PADI’s DSD Program Goes Digital


PADI has announced it is launching a digital component to its Discover Scuba Diving program.

The introduction will allow resorts instructors to provide DSD participants a modern online experience and multiple learning tools, including:

  • Direct enrolment with PADI members.
  • Participants can enter their own information and data, simplifying the process for dive operators.
  • Pre-completion of forms, including liability releases and Medical Statements.
  • Easy management of records for the instructor from a dedicated tool on the Pro’s site.
  • Ease of bulk processing for the PADI member.

Commenting on the new digital package PADI Worldwide’s Chief Brand and Membership Officer Kristin Valette Wirth said:

“The objective was simple – introduce people to diving in a globally consistent, streamlined, and educationally-valid manner, enhancing the customer experience and putting the emphasis on the in-water activity for student divers… By introducing a digital PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) program, which customers can complete in advance, the focus shifts to where it should be: allowing our members to share their passion for underwater adventure and our blue planet with potential divers. Afterall, learning to dive truly happens in the water.”

She added:

“Our new digital Discover Scuba Diving program is more convenient for PADI dive professionals and their customers. It also enables PADI Members to give participants a meaningful reminder of their life-changing accomplishment: a PADI DSD eCard following the actual diving experience.”
