How to Buy and Use PADI eLearning Gift Passes

What is an eLearning Gift Pass good for?

  • For PADI Dive Centers, an eLearning Gift Pass allows you to seamlessly include eLearning as part of your regular course price and ensures that the customer affiliates with your store.

  • For independent instructors not affiliated with a store – this is the only way you can offer eLearning.

Do not buy gift passes from, start at the PADI Pro’s site.

Anyone can buy an eLearning Gift Pass; however, as a PADI Member, it’s important that you purchase through the PADI Pro’s site to ensure you get credit.
