Padi eLearning

It doesn't get any easier
  • Take classes online on your own time and at your own pace.

  • Save time from driving to and from the shop for class sessions.

  • Convenient online access to course material for 12 months

  • Unlimited access to an online version of the PADI Open Water Manual.



Whether you're on the go or want to take it slow, now you can complete the coursework for several PADI certifications (see list below), online with PADI e-Learning. 


It's easy, simply click via the link above or on any of the corresponding course pages. You will be asked to register and pick a login name and password. You will also be prompted for a credit card payment which will give you access to the required PADI knowledge development materials. The amount paid will be deducted from the total course cost when you come into the shop to begin your training dives. 

What does it cover? The PADI Open Water Diver course is, by far, the world's most popular scuba certification course. Millions of people have started diving as certified PADI Open Water Divers. Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge development (facts, principles, concepts) and motor procedures (skills, techniques, methods). The PADI Open Water Diver Course online provides the knowledge development portion you need. You develop the remaining skills by actually diving with a PADI Instructor here at White River Dive Company.


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 Open Water Diver Course online is $195 (US) and is nonrefundable. The fee covers your knowledge development training and gives you unlimited access to an electronic version of the PADI Open Water Diver Manual (course textbook). You will be charged an additional fee for the in-water portion of your certification. You will also need to purchase a mask, snorkel, pair of fins, dive boots, and other personal dive equipment such as a Recreational Dive Planner (Table or eRDP version) and a log book. Don't forget to ask about new student discounts toward your gear purchase.
