WHAT YOU LEARN
During the PADI Junior Divemaster program, you develop dive leadership skills & knowledge through independent study using PADI`s state of the art online learning. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems as well as help others improve their scuba. You put this knowledge into action through a structured internship or a series of practical training exercises.
As you progress through your Junior Divemaster course, you will expand your diving knowledge, hone your skills and increase your confidence. Then, as a PADI Junior Divemaster, you’ll use these attributes to help our professionals as they lead, mentor and motivate other divers and experience the joy of seeing them transformed by the majesty of the the aquatic realm.
Our PADI Junior Divemaster course is tailored to you as a diver. We will work on areas that need strengthening and improve any areas of your diving already strong until you can stand out as a true scuba professional ready step into the full professional ranks on reaching 18 years of age.
The Learning Materials
Our experiences and courses require a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.
If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN), or your own Doctor.
You will not be able to participate in any pool or open water sessions without confirming your fitness to dive.
If the above points are not adhered to no later than 14 days before the start of your course, it will greatly slow down the course for yourself and the other students.
For this reason, if the effort and commitment has not been made, you will be assigned another course and an additional cost of £75 may be charged. In the event you do not book another course date, no refund will be made.
