The Divemaster program is the first step into the professional ranks of scuba diving. Working closely with our Instructors, you will expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level. Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers. Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both the PADI and NAUI Assistant Instructor and Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.
During the Divemaster program, you will learn about procedures and responsibilities through both classroom and independent study. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems, and practice helping others improve their dive skills. You put this knowledge into action through a structured internship and a series of practical training exercises.
