PADI eLearning facility offers flexible web-based education for the knowledge development sections of scuba courses.
This allows dive students to learn how to dive at home, and then finish the training on a diving holiday in another area.
A PADI instructor teaches the remaining in-water skill lessons at your chosen PADI Dive Center or Resort, such as the Private Scuba Team in Pattaya.
The PADI Open Water Diver course is, by far, the world's most popular scuba certification course. Millions of people have started diving as certified PADI Open Water Divers.
Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge development (facts, principles, concepts) and motor procedures (skills, techniques, methods).
The PADI Open Water Diver Course online provides the knowledge development portion you need. You develop the remaining skills by actually diving with a PADI Instructor at your local PADI Dive Center or Resort.

After enrolling, PADI's eLearning 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.
The PADI Open Water Diver Course online is $146 (US) nonrefundable. The fee covers your knowledge development training and gives you unlimited access to an electronic version of the PADI Open Water Diver Manual (course textbook).
Your PADI Dive Center or Resort will charge an additional fee for the in-water portion of your certification. You will also need to purchase a mask, snorkel, pair of fins, and other personal dive equipment.
Your PADI Dive Center or Resort will guide you through this process and may suggest additional equipment along with the required purchase of a Recreational Dive Planner (Table or eRDP version) and a log book.
