PADI Divemaster is the first professional level PADI course and required before going on to Assistant Instructor or Open Water Scuba Instructor. The PADI Divemaster is a professional who assists instructors in teaching PADI classes, leads other divers, and teaches several pre-entry level diving courses.
The Divemaster Course is an unpaid internship. You will work closely with me as I instruct divers in training at varying levels in the pool or open water. A good candidate is someone I have worked with in the past, works hard, has good rescue skills, good water skills, is an exemplary professional and has a flexible schedule. It is up to my discretion whether to accept you as a Divemaster Candidate. Becoming a Divemaster depends on my teaching schedule, your availability and many other factors. It could take from 3 months to a year to complete all requirements.
Divemaster candidates meet course performance requirements and:
Divemaster Crewpak (PADI MSRP $379 .00)
Course Cost: $799.99 for a single, or if 2 or 3 people start at the same time cost is $749.99.
I highly recommend taking this this course with another highly motivated person.
I work with no more than 3 Divemaster Candidates at any given time.
Does not include:
*May be substantial for quality course, especially if we travel offshore or to the Caribbean.
You must have a your own good quality equipment new or serviced within the last year.
**Candidates most often have these manuals either paper or in your eLearning Toolbox.
This is a challenging professional level course where you learn to supervise and mentor other divers. Be sure your own dive knowledge, water skills, and scuba skills are solid before you start the course. Plan to improve these skills substantially throughout the experience.
There are no refunds once you begin the course. There is no guarantee you will be certified. You must meet all PADI certification requirements.
PADI Divemaster Crewpack included.
