UTD’s Junior Open Water Diver course is an entry level class designed to teach NON-certified divers to be safe and comfortable while enjoying the wonders of our oceans, lakes and other waters. This class is structured to prepare divers for recreational diving under supervision by an instructor, using proper equipment and proper diving techniques. The class incorporates basic scuba diving theory, knowledge and equipment configuration with precise diving skills and emergency procedures. This class not only teaches you how to use the equipment, but it teaches you how to be a safe and environmentally aware diver.

The UTD Junior Open Water course is normally conducted over a 3-4 day period, and cumulatively involves a minimum of 24 hours of instruction including academics, pool/confined water, and open water dives to a maximum depth of 40’/12m using air as a breathing gas. 

UTD’s Junior Open Water class focuses on the fun of underwater exploration while teaching good diving skills, safety, and a tremendous respect for the marine environment.        Find more videos like this on Unified Team Diving

Who this class is designed for?

The Open Water class is presented in a friendly learning environment where new young divers will learn the basics of safe open water diving. The class is designed for the teenage diver who wants to learn proper recreational diving from the start.


Why Should I Take this Class?

The Open Water class focuses on the foundational building block and skills of UTD configuration and is limited to 40'/12m. Many beginning recreational divers now want to start their diving career with a solid foundation and want to ensure when they learn the next set of skills or equipment or theory that thing will not change. They want to stay consistant to the ideologies and ultimately safely explorer this new territory.
