Content of course
The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy specialty course is divided in two parts.
1. PADI e-learning theory
You prepare yourself with the PADI e-learning software at home on your tablet, notebook or PC. We strongly recommend not to study on a small screen of a smartphone. The interactive e-learning will let you read the texts and watch the video and will check your understanding with some knowledge reviews.
The best experience is to study online, however, if you find yourself without internet such as on the beach or while traveling or if you have inconsistent, poor internet services, you may download content to study offline via the PADI Training app. Content can be downloaded for convenience with a total file size of approximately 185 MB.
The PADI Training app is available for Apple® iOS devices and Android™ devices. It’s best if devices are no more than three generations old.
PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy eLearning provides the basic knowledge for determining the exact weight you’ll need, so you’re not too light or too, trimming your weight system and scuba gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water, and hovering effortlessly in any position (vertical or horizontal) during the two required dives.
The e-learning software comes in these languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish
