Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

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.

How long do you have to complete the eLearning course?

You need to complete the first training dive within one year of completing the PADI Advanced eLearning course. However, once you gain access to the eLearning and complete a knowledge review quiz, you will always have lifetime access to the content.

How do you document that you've completed the eLearning segment?

Once you finish the eLearning portion of the course, the Ocean Frontiers Dive Center is notified that you have completed it and that you are ready for the practical phase of the program.
