Why take a course?

The IDF Junior Master Diver course is a counterpart of a black belt for young divers, the highest level of initiation before entering the adult dive path. Taking part in it allows to gain competence, build self-confidence and improve knowledge and practical skills related to diving. This training is an excellent way to close a certain stage in learning and developing your underwater passion.

What will you learn?

The IDF Junior Master Diver course has a highly developed theoretical module to build comprehensive knowledge in an advanced young diver. The lectures discuss equipment issues, diving technique, diving physics, and the water environment.

During the dives there are going to be new and more difficult skills such as removing and putting the equipment on the water surface or using a signal buoy.
