PADI Junior Open Water Diver

This is the most popular dive program in the world! And can be your chance to have a lifetime of intense adventures.

The course will require a lot of reading, knowledge and skills mastery. Before the classroom and pool time, the student must read the PADI Open Water course textbook. He or she must complete the knowledge reviews in each chapter. Once they start their classroom training, students will take a variety of quizzes, as well as a final exam that covers all the material in the textbook. Remember, this is the same book that you and I learned from.

The other big requirement to begin the course is that students must demonstrate that they can complete a 10-minute swim/float without any swim aids in water too deep to stand. Then they must complete a 200 meter/yard continuous surface-swim with no gear on or a 300 meter/yard surface swim using mask, fins and snorkel.

Students in the Open Water course must demonstrate much more than the ability to breathe underwater. They will demonstrate a variety of skills on land, including their pre-dive buddy checks, assembly and disassembly of their equipment, putting on and adjusting their equipment, and inflating and deflating their BCDs.
