The PADI Divemaster course is not only about learning excellent dive skills and deepening your knowledge on dive theory. You will have daily training by being part of our day-to-day operations. The course requirements are extensive, and your instructors will go through these with you before you start.
• PADI Divemaster course: Knowledge Development
At the start of the course you independently study your Divemaster manual and complete the Knowledge Review exercises for each chapter of the book. The exercises will be checked and revised with your instructor who will also help you with any questions you may have. To complete the theory study you will take part in the Divemaster final exam and prepare an Emergency Assistance Plan for a dive site.
• PADI Divemaster course: Water Skills Development
In this section of the course you need to show mastery of different underwater and surface skills. There are several swim tests. You will need to perform a diver rescue, you will learn to demonstrate and later be evaluated on individual dive skills such as mask removal, hovering and many more.
• PADI Divemaster course: Practical Application
This part of the course consists of workshops, dive scenarios and assisting your instructor with their students. In the workshops you prepare for your future by getting familiar with the courses a certified Divemaster can independently conduct. The dive scenarios will have you practice responsibility and management of different diving situations both on land and in water. Finally you will get a look behind the scenes when you assist your instructor with real student diver. It will be your turn to help them get comfortable with their heavy dive equipment and give them tips for relaxing underwater just like when you started diving yourself.
