Here at Master Divers, we run a unique Divemaster course structure, which we believe is the most comprehensive training available!
About the Divemaster Course:
Your first week of training is a scheduled Foundation Week, where you will spend time with your Mentor, one of our experienced Divemaster Instructors.
After your course orientation, your dive instructor will take you through your knowledge development, skills training and workshops. All of this knowledge will stand you in good stead for the practical part of your course.
With this essential foundation, you will move on to work with the rest of the team, practising your teaching skills, working on projects, assisting courses and shadowing the Divemaster team.
Your final Closing Week(s) will again be spent with a Divemaster Instructor, where you conduct your final assessments and your instructor will mentor you in your move to becoming a professional.
It is his/her role to ensure that by the end of the course you are ready to go out into the world as a competent, confident Divemaster.
During the Course:
You will learn from instructors with years of experience teaching diving in amazing locations all over the world. The instructors have dived in many different locations and conditions and have immense knowledge of the different challenges involved in guiding beginner and more advanced divers.
Working with these instructors will not only offer you a fantastic knowledge base to learn from but also you will be exposed to different styles of teaching too. Spending time with this level of instructor, will provide you with a head start when gearing up for your PADI Instructor Development Course.
