Ready to start your scuba diving lessons?

Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge development – including facts, principles and concepts – and dive skills including techniques and methods. PADI Open Water Diver Online uses videos, audio, graphics and reading to help you learn, plus short quizzes that let you gauge your progress, and then offers a review of anything you happen to miss. You develop dive skills during actual dives with a PADI Instructor at your local PADI Dive Center or Resort. By completing knowledge development online, you’re ready to meet with your instructor and start having fun in the water.
