PADI Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning

PADI’s newest digital product, PADI® Advanced Open Water Diver eLearning™ combines the best of the current eLearning system with enhancements that better engage student divers. Available initially in English (other languages to follow), the new online study program will replace Advanced Open Water Diver Online.

AOWeLearn_DriftExample

Here are the top-line features that make this independent study option a win for you and your entry-level divers who are ready to take the next step:

  • It’s designed for use with mobile devices (smartphone and tablets) or personal computers connected to the internet. (An offline options will be released later.)
  • All 13 Adventure Dives from the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Manual are included, along with the Introduction and Thinking Like a Diver sections.
  • The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Video is integrated within sections and dynamically streams, which helps avoid long loading times or video pauses.
  • The user-friendly design supported by clear images, animated concepts and interactive diagrams makes learning enjoyable as well as effective.
  • All audio is closed-captioned – a great feature for hearing impaired and deaf divers.
  • The open navigation allows eLearners to move around – jump forward, jump back, replay and review topics – to fit their learning style and needs.

Similar to current eLearning products, student divers answer knowledge check questions after each subtopic to solidify understanding, and complete the section Knowledge Reviews to get credit on their eRecords. You sell the product the same way and can monitor each student diver’s progress through the PADI eLearning® system’s virtual classroom.

Student divers are required to complete the Introduction and Thinking Like a Diver sections, and are highly encouraged to complete the Deep Diving and Underwater Navigation sections for Advanced Open Water Diver certification. However, those starting with the Adventure Diver certification may choose any three Adventure Dives. Divers can choose to complete all sections if they want or just the sections you’ve advised for the Adventure Dives you’ll complete together.

Watch for more information about translations and offline eLearning options in upcoming PADI publications.

MALDIVES DIVING HOLIDAYS

Life beneath the surface in the Maldives is an underwater Disneyland, perfect for dive enthusiasts. The Maldives is renowned as one of the very best diving locations in the world. There’s not only an abundance of reef life here but also spectacular coloured coral and crystal clear water.

WHY CHOOSE THE MALDIVES FOR YOUR DIVING HOLIDAY?

The Maldives ticks all of the boxes when it comes to diving holidays. This tropical location boasts visibility levels of up to 40 meters, making it a great destination for advanced divers. However diving in the Maldives is not just for the experienced. The shallow lagoons and channels make it the perfect location to try diving for the very first time. Plus what better destination in the world is there to gain your scuba-diving certifications?

The Maldives is also home to protected UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. The presence of currents in this island nation means that open water channels are perfect for drift diving and it’s also possible to swim with gentle ocean giants like manta rays and whale sharks. Don’t forget the Maldives has year round water temperatures of 26 – 29 degrees Celsius!

THE BEST TIME OF YEAR FOR DIVING IN THE MALDIVES

Fortunately, the diving season in the Maldives is open all year round with the calmest conditions from December through to June. As the Maldives is located in the tropics, it is susceptible to both wet and dry seasons. June to November is the south-west monsoon season, bringing with it with overcast and wet conditions, especially in June and July. During these months expect slightly less visibility and different currents, although there is still plenty of marine life on offer, as well as sunny spells. Generally reef life is more varied and visibility is better on the western side of any atoll from May to November and on the eastern side from December to April. Reef sharks, hammerheads and whale sharks are found in the Maldives year round, along with manta rays and sea turtles, you just need to know where to head at the time of year you plan to dive!

DIVING OPTIONS

There are a number of diving options when it comes to Maldives. For example at Secret Paradise, value for money diving holidays and tours will be offered that you will remember for a lifetime. Enjoy an all-inclusive guesthouse stay and be transferred by boat to incredible nearby dive sites, the same sites that you would dive from a resort but at half the cost! Our diving holidays are an affordable alternative to a resort stay and also allow you the flexibility of island hopping or if your budget is larger, atoll hopping to benefit from the best dive locations during your time of travel.

Liveaboards are a popular dive holiday option, allowing you to scour the waters for the ultimate dive spot each day. These days most Liveaboards operate a year round schedule offering 7 night, 10 night and 14 night cruises not only in the central atolls but to the deep south and deep north offering opportunities to discover less dived sites and pristine coral.

SECRET PARADISE DIVING HOLIDAYS

 Secret Paradise, offers six diverse one island based diving packages, all in different atolls allowing you access to what are some of the best dive sites in the world. Our packages include Dharavandhoo, perfect if you want to encounter 100s of manta rays in Baa Atoll, Hulhumale if you need to stay close to the capital, Maafushi, South Male Atoll, Dhigurah home of the whale shark in Ari Atoll, Rasdhoo, the ideal location to spot a hammerhead and Gan in Laamu atoll.

Our island hopping itineraries in Male Atoll and Ari Atoll allow you to discover a range of dive sites and marine life whilst at the same time experiencing Maldives local life, tradition and culture, with or without a private dive guide.

DIVE TEAMS

All partners of secret Paradise are PADI affiliated dive centers and are operated by both local and European dive professionals. A personal interest is taken in promoting scuba diving in the Maldives, through education and awareness about the underwater environment here. Their objective is to encourage underwater conservation and safe diving practices

Dives are generally conducted from the beach within an island’s inner reef for beginners or from a local dive boat, a dhoni, for certified divers. Dive sites are chosen daily based on both the weather and current conditions as well as diver ability.

The teams will take you to the best dive spots and willingly introduce you to the characteristics of the underwater world of the Maldives. All offer boat dives, NITROX, night dives and a full range of PADI courses and will always ensure you get the best out of your dive. If you are learning to dive, you can do anything from completing a try dive or just the open water dive section of your PADI Open Water certification to completing the full PADI Open Water certification. Whatever you choose to do you can be assured of fun and safe diving with us and our partners.

Marketing, ideas to help with your Dive business.

We all know there is a cost involved in advertising to new and none divers, but this is should be considered a fundamental on going running cost. We here at PADI we are reaching out to both new and established divers on your behalf on multiple platforms (online, in print, events and shows, TV etc. etc.) and of course we try and bring those inspired customers through your Centre’s door. It is great to hear so many people to asking to get their PADI, no matter whether that is a DSD to DM or beyond.

I have been hearing great things about the ongoing Get your PADI in the UK promotion we have been running on Facebook and the number of clicks to the micro site (https://dive.padi.com/EMEA_UK/english/) speak for themselves. The success of “Get your PADI” campaign has led to a further 57 being developed and we are reaching out in 6 languages in 14 Countries, with multiple regions within each.

The above was just one campaign and not cheap to do, what I am looking to do is share some ideas that you can implement. So I have done a few ideas to hopefully spark some ideas for you.

Landing Pages

These are important to understand what they are, you need to be able to do them quickly and easily. The general idea is that you will point people to these pages from any form of online marketing. You could have it as a Competition, e-mailing, Facebook ad, and newsletter. There needs to be a reason why someone will either sign up or give you their details and it needs to be easy for them to do it. Think about screen size on catchy text. There is no point paying for a campaign if that data is going to get lost of someone gives up the will to complete the process of filling it in.

Events

A couple of examples. PADI recently was a completely none diving Event for above water sports, we got our foot in the door at the national watersports festival. PADI then teamed up with a local dive centre to help run DSD’s and we then both spread the message of diving to everyone attending. As this was a National event I was pointing people to their nearest dive centre for when they return home. Another recent and month long event has seen PADI teaming up with the Aqua Lung to help promote learning to dive in a Drysuit to those Centres customers who had taken up the offer. As you are hopefully aware you can easily “bolt on” the Drysuit course to both the Openwater and Advanced Openwater Diver Courses. Those PADI Centre’s who took part ran a promotion for learning to dive or taking their Drysuit Course as a “Fusion” distinctive Speciality. It was great fun and meant I was at different sites over the various weekends. I am looking to do more of the same. 

But, what about taking part in a local event to yourself? Have you thought about summer fairs, corporate events, market or a creative car boot stall? It shouldn’t have to cost lots but it should look professional. Reaching out to none divers it is important to look like they will be safe in your hands. PADI has a budget to help with none dive show events and as a 5* Centre you can apply for a marketing support pack (packs are limited to a specified budget but you should get in touch with your Regional Manager regardless).

What about running a regular Project AWARE event and adopting a dive site?  https://www.projectaware.org/

Funding

You should look at ways and means to apply for funding. Funding can unlock the means to really do something special to help those that may not normally get to take part in our beautiful sport. I have been keen to follow what Herts Dive Club has been doing since they were awarded Lottery Funding

http://www.hertsdiveclub.co.uk/i-can-dive-a-lottery-funded-initiative/.

It really does pay to give back as there is a huge about of positive messaging that comes out of doing something that makes a difference.

Corporate

Have you reached out to your big local businesses? It is worth knowing that most companies will have a staff benefits scheme. If you are not on that list then why not. Let your regional manager know if you would like some help getting your foot in the door.

Youth Market

Don’t forget there is a huge promotion that PADI is doing with regards to helping your centre with the youth market. If you are not yet on the PADI approved youth training scheme please get in touch with the office.

If you would like more help with Marketing why not sign up for the PADI Business Academy?

Januworry

It’s that time of year again.. “Januworry” You have had a great December, the boats have been full, courses on the go everyday, equipment sales booming and you have been caught up in the holiday swing of things. However come the first week of January you realise that there are bills to be paid, suppliers wanting money, staff needing commissions and all of a sudden the joy of December is quickly forgotten.

guy hitting head

Januworry

Januworry.

Would it not be great to have enough money every month to service all your commitments and still have some left over to reinvest back into your business to fix and repair the boats, dive gear and wetsuits. Unfortunately many dive centre owners do not have a clear idea on where their profits streams are and where they are losing money, where they could be more profitable and even what their gross and nett profits are on courses, equipment and dives. The problem didn’t start in Januworry but this month is a symptom of far greater problems that started many months prior.

When last did you do an analysis of your business?

It is important that you know and understand your own business. Do you know where the money is coming from and where it’s going to? How much profit do you need to make on each and every service that you provide? The dive industry is an amazing lifestyle to be a part of but when you are working for free or making a loss, the glamour of this industry quickly becomes dulled.

What are you charging for your diving courses and when last did you increase the price?

Quite often the Dive centre blames the current economy, the dive industry or the Training agencies for the poor results they have achieved. You will seldom hear a Dive centre blame themselves for the situation they currently find themselves in. Dive Centres are a business that offer dive courses, training, equipment and dive charters. But they are fundamentally a business like all others. What is the inflation rate in your region and has your course price increased to at least take into account this inflation?

Determine profitability.

A dive course price or dive charter price based on your competitions price is the wrong way to go. How much does it cost your competitors to run their course? Analyse each and every component of your business and work out how much profit you are making. Be sure to take account of commitments like rentals, insurance, registration fees, marketing costs and servicing and maintenance responsibilities. These costs, if left unaccounted for, can quickly erode any profitability.

increase-profit

Add value to what you are doing.

Adding value to your services does not have to cost you more money. Simple gestures like helping  lift and carry customers dive gear, friendly and attentive staff and knowledgeable and informative divemasters and instructors all add value to the customers experience. Conduct staff training and set safety and service standards high. Make sure rental equipment is serviced, clean and neat. The list of possible value add ons to your business is endless yet invaluable to your clients.

Improve your business skills

Many dive centre owners are great instructors, fantastic at leading dives and finding the smallest of critters. But does this earn your business money? You should be working at your business not for your business. Improve your business skills by attending classes, reading books or through online courses. Attend PADI Business Academy presentations to help increase sales and profits. Invest in yourself and you will reap the rewards.

Analyse your business. Determine profitability, charge market related prices, add value to what you are doing and invest in your own business skills.

New Year News – A short heads up on 2017

Hi all,

With this being a monthly blog aimed at the North of the UK I wanted to share some useful information that will hopefully bring you all a few bits of success in 2017

Freediving

I have mentioned the PADI Freediver programme before and what benefits it will bring to your Centre http://wp.me/s4SSW1-9766. It brings me great joy to announce that we now have Steve Millard on board as a PADI Freediving Instructor trainer. Steve has a long history with Freediving so I was very happy when he spoke with me about choosing PADI to help grow the Sport within the UK. Steve is happy to be your go-to person to either bring you (or the team) up to speed as freediving instructors and beyond. Or if you see the business sense to add it to your centre but don’t feel you can do it justice then he could be your instructor for hire to start building your Squad.

If you have not tried it yourself the PADI Freediver manual is 3 courses in one (Freediver, advanced Freediver and master Freediver). I will be going on the road with Rich Somerset, Steve and some of the major brands to run the Business of freediving workshops. Please let me know if you are in the UK North and would like to find out more.

Here is the latest video on the PADI YouTube channel

Live Events 2017

I will be on tour with some of the big guns looking at workshops, training and forums across the North of the UK. Locations we are looking at are

  • Newcastle – Forum, freediving and equipment in.
  • Leeds – Business Academy
  • Capernwary – Dive day, drysuit and Forum.
  • Blue lagoon, Dive day, speciality Schermafbeelding 2017-01-13 om 14.44.50workshop and Forum.
  • 8 Acre – freediving.
  • Stoney, Forum – freediving and equipment.
  • The Delph- Forum, drysuit and equipment.
  •  Gildenburgh – Dive day, drysuit and Forum.
  • Orkney – Forum.
  • Edinburgh equipment, Dive day and Forum.
  • Glasgow, equipment, Dive day and Forum.

This is not a definitive list as there are a couple of big events in the pipeline but, as I write this blog these are what I have planned for the first 6 months. I will be looking to do a good number of private forums still this year also.

Events will be shared on Eventbrite, Facebook and direct emails.

PADI Business Academy PBA Lite 2017 Blog Header

 

There is a planned Business Academy in Leeds on 3rd of July. If you have never been on one then you are missing out. We cover a whole load of Business training in an environment that you can focus on the Job in Hand. Let me know if you would like some details but it is worth coming along from a Networking point alone as there will be like minded Peers who are driven to make a success of their business.

Pricing Work Shops.

One of the most commonly raised points on a meeting is over prices. Only you know your costs but what I can help with is to make sure you are getting a profit from really crunching the numbers and suggesting solutions. Do you know which items are given you the best returns? This workshop something that can be done remotely and is a real commitment in time for both yourself and me so this will be on the first come first severed basis. But if you would like to work on it yourself then I am more than happy to send you the files to work on. As with all things that are finance you have, to be honest with the report you are running and anything shared with me will be kept in confidence.

PADI Sales incentive 2017

Emily and Su-Li have been working hard with Emma and Myself to really look at a sustained campaign for 2017. Please call them in the office for the details but it would be worth your while to get up to speed on the offers and factor them into your pricing. PADI staffThere is only one goal that we have as your PADI team and that is to help you do as well as possible. We are all believers in growing the UK market and have invested heavily in marketing the UK to new divers.

London outdoor and adventure show 2017

I will not be at the show myself this year as I will be expecting to be a dad part 2 over that weekend. A shame not to see you all but… I hope you understand. The rest of the team will be there so please come and see them. But again the main focus of the PADI stand will be to reach out to new and old divers alike to drive them into PADI dive Centres to help bring them to the underwater world that we all hold so dear.

I am looking forward to seeing you over the coming 12 months but please email/call/facebook/Whatsapp/etc etc if you need any help.

One last video to leave you with as a hopeful touch of inspiration.

How to inform PADI about my DAN Europe insurance

Text by Laura Marroni Exec. Vice President Planning & Administration, DAN Europe Foundation, Continental Europe Office DANEUROPE.ORG

DAN Europe, does offer three plans which include such a coverage:

  • Pro Bronze
  • Pro Silver
  • Pro Gold

All of them cover third party liability and legal defence up to €4,000,000.

Whenever you take out any of these plans, you can take advantage of a useful service:

You can request a notification to be sent to PADI EMEA right after completing your purchase, informing them about the insurance you have just activated.

How to do so? Take a look at the following pages to find it out.

Suppose you are a new DAN user and you go for a Pro Silver.

First off, you start the online process via the DAN Europe website by clicking on “Join / Renew

dan-1

 

After setting up your own DAN account (or logged on to your existing one), you are supposed to choose a plan. Recall you want a Pro Silver, so this is the page you end up on:

dan-2

Now, pay attention to the box whose title is “Training agency”.

dan-3

 

If you wish a notification to be sent to PADI EMEA upon completing the purchase process, you need to:

1. Tick the box dan-1

2. Click “Edit Training Agencies” and look for PADI EMEA on the list of organizations.dan-2

3. Type your PADI number in the box on the right. If you haven’t been assigned a PADI number yet, you can select “pending”.dan-3

4. Click on “Save” and this will come out.dan-4

Please note that no notification has been sent yet.

As soon as you complete the process and your payment is confirmed, we will automatically send a message to PADI EMEA stating that you have just purchased a Pro Silver plan.

This will save you time as you will take out your insurance and inform PADI about it in one go.

The 2017 PADI Price List is Now Available

 

padi_price_list_2017small

The 2017 PADI price list in now available on the PADI Pros’ site. The revised price list takes effect 1st January 2017. Please take a moment to review, and should you have any questions, please contact your Regional Training Consultant.
