Divemaster Program

Click to enlargeThis is the course where you will become a professional in the diving industry. You learn the highest level of recreational diving theory and will be able to take certified divers for a safe and fun dive. You will also learn how to assist Instructors with the teaching process during any PADI courses. As a newly certified PADI professional, this course opens the door to you to work in the most exotic places and earn some money!!!

The PADI Divemaster course consists of three modules: Knowledge Development, Water Skills and Stamina, and Practical Application. The Schedule will depend on your needs, the instructor's needs and course requirements.

Twelve topics make up the Knowledge Development module. You'll cover these 12 topics through independent study, projects, and discussions. Your independent study will include reading the PADI Divemaster Manual and completing the Knowledge Reviews, plus use of materials such as the PADI Divemaster Video or the Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving.

Your instructor will hold sessions to provide more information, to check your progress, hold discussions and give you an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about what you're learning. This ranges from classroom sessions, to meetings at the diving center and during dive excursions.

After you complete your studies, you'll take the PADI Divemaster Exams, which are written tests on the topics you studied. The Water Skills and Stamina module has two goals - to develop and evaluate your overall water skills and stamina, and to improve upon your existing scuba skills. You'll complete several timed swims and other exercises in confined water, and you'll refine your basic scuba skills so that you can role model for beginning divers learning those skills. You'll also refresh and refine your rescue skills.

Course Duration : 4 to 6 weeks
