Weronika E-learning PADI Open water course

You want to learn to scuba dive but you are limited on your time spent on Koh Tao - not to worry as the PADI Open water course can also be conducted via the PADI E-learning program.

Prior to arrival you register online with PADI to take the PADI open water course and complete all the videos, knowledge reviews and quizzes online. You will also complete the Final Exam online and then you will receive a completion form.

Once you arrive to our Assava Dive Centre we would then schedule the e-learning course for the pool and open water dives. The duration of the course can be completed over 2 or 3 days and this choice is yours.

Day 1 : Quick Review/Paperwork and Confined pool session of skills

Day 2 : Open water dives 1 & 2 to 12m

Day 3 : Open water dives 3 & 4 to 18m

Veronica Elearning

By taking the E-learning option this gives you more time to enjoy and explore the island, as the course is practically only taking up 1/2 of your days.  Weronkia recently completed her PADI E-learning course with instructor Jack Van Geel. Here she had the opportunity to have fun learning the PADI open water course but also be able to explore the nearby bays for snorkelling, and hiking to the viewpoints with the free time available.
