Part 1 – Your Knowledge Development
When you come on vacation to Costa Rica and want to complete your scuba diving course you have 3 options. So whether you want to complete everything online before you arrive, or work in the classroom when you are here, you can choose what will work for you.
Complete the academic work of selected PADI Dive courses online with PADI e-Learning. You can do this before you come on vacation and anywhere you have a computer connection; you set the pace and decide when you want to study. While you’re working through your online course or after you complete all of the segments, you can print your eLearning Record and bring it to Costa Rica to start your underwater adventures
Another option for the PADI Open water course academics is the PADI Open water Touch application which is available on all tablet based devices. It integrates the PADI Open Water Diver manual curriculum, learning objectives, video clips, quizzes and Knowledge Reviews into a rich, interactive learning environment. The course content so you can conveniently access the knowledge development portion of the course at any time from any location.
If you want to spend more time in the classroom, then on arrival in Manuel Antonio you can collect a book from the dive shop and then complete your videos and classroom work over 1 – 2 days depending on which course you are completing. For an open water course you will need 1 1/2 days or classroom time.
