The PADI Open Water Diver course includes three parts.1. Knowledge Development: This covers the principles, concepts and terms you need to know for dive safety and enjoyment. This portion of the course will be completed online and independently using PADI eLearning that will allow students to work on the classroom sessions at their convenience. Registrants will be emailed a link for eLearning content registration. Students will have a limited time to complete the eLearning portion of this course.
