Spotlight on the PADI Divemaster Course
At Splash, we don’t just tick the boxes on any of our courses and that is especially true of the Divemaster course where we go the extra mile to make sure you are fully prepared for your career as a PADI Divemaster. I do fear Carlos was enjoying himself a tad too much when assisting the Rescue Diver Course – the subject of our caption competition.
PADI Divemaster Course
Looking for the first step in working with scuba as a career? Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, in this program you 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 divers. PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both the PADI Assistant Instructor and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.
What You Learn
During the PADI 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 PADI 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 aquatic realm.
In addition, we offer “mates” rates on Specialty Courses to help improve your general diving skills as well as outstanding deals on your dive equipment.
