PADI Junior Full Open Water Course
Unfortunately due to the safety restrictions of many UK Open Water Sites we are unable to offer the full Junior Open Water certification until a child reaches the age of 12. This is in line with HSE policy in the UK which we endorse wholeheartedly.


PADI Junior Open Water?
As a certified PADI Junior Open Water Diver, the most widely recognised and respected rating in the world, you have the freedom to dive with a qualified parent, guardian or a professional. 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 junior open water program.

What do I need to start?
Virtually anyone who is in good health, reasonably fit, and comfortable in the water can earn a PADI Junior Open Water Diver certification. In the UK you need to be over 12 years old.


What will I do?
Throughout the course, you'll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques. You earn this rating by completing five pool dives and knowledge development sessions and by making four open water (ocean or lake) dives with us.


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. Our courses last between 5 and 6 weeks. There are 5 pool sessions, two academic / theory sessions, followed by 4 open water dives either taken mid-week over 2 days, or on 2 consecutive Sundays.


Difficulty making the dates?
At Divenut we teach at a number of venues which means we can offer total flexibility to try and fit in with your requirements.
