PADI Divemaster

divemasterDescription

The PADI Divemaster is the first level of PADI’s professional diver programme. As a Divemaster you can work for instructors and dive centres anywhere in the World escorting experienced divers on local dive trips, act as an assistant to Instructors on PADI programmes and become a member of the diving industry before becoming an Instructor or Commercial Diver.

Certification as a Divemaster requires both practical work and exams.  In order to qualify, you will require at least 60 logged dives, the Emergency First Response, Primary and Secondary Care qualification and pass all the performance requirements and theory exam. Once qualified you will become a PADI member and will need to have appropirate insurance to work professionally, in the UK you also need to pass an annual HSE Diver Medical.

The training and examination aspects of the Divemaster course can be completed as either taught course or an internship.

The taught course option is ideal for those with limited spare time. This is a highly intensive course covering dive theory and a series of practical scenarios and assesments, including skills and fitness tests. We will agree with you in advance the hours that the course will be run as this will often be required to fit in with dive school operations. This is usually seven full days.

The Internship option requires that you work for Viewpoint Diving Cornwall, unpaid at mutually convenient times until you complete all the performance requirements. This option is more suited to local regular divers, especially those on a narrower budget.  Acceptance on our Internship programme can not be guaranteed as it depends on availability and suitability and is determined on a candidate by candidate basis.

We strongly recommend that you purchase the course materials well in advance of any courses or exams to allow plenty of time to learn the necessary dive theory, since this can be the most changing part of the Divemaster training.

Age Range

Minimum age 18.

Prerequisites

PADI Rescue Diver

Emergency First Response, Primary and Secondary Care

40 logged dives

Good health and fitness level

We would expect the Divemaster In Training to have a full set of their own kit.

It’s that time of the year where some of you are not diving due to the cold and conditions - though the hardy few are continuing!
Either way, now is the time to get your kit checked and serviced, either because your not diving at present or because the water is colder and you are putting more strain on your kit.
We can inspect and service most manufacturers equipment - just let us know what you need done and we can give you an idea of cost.
Remember you would not drive your car if not MOTed or faulty so why dive without serviced or checked kit? Your life depends on it.
