Options for beginner certification
There are currently two options for completing basic certification online:
1. Standard eLearning
Standard eLearning is performed on a laptop or PC connected to the Internet. The student is able to view course videos and complete quizzes and exams. To register for this option, click Purchase an eLearning Course from the PADI eLearning Home Page. Then select Open Water Diver – English from the dropdown menu.
2. Touch Course
The PADI eLearning Touch Course is currently available for Apple iPad users. PADI intends to release the course to Android tablet users in the near future. The Touch Course is downloadable to your tablet, is highly interactive, and proivdes maximum flexibility and mobility. Since the course videos and other material resides on your tablet, this option does not require an internet connection for you to complete most portions of the course. This is ideal for students on the go who may wish to complete eLearning while on a plane, at the beach, or anywhere an Internet connection is not available.
To register for the Touch Course, click Purchase a Touch Course from the PADI eLearning Home Page. Then select Open Water Diver English – Touch from the dropdown menu.

Other PADI eLearning courses
In addition to the basic Open Water Diver course, the following PADI courses are available through eLearning:
Advanced Open Water Diver
Digital Underwater Photographer
Enriched Air Diver
Instructor Development Course

What all PADI eLearning students should know
Students who select the eLearning option for any PADI course should understand that there are two fees involved in most eLearning training: PADI eLearning fees and Aquatic Adventures fees. Pool training and/or open water training required for the desired certification level must still be completed in addition to the eLearning material. PADI eLearning is only a substitute for a portion of the required classroom training.
Finally, eLearning students should also understand that diving is a group activity and interaction with other students and the instructor is a valuable part of scuba training. PADI eLearning students should be prepared to assume a greater responsibility for building relationships during other portions of their training, as personal interaction in eLearning is more limited than in our traditional courses.
