This is a course specifically designed to allow young scuba divers to start to progress towards a professional qualification.
It will allow them to help out at the dive centre and assist an instructor who is teaching - the full list of things they will be be able to do is below.
Prerequisites. The course is open to 15 to 17 years olds, with a minimum of 20 logged dives, and who are PADI Junior Rescue Divers or equivalent.
The course is broken down into academic and practical sessions.
Academics: The aspiring PADI Junior Divemaster needs to complete the full Divemaster eLearning as self-study including all 9 knowledge reviews. There are then two Junior Divemaster exams to be passed.
The practical sessions include:
Preparing an Emergency Action Plan
Exercises 1-4 of the full divemaster course which are a swim, a snorkel, a tired diver tow and tread water, a rescue scenario and a 24 dive skills workshop
Skills 1-4 of the full divemaster course which are dive site set up and management, a mapping project, a briefing and a search and recovery scenario.
You will also need to meet the professionalism criteria as in the full DM course.
To become certified, in addition to successfully completing the above you need to hold a current EFR qualification, have a minimum of 40 logged dives including experience of night diving, deep diving, and navigation.
Duties of a Junior Divemaster
Once qualified as a Junior Divemaster you will be able to do dive site set up and management, surface support, assist an instructor in 2 person skills demos (eg alternate air source use), and conduct supervised dive site briefings. You will not be able to work in a supervisory position until you’ve turned 18 and completed the full DM course. You can, however do dive site briefings, environmental and promotional presentations.
Upgrading to full Divemaster
Once you turn 18, to upgrade to a full divemaster, you will need to do so within 36 months of your training. The EAP, search and recovery scenario and mapping projects all count, but you will need to redo all exercises (this time, timed) and skills, as well as assisting on live training.
