Do your Divemaster with Happy Divers

Looking for the first step in working with scuba as a career? Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, in this program you expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level. 

PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist Instructors with student divers. PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for becoming a PADI Instructor.

What do you need to start?
To take this course, you must be:

• Have at least 40 dives to begin the course and 60 for certification
• At least 18 years old
• Have a medical form by your physician within the last 12 months

What will you do during your Divemaster course?
During the PADI Divemaster program, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems as well as help others to improve their scuba skills.
You put this knowledge into action through a structured internship or series of practical training exercises.
