PADI Scuba Diver

Course overview

The PADI Scuba Diver eLearning course is ideal for those who want to obtain a diving certification but don’t have enough time to complete the Open Water Course, aren’t sure if they are ready for it yet, or are only interested in always diving alongside a PADI Professional guide.

In this course, you’ll learn the basic skill set to dive safely and get a scuba diving certification without too much time commitment. It is also a great way to introduce children to the underwater world and begin their scuba diving journey.
