading the PADI Rescue Diver Manual and watching the PADI Open Water Diver Video, in an interactive, self-paced presentation. Many students appreciate the convenience of beginning their learning online. Many also like the integration of reading-hearing-seeing. But, some people still prefer a book and a video — which remain available through the PADI system.
Whether the student develops knowledge with eLearning or conventional book and video, the subsequent knowledge review, skill development and assessments with a PADI Instructor are the same.
If you’ve always wondered what lies beneath the surface, now is the time to find out. Start the journey of a lifetime with the PADI Open Water Diver course. It will change you forever.
Padi open water course divers have FUN and opens a door to a whole new world. Open yours and step in?
