If you are considering a PADI eLearning Course, there are a few things you need to keep in mind before enrolling:

If you enroll, you MUST enroll through our store (Pacific Wilderness) in order to complete the class at either of our locations.  This allows us to track your progress, view your completion and streamline paperwork in processing your certification. 

1)  Enrolling in the PADI eLearning Course, in most cases, will NOT save you money, but it will save you time.  The cost of the eLearning option is IN ADDITION to the cost of the class.  The advantage for you is the classroom portion of the course can be completed online at your convenience.  The disadvantage – you’ll pay a little extra for that convenience.

2)  PADI eLearning Courses offered through Pacific Wilderness are listed below.  Please read the notes next to each Course for information regarding enrollment, costs and scheduling options.
