PADI Training Programme

Junior Open Water Diver


Why the PADI Junior Open Water Diver Course?

As a certified PADI Junior Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected rating in the world, you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. For Junior Junior, the child must be accompanied by a certified instructor and or legal guardian.

If you have already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified, check with your instructor to see how credit from these courses may apply to the open water program.

What will I do?

Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and the techniques of diving. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (coastal or in-land) dives.

How old do I need to be?

At least 10 years of age on the day that you start the course.

What are my restrictions as a Junior Open Water diver?

You can dive to a maximum depth of 12 metres/40 feet, and may only dive with a PADI Professional, a certified parent or certified guardian.

How long will it take?

PADI programs are performance based. You proceed as you demonstrate mastery of the course skills. This allows you to work at a pace that is comfortable for you.

Where can I do it?

Diver Locker offers these courses on a monthly basis and throughout winter and summer. The theory and pool sessions take place at Dive Locker, while pool sessions take place at Chartwell.
