PADI eLearning Pattaya Thailand 

Learn the knowledge on-line and complete the exam in your own time.

PADI elearning Pattaya Thailand. The most popular way that beginner divers around the world become certified divers is by completing the PADI Open Water Diver course.

On completion of the course you will be able to plan dives with another certified diver, independent of any dive professionals to a maximum depth of 18 meters/ 60 feet.

What makes us different to other dive centers in Pattaya

Real Divers are a British family run PADI 5 STAR IDC Dive Center which means we can teach beginner divers all the way to Instructor ratings. We are the only dive center in Pattaya that run their trips from 12 metre speedboats, which means no early starts and no late finishes. We start our courses at 9am and finish at 2pm-ish. (with about an hour on each of the 4 open water dives).

We are also an Authentic TAT registered company (Tourism Authority of Thailand) which means we pass all safety regulations to take tourists diving, we also have a 100% safety record.

Also every student on our Open water course gets a rental dive computer which enhances safety and is a mandatory piece of equipment for every open water student. You will learn more about dive computers and timing devices on the course and why each diver must have one. Without a dive computer or timing device a diver could find themselves in trouble very easily, safe drivers are happy divers.

How long do you have to complete the eLearning course?

The PADI eLearning will be available to you for one year from the time of course registration. You must finish the online portion of the course within that time frame. 

What is the minimum amount of time it will take to complete PADI eLearning?

PADI elearning Pattaya ThailandThe PADI Open Water Diver Course online will take approximately 12-15 hours to complete. Most students I’ve asked say they did 1 or 2 hours a day study and it was easy because they could do it at their own pace and when they felt ready to learn.

Which to me is much better than being on holiday in a tropical country with the sun out watching the people who completed PADI eLearning go to the beach, etc, while you are sitting in a classroom.
