The PADI Divemaster Course is a fun and exciting way to gain a higher level of personal skill, and is the first major step to become a diving professional. A certified divemaster can supervise and assist with both training and non-training dive related activities in a variety of positions.
As a Divemaster candidate you will perform an internship assignment assisting the instructor in a real-life certification process. The course consists of three modules: water skills assessment, knowledge development, and practical application. This is a demanding class, and your schedule will be determined by both class needs and your level of commitment to the program. The divemaster candidate must assist with at least two complete open water classes (four weekends), in addition to outside study and completion of personal watermanship skills.
