Scuba divers look up to dive-masters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others. As a dive-master, you not only get to dive a lot, but also experience the joy of seeing others have as much fun diving as you do.
The Divemaster course is your first level of professional training. Working closely with an instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills and refine your rescue skills so you anticipate and easily solve common problems. You’ll gain dive knowledge, management and supervision abilities so you become a role model to divers everywhere. As a Divemaster, you’ll lead others as you supervise scuba diving activities and assist with diver training.
Rescue Divers who are at least 18 years old may enroll in the Divemaster course. You also need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months and at least 40 logged dives to begin the course and 60 dives to earn certification.
