JR. Open Water is our entry level scuba certification course in which you will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills to safely scuba dive in open water. Young people can take the full PADI Open Water Diver scuba certification course and upon completion will become Junior Open Water Divers with certain age limitations for scuba diving:
A 12 to 14-year-old Junior Open Water Diver or Junior Scuba Diver is qualified to dive only when accompanied by another certified diver who is of legal age. Since Junior PADI Scuba Divers must dive under the direct supervision of a Divemaster, Assistant Instructor or Instructor, this meets this standard’s intent.
It’s recommended that a legal-aged family member accompany Junior students by taking the course with them. Junior Open Water Divers or Junior Scuba Divers may upgrade their certification level to PADI Open Water Diver or Scuba Diver when they reach the age of 15 with no additional requirements.
If more than one year has passed since the diver earned the Junior certification, when requesting an upgrade, it is recommended that the diver complete a Scuba Review program.
