PADI e-Learning


The PADI e-Learning Open Water Diver Course option is the initial Scuba Certification course for those with extremely active schedules. The PADI e-Learning course has been developed to allow you to begin an online independent study of your PADI Open Water Diver Course. Taking the e-Learning option allows you to complete the Knowledge Development portion of your PADI Open Water Diver Course at your own pace from the convenience of your own internet work station - at home, in the office, on the train, etc. After finishing your e-Learning independent study, you will physically learn to dive under the guidance of a Lancaster Scuba Center PADI Instructor. Contact Lancaster Scuba Center, at 717.39.SCUBA or by email at, at your convenience to schedule a time to complete your Confined Water and Open Water portions of your course. To find out more about the Confined Water and Open Water segments of the e-Learning course, or to learn about the traditional PADI Open Water Course, navigate to our Start Diving page.
