Learn To Be A PADI Divemaster

Your first step towards become a PADI professional

Being a PADI Divemaster can open more doors and opportunities. Are you good with your hands? Many Dive Centres find PADI Divemasters who can repair and service regulators, cylinders, and work on compressors extremely useful. Perhaps photography is your talent? Remember, many divers are willing to pay a separate Divemaster to go out and photograph their dives. If you’ve got your Captain’s license or are multilingual you will no doubt be a highly sought after dive professional.

What is a PADI Divemaster? 

As a PADI Divemaster you will strengthen your dive skills and knowledge base, learning from peers at many dive locations around the world.

As a PADI Divemaster you have the opportunity to work in various locations around the world including dive resorts, live aboards, private yachts and cruise ships. The role of a PADI Divemaster is a varied one; meeting and greeting customers, socialising and entertaining, organising and supervising diving activities, assisting instructors, conducting some programmes independently, filling cylinders, maybe even helping in the dive shop. A big part of being a PADI Divemaster is leading others on underwater adventures. It is a lifestyle like no other. It is totally unrivalled and you get paid for doing what you love!
