The onset of COVID-19 meant people were required to stay at home, so PADI quickly responded to the immediate need for expanded distance learning offerings by readying dozens of new eLearning tools.
PADI eLearning has become an essential part of training for PADI Dive Centres, Resorts and Professionals worldwide, and as the pandemic magnified and escalated the need for increased access to digital learning, PADI staff sprang into action to add more than 50 products to PADI’s eLearning collection.
This included courseware for seven new digital specialties, five revamped core course eLearning programmes, additional language offerings and à la carte course videos. An introduction to diving product was also added to help excite people everywhere about learning to dive.
