The PADI Junior Open Water course is our most popular diver training programs and is a ticket to a lifetime of adventure. Here at Dive Rutland we are running a dedicated Junior Open Water course during 2022 for students aged 10 - 14
Why dedicated, well it is nice for our youngsters to work within their peer groups, not only learning diving skills but teamwork and potentially gaining lifelong friends.
What does the course involve?
It is exactly the same course that those over 15 take, the only difference is depending on the age of the qualifying diver there will be various diving restrictions put into place until they reach 15 years old
The student will read the PADI Open Water Diver manual and watch the Open Water DVD's completing the five knowledge reviews. Working with an instructor 'in class' to review the knowledge reviews and complete a quiz or e-learning. This will give the student the basic principles and essential knowledge needed for safe and enjoyable diving.

During the confined water (pool) training the student will apply the dive principles learned and practice dive procedures and skills using Oakham School Pool, Kilburn Road, Oakham
