PADI eLearning

  • During the eLearning you will watch videos and learn what this scuba thing is all about. As you go through you will watch videos and write quizzes to ensure understanding. Don’t worry, if you get a question wrong you’ll be taken back to review the information and get to re-write the quiz.
  • eLearning allows you to go at your own pace. On average it takes 10-15 hrs to complete the eLearning.
  • Once you’ve finished print off your e-record. You’ll need to give this to your instructor when you come for the pool dives.
  • Download and complete a Medical Statement before you start. If you answer “yes” to any of the medical questions, you must see your doctor to obtain approval to start diving. If you have any questions, please call us at 905-883-3483.
  • The fee for the eLearning is 100% non-refundable.
  • Sign up for PADI’s online eLearning course.
