Upgrade Junior Certification Card
What is a Junior Certification Card?
Divers under the age of 15 receive certification cards with the "Junior" designation, such as Junior Open Water Diver. Junior certifications include stated restrictions regarding depth limits and dive buddies based on age.
Upon turning 15, Junior certification card holders may upgrade to a standard certification card with the stated restrictions removed.
Option 1: Take a Course
A Junior certification card holder may take the next core level course to both upgrade the certification level and receive a standard certification card.
Junior Scuba Divers may take the Open Water Diver Course.
Junior Open Water Divers may take the Adventure Diver or Advanced Open Water Course.
Junior Advanced Open Water Divers may take the Rescue Diver Course.
Junior Rescue Divers may apply for Master Scuba Diver if all requirements have been met.
Option 2: Order a Replacement Certification Card
To upgrade your card from Junior to standard certification level, please complete the Diver Replacement Card Online Application for your current Junior certification level, and your card will print with the new/updated level with the age appropriate restrictions removed.
