PADI eLearning explained……….
How does it work?
First you need to decide if you wish to use either a PC or Tablet for your home study. We recommend the iPad version as it is more user friendly. If you plan to use your iPad or other tablet then select the ‘Touch’ digital course. If you plan to use a PC for your web based study then select the ‘eLearning’ digital course when registering. Please note that once you pick your method you cannot change half way through.
During your course booking you will be asked which option you wish to choose. Within 24 hours you will receive an email from us with details on how to activate your online account. 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.
What else do I need when I arrive at the center?
Once you finish the eLearning portion of the course you must print out your eRecord and bring a copy of it with you to the Dive Center on the day of your pool training. You will take a short multi-choice review to confirm your understanding of safety-related material from the course.
How long do I have to complete the course?
The eLearning course will be available for one year from the time of course registration. Though you must finish the online portion of the course within that time frame, you will have perpetual access to an online version of the PADI manuals.
How long will it take to complete the home study program?
Depending on which course you are taking the times vary slightly but they all take approximately 10 hours to complete.
