PADI Junior Divemaster Course Sydney

A fantastic method to offer young scuba divers that may have an interest in becoming Divemasters to gain knowledge and experience.

Junior Divemaster Course 

Divers who are between the age of 15 and 18 years old, may enroll in the PADI Junior Divemaster course. Junior Divemaster is a subset of the PADI Divemaster course. Junior Divemaster candidates can complete a sizeable portion of the divemaster course including the mapping project, search and recovery scenario and dive theory. Additional training is required once the diver turns eighteen, but Junior Divemasters will be well-prepared to become full-fledged divemasters.

To become a PADI Junior Divemaster is a process that consists of the following elements - completing the PADI Divemaster eLearning programme, followed by practical skill development through pool and open water dives, plus underwater skills training and the Junior Divemaster final exam.

Then, as a PADI Junior Divemaster, you will use these traits to help our professionals as they lead, mentor, and motivate other divers and experience the joy of seeing them transformed by the wonder of the aquatic realm.

Our PADI Junior Divemaster course is designed specifically around young divers. We will work on areas of their scuba-diving that need strengthening and keep any strong areas at the top of their game until they can rise out of the ranks of a true amateur and step into the full ranks of a professional-level diver upon reaching age 18.
