PADI Divemaster Course Internship

DIVEMASTER COURSE FORMAT

SHORT COURSE VS. INTERNSHIP

The short intensive course: This can take just 11 days, during which you will cover all the requirements of the PADI Divemaster course.

The internship: If you have some time to spare, enroll for our PADI Divemaster internship. During this time you will get plenty of hands-on training, as well as the opportunity to get a glimpse of the day-to-day running of a dive centre.

Whichever option you choose, we are happy to help with finding affordable accommodation!

PADI Divemaster Theory

DIVEMASTER KNOWLEDGE DEVELOPMENT

THERE ARE 9 THEORY SECTIONS WE WILL COVER DURING YOUR COURSE

There is a video and knowledge review for each of the section, and an exam at the end of the course. Once you have completed your knowledge reviews, your instructor will go through them with you to give you examples of real life applications and answer any questions you may have. The PADI Divemaster course is also available on PADI eLearning. This will reduce classroom time, which may be particularly important if you are choosing the short, intensive course option, however, due to course material costs, we are unable to offer any discounts for PADI eLearning.

Fins, mask & snorkel
BCD
Regulator with an alternate air source

Pressure gauge (an SPG attached to your regulator or a transmitter linked to your dive computer)
Depth & time monitoring device - we recommend buying a dive computer, which will also help when planning & logging your dives
A compass
BCD knife or diver's tool
One audible & one visible signalling device - we recommend a whistle and a delayed surface marker buoy (DSMB) that can be deployed by filling it with air from your alternate air source or primary.
