The following are commonly asked questions about PADI eLearning and pool training:

 
What is the minimum amount of time it will take to complete this eLearning program?
The PADI eLearning Open Water Diver Course online will take a minimum of approximately 12-15 hours to complete.

Do I need to complete any additional academic work?

To help ensure that required knowledge is understood and retained, you will be asked to complete a "Quick Review" quiz. Since eLearners have already been assessed via study questions, knowledge reviews, quizzes and exams, the Quick Review should be very straightforward. We will remediate any questions missed and document completion of the Quick Review on the Student Record File. When possible, it is recommended that you stop in to one of our two Scuba Center locations prior to the day of your first pool session. If this does not fit your schedule, plan on taking the Quick Review immediately after your first pool session.

What is the pool fee?

Fee for completing the pool portion (Confined Water) with Scuba Center is $125.00. Each student will also need to purchase a PADI logbook, mask, fins, and snorkel).

What equipment is provided?

We will provide state-of-the-art scuba diving equipment for your course pool work.
What equipment do I need for the class?
You will need to provide your own mask, fins, and snorkel, as these are individually fitted items. Please make sure that you have scuba rated fins. The fins you have for snorkeling may not have the power required when you add the additional drag of the scuba tank, buoyancy compensator, weight belt, wetsuit, etc. Also, your mask should be a high quality silicone rubber to insure the best seal to your face. A mask that leaks on the surface may be a nuisance, but one that leaks at 60 feet is more problematic. Our highly experienced staff of diving professionals can assist you in selecting the appropriate items at either of our two locations.

Allow time to get the best fit and service possible.  Do not wait until the day of your first class session (For weekend dates... Pool Sessions start at 9am on Saturdays, store locations do not open until 10am). You will also need a swimsuit and towel for your pool sessions.
