Open Water Dive Course

This course is built around PADI's eLearning system. PADI's eLearning online system allows you to do the practical part of the Open Water scuba course in just 3-4 days.

The eLearning online system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos of diving, supported audio & graphics. 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. You can continue your training anywhere you can access the internet, and this avoids lengthy classroom sessions.

After you have successfully completed the eLearning part of the Open Water Dive course, then you can proceed to the practical part of the course which has the following basic structure:
