Lately, on a global scale, life has been almost completely turned upside down due to the COVID-19. But there is something good in every evil. So now you may have more time dedicated to your diving knowledge and get into some online diving courses.
While you may not be able to dive whenever you want, you can fall in love with diving again. You can virtually dive by playing the Infinite scuba® diving simulation game and learn something new every day by reading our site. Watch a good “sea” movie, dive into your imagination, renew your knowledge, or expand it.
Online diving courses
Expand knowledge from home? Yes, and it is possible! The two largest diving organizations offer online courses or at least part of the courses. It’s actually about the various materials you’ll get once you enroll in the course. If it is possible to complete it online, you will receive a certificate upon completion. But if it is a type of course that takes place in several phases, online is a preparation that you do yourself. The rest you will have the opportunity to do when the conditions will allow.
As for the DiveSSI application will give you access to all the necessary materials. The most popular is a set of courses on ecology that you will pay cheaper if you enroll all the segments at once. Rather than one by one. This set contains courses: “Manta Ray and Ray Ecology”, “Coral Identification”, “Shark Ecology”, “Fish Identification”, “Ecology sea turtles” and “Marine Ecology”. Other SSI courses that do not require direct contact with water are: “Nitrox”, “Science of Diving” and “Equipment Techniques”.
PADI online diving courses
PADI, on the other hand, runs its courses through PADI eLearning and this is the initial stage of the courses in which you will acquire the necessary knowledge. Later, when circumstances allow, you will be able to do the rest of the course in the water. Courses currently available in this program are “PADI Open Water Diver”, “PADI Advanced Open Diver”, “PADI Rescue Diver”, “Diving Guide”, “PADI Divemaster”, “PADI Enriched Air Diver” which is actually Nitrox, “PADI Digital Underwater Photographer”, “PADI ReActivate”, “Dive Theory” and “PADI Instructor Development”.
So dig into it, learn something new and stay positive!
