Looking for the first step in working with scuba as a career? 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.
What will I do?
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 organize 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.

-Supervise both training and non-training-related activities by planning, organizing
and directing dives
