Junior Open Water Diver                                      


To enroll, individuals must be at least 10-years-old prior to the start date of the course.


Junior divers must meet all requirements for Open Water Diver certification other than age.


Certification depends on competency and student ability to understand dive concepts.


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 Scuba Divers must dive under the direct supervision of a PADI 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. 


Special Requirements for 10 and 11-year-olds


Prior to the start of a Junior Scuba Diver or Junior Open Water Diver course, you must have both a parent (legal  guardian) and the child (aged 10-11) watch the Youth Diving: Responsibility and Risks DVD and; read and sign the  Youth Diving: Responsibility and Risks Acknowledgment form.


•  During any confined open water or open water training dive that includes 10 and 11-year-olds, the maximum student diver-to-instructor ratio is 4:1. No more than two children aged 10-11 may be included in the group of four student divers.


•  Certification dives for 10 and 11-year-olds must not exceed 12 meters / 40 feet.


After certification, a 10 or 11-year-old Junior Scuba Diver must dive with a ALDive Professional. Dives must not  exceed 12 meters/40 feet.


After certification, a 10 or 11-year-old Junior Open Water Diver must dive with a parent, guardian or ALDive Professional. Dives must not exceed 12 meters/40 feet.
