Dive Master

The First Professional Level in Diving

A serious and comprehensive program in three main phases:

  • Watermanship and skills development
  • Knowledge Development and business orientation
  • Practical Application and assigned tasks

It may be conducted in 7 to 10 days depending on your schedule

The Divemaster rating is your first step to become a professional, either to work full time or part time. Upon completion of your Rescue Course you reached a skill point that makes the Divemaster training available and enjoyable. As a Divemaster you will be able to assist PADI Instructors during training and not only that. You are an essential part of every PADI Course because your participation in training adds safety. You will become a role model diver.

Let’s see why Fun Divers can give the BEST education to you:

  1. First of all we are a PADI dive resort affiliated with Lucky Divers,an Instructor Development Center and we have great experience in teaching leadership – level courses.
  2. During your practical application we do not ask you to do the minimum which PADI standards require. You are treated as Fun Divers staff. This means that you will be given several other jobs to do with view in mind: "When leaving our place you will have so much experience that may take several months or years to be obtained in any other center".

Among other jobs or tasks you will:

  1. Learn how to fill tanks and gain knowledge in compressor use
  2. Learn how to use the Instructor Manual. This greatly helps in understanding the PADI system and prepare you for your Instructor Course which is your next step
  3. You will be used as Instructional Assistant during Courses and Introduction Dives. Here you will be familiar with student problems and deal with their apprehensions and behavior. Working closely with our experienced and role model Instructors you will become like them
  4. At Fun Divers you will find and use all the training materials necessary for your course
  5. In between training dives and other tasks we give you the chance to dive with certified divers and learn the different diving spots, at no extra charge
  6. During your stay with us you may discuss the details of the Instructor Course. You will know all the details for a successful IDC
