What does it cover?

The online version of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course will include knowledge development for the two required topics the Deep and Underwater Navigation Dives along with five of the most popular elective dives. These include Night Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck Diver, Boat Diver and Underwater Naturalist. As with the PADI Open Water Diver course, the entire PADI Adventures in Diving manual will be available online to divers enrolled in the course. Experience real adventure and be one step closer to Master Scuba Diver ? the ultimate non-professional certification in recreational diving. You must be a PADI Open Water Diver before participating in any in water training.

How does it work?

After enrolling, PADI's eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.

What does it cost?

The PADI Advanced Open Water Course online is $120 US nonrefundable. The fee covers the knowledge development training as well as unlimited access to the entire PADI Adventures in Diving manual online.

How long do you have to complete the eLearning course?

The eLearning course will be available for one year from the time of course registration.

Why does the course only cover these dives?

After surveying PADI Members around the world (particularly those who issue a large number of Advanced Open Water Diver certifications), these dives were identified as the most commonly offered.
