It will change your life!

Sitting in your office thinking there must be something better out there to do? Love scuba diving? Want to share it with others on a whole new level? Take the PADI Divemaster course and do what you love to do as a career.

Scuba divers look up to divemasters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others. As a divemaster, 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 PADI Divemaster course is your first level of professional training. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills, like perfecting the effortless hover, 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. In locations all over the planet, Scuba Professionals are needed to assist beginner and more experienced divers to grow their own passion for being underwater.

As a PADI Divemaster, you’ll lead others as you supervise scuba diving activities and assist with diver training. Whether you want to work at a faraway dive destination or close to home at a local dive shop, the adventure of a lifetime awaits you. PADI Divemasters are respected dive professionals who are aligned with the largest and most respected dive organization in the world – PADI. With more than 5900 PADI Dive Centers and Resorts on the planet, the world is your office - and your playground!



You should be physically fit before enrolling in the Divemaster course because this training will test your stamina and strength more than other dive certification courses. You will even be required to submit a signed medical statement from your physician. You also need to be at least 18 years of age or older to enroll.

In order to become a Divemaster, you must first complete the Open Water Diver course, then the Advanced Open Water Diver course, and finally, the Rescue Diver certification course.
In addition, as with the Rescue Diver course, you need to become certified in CPR and First Aid as well.

  • PADI Rescue Divers who are at least 18 years old may enroll in the PADI Divemaster course.
  • Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care 
    (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months.
  • A medical statement signed by a physician within the last 12 months.
  • At least 40 logged dives to begin the course and 60 dives to earn certification.

What you will learn

Your first step in a new career

The PADI Divemaster course teaches you to be a leader and take charge of dive activities. Through knowledge development sessions, waterskills exercises and workshops, and hands-on practical assessment, you develop the skills to organize and direct a variety of scuba diving activities. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems as well as help others improve their scuba. You put this knowledge into action through a structured internship or series of practical training exercises. As you progress through your Divemaster course, you’ll expand your diving knowledge, hone you skills and increase your confidence. Then, as a PADI Divemaster, you’ll use these attributes to lead, mentor and motivate other divers and experience the joy of seeing them transformed by the majesty of the the acquatic realm.

The course duration depends entirely on the amount of time you can devote to it. Some divers can complete it in some weeks and some take up to some months. Either way, we will make sure you are completely confident and ready before we certify you!

Diving Career Flowchart


Divemaster is the first level of the PADI Professional ratings. This elite qualification allows you to supervise recreational diving activities, either boat or land based, and to work as an instructional assistant on any PADI courses. As a PADI Divemaster you will hold the minimum rating for employment in the Diving Industry. It is also the minimum pre requisite for enrolment in a PADI Instructor Course (IDC). The IDC is made up of two parts – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.

Successfully completing just the AI course results in a PADI Assistant Instructor qualification. When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating.

All PADI Instructors will benefit from taking Specialty Instructor training courses, especially those who are ready to step up to the Master Scuba Diver™ Trainer (MSDT) rating, which requires at least five PADI Specialty Instructor certifications.
