PADI® electronic learning (eLearning™) is a convenient way for students to start scuba lessons - even divers with busy schedules.
The online programs offer the most flexible and convenient way to learn diving if you're able to access a computer with a connection to the Internet.
In most cases, eLearning™ programs are available anywhere and anytime. So, you'll be able to complete the basic learning process in your free time and entirely on your own schedule.
PADI will also be keeping track of your progress. This means you can restart the online training class exactly where you ended the last session.
What happens after you finish the online knowledge-based lessons? The system guides you into the scuba training sessions with a PADI Instructor to finish the fun part of the certification - Diving!
In simple terms, a system that delivers education through a mobile device or a web browser (e.g. Google Chrome) is one method of electronic learning.
It allows students to begin dive schooling at their own convenience using a desktop or similar mobile device. Then, they get to decide whether to finish the training with a PADI Professional - which usually takes place in water.
Key takeaways about learning online:
First, you start the academic portion by choosing one of the PADI eLearning Programs for scuba certifications that interests you the most (e.g. the Nitrox Online Course).
