The PADI Scuba Diver (eLearning) is essentially an Open Water Diver course with only 2 open water dives instead of 4. If you decide to take this course you will have to meet the same theoretical requirements and confined water skills also required for the OWD in such a way that once completed you’ll be able to dive at any time and anywhere under the direct supervision of a PADI professional (Divemaster or Instructor) to up to a depth of 12m.
Moreover, this certification credits towards the OWD, so you will only need to complete 2 training dives more which you could do in one day at any time and anywhere in the world to get the upgrade.
