No longer do you have to carry around your diving text book, or have to worry that you will loose or damage it!
Did you know that PADI Course Manuals are available in 100% Digital Format? If you have recently completed your PADI Course with Blue View Divers then you will have received your E-Manual already! If you thinking about getting certified, then keep reading.
PADI continue their march towards environmentally friendly learning by providing digital manuals to go with their courses (‘E-Books’), online course certification forms (PIC Online), and PADI E-Learning Courses. Blue View has been offering the E-Learning option of the Open Water Course for several years now, and since 2013, all of our student divers have been receiving this new Eco-Friendly, convenient version of the paper manual.
As a PADI Green Star Dive Centre, here at Blue View Divers we follow all of PADI’s innovative and new ideas to promote Eco-Friendly learning, such as the PADI E-Manual. But not only that, the E-Manual can be accessed in multiple languages!
PADI Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water Diver and Rescue Diver are all now available in 100% Digital Format with Blue View Divers.
‘Eco-Friendly. Paper Free. No Shipping.’
PADI Open Water Course: You will be given a paper copy of the manual for use during your course. Your own copy will be a digital version which can be accessed anytime on the PADI website. If you are pushed for time on the island and want to complete your full Open Water Course with us, we can send you your E-Manual in advance with your knowledge review questions, which you can print off and make a start on at home! All you need to do upon arrival is watch the relevant DVDS, review your answers with your PADI Instructor and complete some quizzes and final exam.
PADI Advance Open Water Course: You will also be given a paper copy of the manual during your course, and there are no DVDs, quizzes or exams, with the Advanced Course so only five Knowledge Reviews are to be completed!
PADI Rescue Diver: Again, paper manuals and the DVD will be available here during your course, however the theory is more thorough for the Rescue Diver so it may not be a bad idea to complete a few chapters prior to arrival to the island.

How does it work?
When you enrol in your PADI diving courses, your Dive Centre or Instructor will register you on the PADI Pro website. You will be sent a PADI E-MANUAL via email, and your Personal Identification Card (PIC) will be allocated in your name. Students can log onto the PADI website anytime to access their E-BOOK.
The manual cannot be downloaded, printed or otherwise shared – a printed version can be purchased.
