This course offers participants an accelerated PADI open water dive course which is conducted over 2 days (prerequisites apply) - as opposed to the traditional 4 day courses.
In order to satisfy the requirements of this accelerated course, participants must have completed the theory portion (i.e. knowledge development) prior to applying.
The related theory work may be completed at home over the Internet as part of an e-Learning package on the PADI website.
About PADI e-Learning System:
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 Certified Dive Center.
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.
Assistance with this can be arranged by us, alternatively you may organise it at your own convenience.
Doing the accelerated course was so quick and easy. Great option to do the theory online at home, with multiple languages to choose from = a perfect option for international visitors. The practical component was well organized and the equipment was really good. Very friendly, helpful and experienced instructors!
Excellent course. The instructors were friendly and experienced and I had a ball, this is not something you get to do everyday and I would honestly reccommend it to anyone who is not affraid to put in the effort.
