Start at home--finish abroad!
PADI e-learning is a great way to start your scuba diver training. Start learning at home and then complete the practical aspects abroad with Deep Blue Dive Center.
The great thing about PADI eLearning® is that you can begin your scuba education online using any electronic device. Connect online with your computer, laptop, or mobile device and start the academic portion of your course. You can then finish the practical part in the water with your PADI professional. For those who have busy schedules or prefer to study on their own online, then this is a great choice.

PADI Referral Program
A PADI referral makes it easy for you to start your scuba training at home and then travel abroad to finish the course. Many people enjoy this because it allows them to do most of the academic and confined water portion of the course close to home. Then they can complete the open water portion while enjoying a nice vacation and avoid having to read and study a book.
It is easy to work with the PADI Referral Course because they have divided their training into three phases. Each phase builds upon the other:
Phase one: knowledge development
Phase two: confined water dives
Phase three: open water dives
Many people choose to complete the first two phases at home and then travel to their desired destination to complete the open water with a PADI Dive Center. It usually takes about a day or two to complete phase three of the PADI Beginner and Advanced Courses. After you finish the course, you can then spend the rest of your time diving with a buddy and logging new dives!
PADI Referrals are valid for one year. The dives you do for the Adventures in Diving Program and Specialty Courses do not have the one-year restriction, as long as they were correctly registered by your PADI Instructor(s).
