PADI E-Learning Open Water Referral

PADI e-learning Referral Open Water Diver Course

This course is ideal for vacationers who want the flexibility of when and where they want to study and who also don’t want to spend all their vacation in our classroom during their stay in Roatan.  E-learning referral class works as follows: You begin your open water diver class training at home, completing the reading and video segments of your knowledge development whenever you have time. You sit the quizzes and the final exam online and then you come to Roatan and only have to worry about diving!

By the time you get here in Roatan, you only need to complete your confined water diver training and four open water dives, so it’s into the ocean we go…immediately! A e-learning referral class is completed in 2 to 2½ days, leaving the rest of your vacation free to dive some more or do other things!

You need to show up at the dive centre in the morning and you will spend most of the day in the ocean with one of our dive instructor. On day one we start by teaching you the skills you need to dive in shallow “pool like” conditions. Once this is completed, we head off to dive one of our fantastic local reefs. On day two you complete any outstanding confined water training and then complete your next dive. On the final morning you will complete the final two open water dives before being certified as an Open Water diver. You must bring the e-learning referral forms from your online training and your medical release if required.


  • Bring your e-learning referral forms from your online training
  • Signed Medical Statement (if required)

Be prepare to have a great time in Roatan!!
