We offer PADI (DAD) Dive Against Debris eLearning (or presentation) for your learning the dive theory or academic portion of your the program; with eLearning you can finish the class portion on your own pace and in your own free time, and you don't have to drive or spend more time in person going through this information.
On your required ocean dive day (extra fee), you will spend some time with your instructor before the dive, to answer all of your questions and concerns. We'll also do a brief review to test your knowledge. Then you're into the ocean to put that knowledge into practice!
You can purchase the eLearning for now then come back to pick the dates for your Wreck open water ocean dive sessions.
PADI Dive Against Debris Diver eLearning is a convenient way for student divers to complete the independent study portion of their DAD Diver specialty course from a laptop/desktop computer or mobile device.
The best experience is to study online, however, if students find themselves without internet for periods (such as when commuting or traveling) or have inconsistent, poor internet services, they can download content to study offline via the PADI Training app.
The PADI Training app is available for Apple® iOS devices and Android™ devices. It’s best if devices are no more than three generations old. Content can be downloaded in sections for download convenience with a total file size of approximately 185 MB.
Make a difference on every dive by activating your inner citizen scientist. During the Dive Against Debris® Diver Specialty course, you’ll learn how ocean plastic and trash cleanups not only keep your local dive sites healthier, but also how to contribute to a global database that documents our planet’s marine debris problem. Under the guidance of your instructor, you’ll participate in a Dive Against Debris survey and turn your passion for the underwater world into real action.
