Electronic learning (eLearning) is the delivery of education, using your mobile device or web browser. PADI eLearning allows you to begin your dive education at your convenience, using your desktop, laptop or mobile device, and finish your training in the water with a PADI Professional. With PADI eLearning, you complete the knowledge development (academic) portion of the most popular courses at your own pace – studying anytime and anywhere you have a high-speed internet connection or after you have downloaded the product. If you have a busy schedule or just prefer the convenience of learning from your mobile device or computer, eLearning is a great choice.
