Do you have a deep and abiding passion for diving? Or, do you merely love it with all of your heart? If so, you should consider doing what you love for a living: become a PADI Divemaster.
In this program you expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level. Our training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers.
When you Join the Tribe™ by becoming a PADI Divemaster, you align yourself with the largest and most respected dive tribe in the world – that of PADI Professionals. These are PADI Divemasters and Instructors sharing a passion for diving and an active concern for the health of the world’s underwater habitats.
During the PADI 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 your 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 the aquatic realm.
– You use all the basic scuba equipment and some scuba accessories such as a dive slate, dive knife, compass and dive watch.
– It is highly recommended that you own all of your own scuba equipment, as familiarity with personal gear improves general scuba diving skills.
