The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level within the PADI System of diver education and allows you to work as a training assistant on PADI courses and programs, supervise certified divers during pleasure diving experiences, and conduct some PADI programs independently.
To become a PADI Divemaster you will need to fulfill a range of knowledge development topics, practical applications and of course the PADI Divemaster final exams. Through our practical segments of the Divemaster course, you become well prepared to work as a PADI Divemaster and begin a career in recreational scuba diving.

You must also have completed an Emergency First Response (EFR) Primary and Secondary Care course (or an alternative approved first aid and CPR course) within the past 24 months and be able to prove that you have completed at least 40 dives. By the end of the program 60 logged dives are required for certification which must include deep, night and navigation dives
