PADI Divemaster

PADI DivemasterOverview

Has scuba diving become a passion? If so, you should consider doing what you love for a living: become a PADI Divemaster.  The PADI Divemaster course is your first step towards making scuba diving a career. Working closely with a PADI Dive Instructor,  you will 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 scuba divers, including those that are just learning to scuba dive. The PADI Divemaster course is the prerequisite certification for both the PADI Assistant Instructor and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.

During the PADI Divemaster course, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study. You will 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 diving abilities. You will put this knowledge into action through a structured internship or series of practical training exercises. As you progress through your Divemaster course, you’ll expand your diving knowledge, hone your skills and increase your confidence. Then, as a PADI Divemaster, you’ll use these attributes to lead, mentor and motivate other scuba divers and experience the joy of seeing them transformed by the majesty of the aquatic realm.
