PADI DIVEMASTER


To become a PADI certified Divemaster, an individual must be prepared to assume responsibility and take a leadership role. The responsibility is considerable and the course is designed for only the serious diver.  The rewards of being a Divemaster, however, in terms of personal satisfaction and achievement are unparalleled.

COURSE STRUCTURE:

MODULE #1 - WATERMANSHIP AND SKILLS ASSESSMENT

This module is designed to assess and provide remedial training in general watermanship and diving skills. Diver rescue abilities will be assessed and reviewed and proficiency in dealing with stress - inducing problems developed.  Swim and float tests will also be conducted and a high degree of physical stamina and diving skill is essential. During this phase of the training, you will also be taught the proper techniques used to demonstrate scuba skills for open water students.

MODULE #2 - DIVING KNOWLEDGE DEVELOPMENT

This module is designed to increase your knowledge of the theory and principles of diving. Using the PADI Divemaster manual you will be required to read and study the text at your own pace, meet informally with the Instructor to discuss your readings, and complete a series written exams covering the various topics discussed in the manual. Instructor lectures will be scheduled for the following exams: Physics, Physiology, and Recreational Dive Planner.

MODULE #3 - PRACTICAL APPLICATION

This module involves training and experience in the supervisory aspect of being a Divemaster.   This involves an internship during which the D/M candidate will serve as an Assistant to a PADI Instructor. The objectives are to gain familiarity with the diver-training process, develop an awareness of typical student problems, and learn how to supervise and control divers in general.  The candidate must take part in classroom and confined water sessions and open water training sessions.
