How old do you have to be to get certified?

PADI requires you to be at least 10 years old to become a PADI certified Junior Open Water Scuba Diver.  Ten and 11 year olds  must dive with a certified parent, guardian or PADI Professional to a maximum depth of 40 feet.   Twelve to 14 year olds must dive with a certified adult.  At age 15, the Junior certification upgrades to a regular Open Water Diver certification.
