Looking for the first step in working as a dive professional?
Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster programme. Working closely with an Instructor, in this programme you expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level. Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers. PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both the Assistant Instructor and Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.
What is involved?
During the Divemaster program, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems as well as help others improve their scuba. You 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 you skills and increase your confidence. Then, as a Divemaster, you’ll use these attributes to lead, mentor and motivate other divers and experience the joy of seeing them transformed by the majesty of the the acquatic realm.

A minimum of 18 years old
A Advanced Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organization)
