PADI Divemaster

Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, in this program you expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level.

PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers. PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both the PADI Assistant Instructor and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.

To take this course, you must be:

  • PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another organisation)
  • PADI Rescue Diver (or qualifying certification from another organisation)
  • An Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (or qualifying first aid and CPR training from another organization) course completion within the past 24 months.
  • Have logged at least 40 dives to begin the course and logged 60 dives for certification
  • Be fit for diving and submit a Medical Statement (PDF) signed by a physician within the last 12 months

During the PADI Divemaster 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 organise 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.
