What Equipment Do You Need for the Junior Divemaster Course?
We will provide all necessary equipment for the completion of the Junior Divemaster course, up to the required 40 dives. We do recommend purchasing your own equipment when you are able, as personal equipment is much more comfortable than rental equipment, as if fits to you properly. Owning your own gear means it becomes more familiar and safer too.
What Can I Do as a Junior Divemaster?
Once you have qualified as a Junior Divemaster, you can assist a PADI professional with site set up and management, shore support, dive class set up and organisation, dive site briefing, and giving a variety of environmental and promotional presentations to groups in the community. As this is the step before becoming a fully qualified divemaster at 18 years old, many of the skills and requirements are the same as a full divemaster, but with some modifications. This course is built so that when upgrading to a full divemaster, many of the sections will become easy!
