What do these courses cover?

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.

The online version of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course will include knowledge development for the two required topics – the Deep and Underwater Navigation Dives – along with five of the most popular elective dives. These include Night Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Diver, Boat Diver and Underwater Naturalist. As with the PADI Open Water Diver course, the entire PADI Adventures in Diving manual will be available online to divers enrolled in the course. Experience real adventure and be one step closer to Master Scuba Diver – the ultimate non-professional certification in recreational diving. You must be a PADI Open Water Diver before participating in any inwater training.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver Course online includes all the knowledge development requirements for the course. You’ll also have unlimited access to the PADI Enriched Air Diver manual online for reference after you have completed the course.
