Best part of the PADI eLearning is, you can choose almost every language in the world. So if English is not your native language and you like to read the information in your own language, it is possible!
The best way to start your PADI IDC is to start reading the topics under the tab “IDC eLearning”. Before the PADI IDC starts you should have finished all the eLearning. The topics of the eLearning are:
If you like to brush your dive theory you will find in the main menu the tab “Diving Knowledge Workbook eLearning”. You can practice the 5 topics of the dive theory exam.
Another way to start your PADI IDC is to start with the PADI Dive Theory Online
As part of the Instructor Course you are required to take 5 dive theory exams. For a relaxing PADI IDC we recommend to study the dive theory before you arrive on the Gili Islands in Indonesia.
How can you do this? You can use the Diving Knowledge Workbook eLearning and Encylopedia of Recreational Diving, but the Dive Theory online is a great way to do it as well.
Each online section consists of multi-media instructional sections followed by study questions. End-of-section assessments verify eLearner mastery of each of the following:
