The PADI Divemaster programme is the first leadership level in the PADI System of diver education. As you may know, many PADI Divemasters go on to become PADI Instructors. The training and experience you gain through the PADI Divemaster program helps shape your abilities and attitude towards becoming a professional level diving educator.
We are here to ensure that you get significant training in how to assist an instructor during training activities and you are able to assume appropriate responsibilities that benefit the welfare of other divers.
As a PADI Divemaster, you’ll be qualified to organise, conduct and supervise recreational diving activities and assist PADI Instructors in conducting PADI Diver programs both land and boat based.
You can complete your training over 3 to 6 weeks depending on your availability. This course focuses on everything you need to learn about the professional aspects of diving. We will focus on daily goals in order to complete every part of the course within the agreed time limits.
The second way to complete the course is through an internship program which is more like a summer job than a course. You are responsible for purchasing your materials but as a thank you for putting in some decent elbow grease, we will discount the costs for you. You will also be responsible for the application fees as they are between you and PADI.
You will benefit from a 100% discount on the course fee to Dive Academy. In return for this you will work within the needs of the business for a three month period through the summer (normally mid June – mid Sept). ALL of your diving will be free and you will be entitled to sales commission and sales bonuses.
* Please note that you have to be accepted on to the internship program through an interview process. Speaking an extra language (especially Spanish), having lots of experience and being of an age so you can be insured to drive our vehicles are all of great value to the business.
There are in fact three options available for the divemaster materials pack as it would depend on your end goal and what materials you personally feel you need. We can offer a basic pack, intermediate and the ultimate pack. Please ask for advice on what we would recommend for your personal goals.
