Live the Dream! Go PRO!
The PADI Divemaster course is the first step in the professional realm of diving (Can you imagine getting paid to go diving?) It teaches students the knowledge and skills to safely lead certified divers, act as an assistant to PADI Instructors, and even independantly teach the PADI Discover Scuba program!
About the Course:
The course involves knowledge development in the areas of dive physics, physiology, equipment, dive skills and the environment, decompression theory and the Recreational Dive Planner. There are also a series of waterskill assessments, dive skill development sessions, and in-water internships.
The internships are the Divemaster candidate’s opportunity to work with our Instructors in a real setting where the prospective Divemaster comes to the pool and ocean with us to help new divers discover the thrill of diving!
The course typically takes 3-6 months depending on how much time you have available to commit to the course. It has a very flexible schedule, which allows you to learn at your own pace. The more courses you intern on, the more you get out of the program.
Students must have their Rescue Diver Certification, and a minimum of 40 logged dives to begin The Divemaster Course. Students must have 60 logged dives by the end of The Divemaster Course.
