PADI eLearning is the best way to get the most out of your PADI Course while on holiday in Thailand. It allows you to complete the knowledge development (classroom) portion of the course at your own pace. This means less time studying in paradise therefore more time for exploring! If you have a busy schedule or just prefer the convenience of online study, eLearning is a good choice.

An excellent way for you to fully understand the theory in the comfort of your own home, at your own pace.


First-off, find the link below for your chosen course. Next, REGISTER with BLUE VIEW DIVERS (Store Number-36215) on the website link. Then, you will be directed to pay for your PADI elearning course using your credit card. You can access your course using the PADI Library App and then complete the liability, medical and student documents.

When you have completed all relevant sections with knowledge reviews, quizzes and/or exams, you will be provided with an ‘eRecord’. This ‘eRecord’ will show your final scores and highlight any missed sections or anything you forgot to mark ‘complete’.

          PADI Online Digital Manuals; Eco-Friendly Learning!

          No longer do you have to carry around your diving text book, or have to worry that you will loose or damage it! PADI Course Manuals are available in 100% Digital Format so anyone who completes a PADI Course with Blue View Divers will receive an E-Manual! If you thinking about getting certified, then keep reading!

          As a PADI Green Star Dive Centre we follow PADI’s new ideas to promote Eco-Friendly learning, such as E-Manuals. PADI Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water Diver and Rescue Diver are all now available in 100% Digital Format in many languages.

          ‘Eco-Friendly. Paper Free. No Shipping.’

          PADI Open Water Course: You use our shop’s paper manual for use during your course. Your own copy will be a digital version which can be accessed anytime on the PADI Library App. 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. 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.

          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 a Certification Credit will be allocated in your name.

          The manual cannot be downloaded, printed or otherwise shared – a printed version can be purchased with us if you prefer.
