Join the Professional Ranks with the PADI Divemaster Class
The PADI Divemaster class is designed to train qualified individuals as supervisory personnel, and as such is the first level of diving as a professional. In this role, the divemaster may oversee general diving activities and serve as an instructional assistant. Divemasters may also lead dives for certified divers. As a Divemaster, you will also be a member of PADI, our certifying organization, allowing you to continue on with professional development if you so desire. But more than merely providing leadership training, the PADI Divemaster class will help you to hone your diving skills to textbook quality and dramatically expand your academic knowledge to a completely new level. In so doing, you’ll be an example for other divers, as well as enrich your own diving enjoyment.
The PADI Divemaster rating denotes superior achievement and proficiency in dive skills, experience and underwater activities. Isn’t that what you’re all about?
To put yourself on top and reach the PADI Divemaster level, you need to be at least 12 years of age and complete the PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or Advanced Plus, PADI Rescue Diver, and any five PADI Specialty Diver certifications. Or, if you’re a PADI Divemaster, or PADI Assistant Instructor, complete any five PADI Specialty Diver ratings.
