When COVID-19 triggered stay-at-home orders and limited classroom interaction, PADI® quickly responded to members’ immediate need for expanded distance learning offerings by readying dozens of new eLearning tools.
PADI eLearning® has become an essential part of training for PADI Members worldwide. As the pandemic magnified and escalated the need for increased access to digital learning, PADI staff sprang into action to add more than 50 products to PADI’s eLearning collection, including courseware for seven new digital specialties, five revamped core course eLearning programs, additional language offerings and à la carte course videos. An introduction to diving product was also added to help excite people everywhere about learning to dive and generate new business for PADI Members.
PADI eLearning offerings below – now available to PADI Members and their students – have already earned PADI Members more than $1.5 million US in direct revenue share in 2020, which immediately benefits their bottom line.
