The policy of the CMAS is to open the door of the underwater world to our children so that they open out there in full safety. The discovery of this world must contribute to the safeguarding of our environment. Children's diving is not integrated into the adults' programme. Its development and contents stand alone. CMAS suggest that the age limits should be between 8 and 14 years. Children over 14 should join the federal programme for adults.
Location: The dive site should have good visibility, be sheltered, with adequate means of entry to and exit from the water. It must also have the flora and fauna for the planned activity.
The cost of the course is 19500 rubles. The price includes: theory in the classroom, theoretical exam, confined water dives and examination dives in open water at Lake Baikal, rent of personal equipment, certification.
