Content of course
The PADI Boat Diver specialty course is divided in two parts.
1. PADI e-learning theory
You prepare yourself with the PADI e-learning software at home on your tablet, notebook or PC. We strongly recommend not to study on a small screen of a smartphone. The interactive e-learning will let you read the texts and watch the video and will check your understanding with some knowledge reviews.
The best experience is to study online, however, if you find yourself without internet such as on the beach or while traveling or if you have inconsistent, poor internet services, you may download content to study offline via the PADI Training app. Content can be downloaded for convenience with a total file size of approximately 182 MB.
The PADI Training app is available for Apple® iOS devices and Android™ devices. It’s best if devices are no more than three generations old.
PADI Boat Diver eLearning provides the basic knowledge about types of boats, boating terminology, boat diving preparation and techniques, as well as key safety concepts and procedures to apply during the two required dives.
The e-learning software comes in these languages: English
