Go Professional – Diver Master

Divemaster training is the first leadership level in the PADI progression. The importance of a PADI Divemaster cannot be overstated. The Divemaster rating denotes an individual who has; a high level of personal diving skills; has Instructor level knowledge of diving theory; has had significant training in how to assist an instructor during training activities; and is able to assume a role of responsibility for the welfare of other divers in their charge.

Divemaster training consists of three phases that include;

1. Watermanship & skills assessment

Watermanship and stamina
General diving skills
Problem solving assessment
Diver rescue skills assessment

2. Knowledge development

Candidates are required to attain a high level of knowledge in diving theory, and are required to pass the Divemaster exams.
Candidates must prepare an Emergency Assistance Plan for diving emergencies in the local area.

3. Internship

Candidates are required to work with our Instructors and serve as an Instructional Assistant for pool dives, open water dives & on Continuing Education Courses, as well as leading Certified Divers.
Candidates must prepare a map of the shoreline and underwater terrain of a local open water training site, selected by the Instructor.

Certification: All phases of training must be completed before certification can be approved by PADI. Upon certification as a PADI Divemaster, you become a member of PADI, and are eligible for the benefits that membership provides.
