eLearning is a great way to complete all of the theory, online, for your course, before arriving in Tioman Island. This option will save you time, and means that you will be diving straight away! eLearning can be completed for any certification course, however the most popular is for the Open Water Course, as this saves you a whole day of your holiday!

The eLearning option is more expensive than completing the full 4-day course with us, as you are paying for the theory directly . We are able to discount the price of the course slightly for you, however it will still be more expensive.
