PADI Divemaster Course
Looking for the first step in working with
scuba as a career? Your adventure into the
professional levels of recreational scuba diving
begins with the PADI Divemaster program. Working
closely with a PADI Instructor, in this program you
expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to
the professional level. PADI Divemaster training
develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you
to supervise dive activities and assist instructors
with student divers. PADI Divemaster is the
prerequisite certification for both the
PADI Assistant Instructor and
PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.
What You Learn
During the PADI Divemaster program, you learn
dive leadership skills through both classroom and
independent study. You complete water skills and
stamina exercises, as well as training exercises
that stretch your ability to organize and solve
problems and help others
improve their scuba. You put this knowledge into
action through a structured internship or series of
practical training exercises.
You Can Teach
After becoming certified as a PADI Divemaster you
will be authorized to:
Supervise both training and
non-training-related activities by planning,
organizing and directing dives
PADI Instructor during the training sessions
for any PADI Diver course
Conduct the PADI Skin Diver
course and PADI Discover Snorkeling program
This is a four-week, very
intensive, program for those who just can't wait.
Rather than working on live courses we use
preplanned exercises to create scenarios that will
help develop the skills you need when working with
student divers and supervising certified divers.
