Anytime, anywhere, Learn to Scuba Dive. eLearning

eLearning with ScubaQuest, NDAC's Training Partner

Get started with PADI eLearning

Learning to scuba dive has never been more convenient!

Whether you're on the go or want to take it slow, now you can complete the knowledge development portion of the PADI Open Water Diver course online with NDAC's training provider, ScubaQuest.

The course

Learning to scuba dive requires both knowledge development (facts, principles, concepts) and practical application (skills,techniques, methods).

The PADI Open Water Diver Course online provides the knowledge development portion you need.

You will develop the remaining skills by actually diving with your ScubaQuest Instructor at the NDAC.

While you're working through the PADI Open Water Diver course online or after you complete all the segments, you can print your eLearning Record and bring it down to the centre to start your underwater adventures.

Get started

After enrolling, PADI’s eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading.

Short quizzes let you self-test your progress, and review and correct anything you might have missed. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.

Completing the course

To complete your course you will then need to book a PADI e-Referral course with ScubaQuest which will be charged separately.

This will include some additional charges for in-water training and equipment rental and your Instructor will also assist you if you want to start investing in your own personal set of equipment, along with the required purchase of a Recreational Dive Planner (Table or eRDP version) and a log book.
