During the PADI Open Water Diver course, you’ll learn what you need to know to explore the underwater world using scuba. The PADI Open Water Diver course includes three parts: knowledge development, confined water dives, and open water dives. This e-learning course will cover the complete knowledge development parts, assessments and certification card. During your practical training sessions, the theory will be repeated and put into practice. So before you get into the water you will be learning basic dive theory in the comfort of your home.
How does it work?
The theory consists of audiovisual and written explanations, knowledge reviews, quizzes and final exam. Before starting and completing the online training, we will schedule two private online-meetings. One of our amazing PADI Instructors will meet you on this days in our virtual classroom. Once you have finished the e-learning, and we will be able to travel again, you can schedule your training in the water. This confined water training and open water dives can be done either with us here in Colombia or in any other PADI dive center in the world.
