Junior certification convertion to adult qualification.

Junior divers must be approved by the clubs Diving Officer before undertaking scuba training. Parents will need to stay with junior divers while in confined and open water training. Members wishing to go on 'advanced' courses need to complete the application form and get it signed by the clubs diving officer - Bill Painter.

After PADI Open Water or the SAA Open water course members will benefit from having their own equipment, and have some more diving experience before continuing their learning journey....diving is about knowledge - experience - and then more knowledge...not qualification collecting!
