With more languages added to Open Water Diver, Enriched Air Diver and Freediver™ courses, and the PADI eLearning® experience becoming even more fluid, PADI® strengthens its claim as the leader in diver training.
Scuba diving is a sport/hobby/obsession that bridges borders and cultures, bringing people around the world together to enjoy the underwater environment. But people around the world have different needs and, more importantly, speak different languages. PADI accounts for this when creating its eLearning products.
The PADI organization is making it easier for PADI Divers to access learning materials, with a digital suite of core courses that are easy to purchase, download and use. Now, these materials are offered in more languages than ever before too – further demonstrating that PADI truly is the way the world learns to dive.
Now, additional languages will be available for Open Water Diver, Enriched Air Diver and the popular Freediver courses (with more languages in more courses to come).
- PADI Open Water Diver – Open Water Diver now available in seven new languages: Czech, Croatian, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Russian and Turkish.
- PADI Enriched Air Diver – Along with the existing English and Japanese the popular course is now available in 14 additional languages: Arabic, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Norwegian, Russian, Spanish or Swedish. The following languages will be released soon; Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, Hebrew and Polish.
- PADI Freediver – Along with the existing English, the popular Freediver program is now available in 11 additional languages: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish & Thai , with Korean and Russian soon to follow.
The PADI Library app will reflect these changes. If divers have automatic updates turned on in their device settings, the app will update automatically. If not, they will need to make sure they update their app.
PADI Dive Centers and Resorts, be sure to update your eLearning preferences in your account to reflect the courses and languages you support.
Keep an eye out as more updates to the eLearning experience are coming soon.
