If you join the tribe by becoming a PADI Divemaster, you join the largest and most respected diving tribe in the world – that of PADI professionals.

Recreational Diving Professional

Your adventure in the professional levels of recreational diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, in this program you’ll expand your knowledge of diving and polish your techniques up to the professional level. PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership skills, and qualifies you to supervise diving activities and assist instructors with diving students. The PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite for the PADI Assistant Instructor and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.

What will you learn?

During the PADI Divemaster program, you’ll learn diving leadership techniques through both classroom and independent study. You’ll perform water techniques and resistance exercises, you’ll also train with exercises that will increase your organizational capacity and problem solving as well as helping others improve their diving.

You’ll implement this knowledge through a period of structured integration or a series of practical training exercises.

As you progress in your Divemaster course, you’ll expand your knowledge of diving, perfect your diving techniques and increase your confidence. Then, as a PADI Divemaster, you’ll use these attributes to guide, advise and motivate other divers and to enjoy the joy of seeing them transformed by the majesty of the aquatic world.
