Learning to dive with eLearning and Touch
For many years PADI has offered training on electronic platforms. Educational technologies have evolved, and PADI was able to evolve by offering platforms adapted to our current lifestyle. It’s a great way to learn to dive for those with complicated schedules.
PADI is the leader in dive education, and has developed two interactive educational tools.
The Touch is a scuba diving manual and DVD integrated on a tablet format. Very dynamic, but does not replace a scuba diving course.
A very important Touch advantage, it can be used offline once it’s been downloaded.
Open Water Diver
The eLearning program is a substitute for the theory portion of the scuba diving course. In this type of program, the multimedia presentation homogeneously incorporates the manual, the knowledge reviews, the quizzes, the exam, and the DVD. It has proven itself for many years. The best advantage of the eLearning program is time. The eLearning programs are done on the computer via the internet. You only have to choose the time that suits your schedule, and then join us at the pool.
As tempting as this option may be, please take into consideration these factors.
Diving is much more than a sport but also a social activity. A traditional class room setting enables you to socialize with other student divers. Who knows, they may be your future dive buddies!
During a traditional training you chat with the instructor who has a vast diving experience. Your instructor has many exiting stories and will share his passion for local diving, such as at Kahwawake! The eLearning program has a varied and dynamic program but is geared with a more global environment in mind.
Many of our clients like having a paper manual. But one of the advantages of eLearning is that the information is continuously updated. Books must wait until the next edition.
The eLearning program is slightly more expensive than the traditional method. It’s a different product and is more upscale. For all eLearning students registering with us, we will offer a $50 credit upon $200 of equipment purchased.
If you have a complicated schedule, eLearning is perfect for you. We will be there to assist you at each step of your training.
We offer all our eLearning students a private meeting with one of our store Experts in order to assist you before your pool session. We’ll take the time to discuss local diving and share a couple diving stories.
