You will do your knowledge reviews online and required to present these on the morning of your course, the Final exam can be done on-line too, or later in the classroom. This option is at no extra charge.
Second option, If you arrive in Exmouth a few days prior to your start date you will have time to collect a real book, watch the DVD and do your homework. If not we can post the book to your home address in Australia. This usually costs about $12 - $18 and we can just add this to your outstanding balance if you need your book before you arrive in Exmouth.
The alternative to doing your homework with the PADI Open water manual real book or on-line book is to complete via e-learning which you can sign up through PADI and costs an additional amount on top of the course cost, but if you register our store number 8165 as the store where you will be completing the course with you will receive a partial credit towards your e-learning course.
