Junior Open Water course in Hurghada
Our Junior Open Water course is world recognized. It gives children aged 10 – 14 the chance to receive a PADI certificate. Therefore, our specialized instructors aim to make the course fun and active. They also ensure it is safe and educational. Of course, safety is our priority. That’s why our instructors undergo training for young learners. To conclude, the Junior Open Water teachers the same skills as the Adult Open Water. However we use a child friendly manner when teaching.
Junior Open Water Schedule
Our young learners complete 5 sessions in shallow water (max depth 3m.) All the theory sessions on our boat. They also receive the manual and the instructor teaches this step by step. Our juniors also complete quizzes to make sure they understand how to dive safely. Finally they will complete 4 Open Water dives (12m) and take their final exam. Moreover, juniors work at their own pace and learn in a fun and proactive way.
Our students will also have to show swimming skills by swimming 200m in their own time. Firstly, when you arrive to take the course, parents fill out a medical form. Furthermore, if your child has any medical issues, please bring a letter from their doctor. Additionally, we provide all food and drink on the boat. So you have to bring a swimsuit, towel.
Junior Open water qualifies you to:
Dive up to 12m with a PADI professional or parent/guardian. (10 – 11 yrs)
Dive 18m with a PADI Certified Diver. (12 -14 yrs)
The best part is that once the child reaches 15yrs they can upgrade their PADI certificate to the Adult Open Water without taking further courses.
