The PADI Divemaster course will prepare you for a professional career in recreational scuba. You will learn how to plan professionally led dives, manage other divers in the water and serve as a certified assistant to PADI instructors during training activities. In addition, you will be asked to demonstrate your mastery of scuba skills, rescue techniques, and swimming proficiency.
The PADI Divemaster course also consists of an academic component where you will be expected to demonstrate a knowledge of training standards, dive physics, physiology, scuba equipment, decompression theory, and the use of both the DSAT dive tables and the eRDPML.
As PADI Divemasters are able to teach courses such as Discover Scuba Diving, Scuba Review, and Skin Diver, part of your training will also include workshops where you will practice conducting these courses.
Rounding out your training is open water practical application. Here you will practice setting up a dive site for training, map a dive site, prepare and deliver a diver briefing, and conduct a Divemaster led dive.
Students who complete the Divemaster course are able submit an application to PADI to become PADI members.
