We offer PADI Drift Diver eLearning (or manual) 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 days (extra fee), you will spend some time with your instructor before each 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 Drift Diver open water ocean dive sessions.
PADI Drift Diver eLearning is a convenient way for student divers to complete the independent study portion of their Drift 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 189 MB.
