This course is part of the PADI Open Water Diver Course or Junior Open Water Diver course and includes approximately the first half of the Knowledge Reviews, the first half of the confined water dives and the first half of the open water dives. The course will give credit against the PADI Open Water Diver / Junior Open Water Diver course, either at Viewpoint Diving Cornwall or any other PADI centre. PADI SCUBA Divers can only dive with a PADI Professional until they have completed the PADI Open Water Diver / Junior Open Water Diver course.
The course takes two days during which dives are mixed with knowledge development to give a varied and exciting experience for all ages.
All equipment and course materials are provided.
Those under 15 years old will be accredited as PADI Junior SCUBA Divers and will automatically be upgraded to PADI SCUBA Diver when they reach 15 (certification cards are not automatically upgraded).
