PADI Divemaster

The first step in professional training, the PADI Divemaster course involves higher learning that begins at the Rescue Diver Course and expands into the Divemaster program.  This course expands the problem solving skills learned in Rescue Diver training, and extends it from accident management and prevention scenarios to supervisory situations with student divers and certified divers.  Divemaster candidates are introduced to problem solving that may include more than safety-related issues, and include handling customer service, business and operational challenges faced by PADI Dive Centers.  The course fee of $499 includes all training classes, pool dives, and open water dives.  It does not include equipment or training materials, or PADI processing fees.
Divemaster training will focus on the following topics:
  • The Role and Characteristics of a PADI Divemaster
  • Supervising General Diving Activities
  • Assisting With Student Divers In Training
  • Dive Theory Introduction
  • Decompression Theory and the RDP
  • Divemaster Conducted Programs
  • Risk Management
  • The Business of Diving
  • Your Diving Career
