To be certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you need to be at least 15 years old, medically fit and be PADI Open Water Certified. Also you will have access to a tablet.
As you progress through the material, you’ll be presented with interactive presentations including videos, audio, graphics and text. Short quizzes gauge your progress, and review and correct anything you might miss. This allows you to progress efficiently and at your own pace. In order to complete the five required Knowledge Reviews, you must be connected to the internet and logged in. After completing each Knowledge Review, you’ll receive an email from PADI with the results, so please check your spam filter or junk mail folder in case you don’t see one.
Prior to certification as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you’ll visit your PADI Dive Center or Resort to complete your training. You’ll take a short Quick Review to confirm your understanding of safety-related material from the course, and you must successfully complete five open water training dives with your PADI Instructor. You learn and master each of the required skills and show your instructor that you can comfortably repeat those skills in open water. As a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver, you will be able to dive up to 30 meters (90 feet).
The cost of PADI Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning varies by region and is nonrefundable. The fee covers your knowledge development training and unlimited access to PADI Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning via the PADI Digital Library. Your PADI Dive Center or Resort will charge an additional fee for the in-water portion of your course.
PADI Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning will be available for one year from the time of program registration. Though you must finish the online portion of the course within that time frame, you will have perpetual access to an online version of the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Manual through the PADI Digital Library app. The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning should take approximately 12 to 15 hours to complete.
Once you finish PADI Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning, your dive center is notified that you have completed it and that you are ready for the practical portion of the course. At the end of the Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning program, you will need to print out your eRecord and bring a copy of it with you to your selected PADI Dive Center or Resort, or email it to them.
