Step 1 - eLearning

What You Will Do and Learn

Learn about dive skills and decompression theory.

When and Where

You must complete eLearning prior to Step 2A - Scuba Equipment Orientation.

Proceed at a pace that is comfortable for you.

You can do as much as you want at a time, and it will pick up where you left off.

It generally takes 8-15 hours in total to complete.

PADI eLearning uses a web browser on your PC, Mac, or mobile device. You may also use the PADI Training app to complete course modules when you don't have an internet connection. The PADI Training app can be downloaded for free from your device's app store.

How to Proceed

Redeem your eLearning code if you have not already done so. This was in the email you received from PADI.

If you lost your code from PADI, you can redeem it by creating an eLearning account here using the same email address you used when purchasing your eLearning class. Follow the on-screen instructions.

If asked to select a course, be sure to select Open Water Diver and be sure Scuba Frisco is your dive center of record.

Login to eLearning if you have already registered or started.

Upon Completion of eLearning

Print your PADI eLearning Record form at the end of the course.

Give this form to your instructor at your first course session.

You're ready to move on to Step 2A - Scuba Equipment Orientation.
