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.
Be a Leader
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. 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.
Option 1 – Divemaster Internship
Our internships are conducted over 2 months and you gain hands on experience working in a busy dive centre and learning from other PADI Instructors. Its hard work but if you are serious about becoming a PADI Pro then this is, in our opinion, the best way to do it.
You just pay for your learning materials (manuals, slates etc) and your membership fee which is paid to PADI and you work for your course fee. Yep, you become part of the team at Anchor Diving and work with us learning whilst you work. You will be expected to work 6 days a week for two months in the Dive Centre. So you will get a lot of diving and gain real life dive leading skills.
You will be expected to do the more mundane jobs we all have to do, like washing kit, keeping the centre clean, filling cylinders etc. If this sounds like a great way to spend a summer, it is! So why not get in touch now for more details and change your life forever.
Course Fee – FREE – You’ll learn the trade of a professional diver and get the course for free by working for us.
Option 2 – Divemaster Course
Course Fee – €720 – Duration – 15 Days (PADI course materials and application fees are not included)
What Will You Learn?
The PADI Divemaster course teaches you to be a leader and take charge of dive activities. Through knowledge development sessions, waterskills exercises and workshops plus hands-on practical assessment, you will develop the skills that you need to organise and direct a variety of scuba diving activities.
Your instructor may also offer the PADI Deep Diver and Search and Recovery Diver specialty diver courses along with your divemaster training to help you meet all requirements and to broaden your abilities.
How Can You Start Learning Now?
Sign up for Divemaster Online – PADI’s eLearning option – to start now. You can work through eight knowledge development sections using a web-based system that lets you learn at your own pace. You also have access to an online version of the Divemaster Manual for reference during and after the course.
Another option is to study by reading the Divemaster Manual and watching the Divemaster Video (a book and DVD package). Visit your local PADI Dive Center or Resort to enroll in the course and get your Divemaster Crew-Pak, which also includes other reference materials – like the PADI Instructor Manual and The Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving – that you’ll need during the course.
Consider taking the Dive Theory Online, another PADI eLearning® program, that takes you step-by-step through dive physics, physiology, skills, equipment and environment, plus a Recreational Dive Planner (RDP) review. By successfully completing Dive Theory Online, you can get credit for half of the Divemaster Final Exam. Your PADI Instructor can explain how this works when you meet to schedule knowledge review sessions along with your waterskills exercises, workshops and practical assessments.
