Who does not like learning with the convenience of studying in your own time or want their spare time to be more productive.  So why not use your free time to increase your knowledge through online scuba diver training before you come to Koh Tao?

There are many courses that can now be done online and include the exam, for example, Nitrox 32%.  All the Ecology courses are completely online and you do not need to be a diver, including Fish IdentificationSea Turtle Ecology and many more.  In addition, any academic sessions can be arranged with an instructor via webinars, skype or zoom etc.  So there is no reason for you not to start or continue your diving education and as a result, you will be better prepared and educated.
