The PADI Divemaster Course is your first choice when you are ready to take that giant leap into a career as a scuba professional.
A dive master is a guide, a leader, and a role model for others to follow.
Divemasters have expanded dive knowledge and exemplary dive skills with a strong passion to mix with other divers. Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities.
Working closely with your PADI instructor, the program also qualifies you to supervise some scuba activities, allows you to assist with student divers, and it is the pre-requisite certification to participate in higher level qualifications as dive professionals.
The course schedule varies depending on your previous experience and certifications. Typically we suggest that it could take between fourteen and 21 days of training to complete all the assignments.
The PADI Divemaster program combines classroom tuition and independent study to enhance your leadership skills. The water skills, stamina challenges, and training exercises, stretch your ability to organize and solve problems, while you are helping student divers to improve their scuba.
The course can be completed through a structured divemaster internship or through a series of practical training exercises.
Most of these study materials are included in the course price;
✔ Direct and personalised supervision from your private scuba trainer
✔ All classroom sessions of scuba knowledge reviews and exams
✔ All pool sessions, confined water modules, and open water training dives
✔ Pattaya hotel transfers, hot buffet food, soft drinks, and afternoon snacks on the boat
✔ The PADI Divemaster Certification Card, participant manuals, and underwater training slates

The 'mentor' relationship between a trainer and the divemaster in training (DMT) is likened to that of the professor and the apprentice.
A bond of genuine trust and confidence develops as the divemaster course progresses and serves as role model behavior for the dive students to emulate.
When you become a PADI Divemaster you are at the start of the professional level of leadership and management. You have sharp rescue skills, enhanced specialty qualifications, and at least 60 logged scuba dives.
Divemaster's have reached the first level of scuba professionals and have superior preparation for becoming an instructor's assistant.
Divemasters have been subjected to thorough diving tests and performance before they earn the coveted status. Although the course can actually be completed in just over a week of training, the divemaster internship is the preferred method for certification.
The dive intern could then spend many months shadowing his scuba instructor during the scuba lessons in the classroom, dive skills practice in the swimming pool, and escorting and assisting divers taking scuba courses.
Divemaster interns also prove to be extremely popular with dive schools as they fill an unenviable role of general the 'gofer' similar to a builders' labourer. However, this practical application is extremely important for the trainee as it could prove to be a strong foundation as you progress into the next level of scuba professionals, the OWSI.
