A big congratulations to young Bryan for completing his PADI Junior Open Water Course with Downbelow instructor Mike.

Just like Josephine who completed the same course a few days ago, the PADI Junior Open Water Diver program consists of exactly the same training as the PADI Open Water, only that upon certification the child can dive with a certified adult to a maximum depth of 12 meters until the age of 15 years when the certification can be upgraded at no extra cost.

The Open Water and Junior Open Water can be completed at the same time, this allows families with kids to complete the course together.

We also like to give a special mention to Mike who has settled into his new role as a professional diving instructor really well. Mike was one of our successful PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) candidates from our May IDC who has now signed up for the Master Scuba Diver Trainer Internship Program.
