PADI Divemaster Course

Go Pro with a PADI Divemaster Internship

A PADI Divemaster is the first level of professional training. Divemaster candidates (DMCs) in training complete the course over a 2-8 week period. During the course, DMCs assist PADI Instructors on courses, fine-tune dive skills, and refine rescue skills. They also gain dive knowledge, management, and supervision abilities, which makes them role models to divers everywhere.

The PADI Divemaster course teaches divemaster candidates to be leaders and to take charge of dive activities. Through knowledge development sessions, water skills exercises and workshops, and hands-on practical assessments, they develop the skills to organize and direct a variety of scuba diving activities. More, this internship is the first step to becoming a PADI Dive Pro, making it the doorway to becoming an instructor and beyond.

Topics and practical workshops include:

  • The role and characteristics of the PADI Divemaster
  • Supervising dive activities and assisting with student divers
  • Diver safety and risk management
  • Divemaster conducted programs and specialized skills
  • Business of diving and your career
  • Awareness of the dive environment
  • Dive setup and management
  • Mapping an open water site
  • Conducting dive briefings
  • Organizing a search and recovery project and a deep dive
  • Conducting a scuba review and skin diver course
