Becoming a Professional Divemaster
As a PADI Divemaster, you become a pro member of PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors). PADI Pro members are divemasters, assistant instructors, open water instructors and all upwards to the course directors. Professional means your dream have come true, turning your scuba diving from a hobby to something you do for a living.
Hence, becoming a divemaster can be considered real vocational training but also a lot of fun! As a divemaster internship trainee you will learn what is important for you work in recreational scuba diving, such as guiding fun dives with certified divers, assisting instructors in scuba courses and learn how to take people in to diving that never have been scuba diving before or help certified divers who havent been in the water for a while to fresh up their skills.
During your divemaster internship you will learn a wide range of various skills in and outside the water you need to be well versed in. You will learn everything about dive set up and management, dive briefings, how to map a dive sites, search and recovery scenarios as well as emergency scenarios. You will lead divers in a controlled environment supervised by your instructor and you will assist on a number of PADI courses. Thus, you will need to learn how to demonstrate scuba diving skills (such as clearing a mask, recover your regulator, etc.) on a professional level. Professional means, you are doing it slowly but make it look easy and effortless to your students.
The idea is that you will learn to demonstrate skills to such a good standard during your divemaster course, that you will be ready to enroll in a PADI instructor development course (IDC), should you choose to do so.
Rescue Diver certification and absolute minimum of 40 logged dives is required to start with the divemaster course. How ever, if you are not certified as a Rescue Diver yet, you can do all required courses at an interesting rate with Arizona Dive Shop.
Required Specialties are Enriched Air NITROX Diver, Wreck Diver and Deep Diver for the diving in Subic Bay. Also these you can accomplish after you arrival prior or during your divemaster training at a discounted rate.
We accept friendly, motivated, outdoorsy and fun water-lovers with respect for nature.
The minimum age is 18 years. It is also important to be in moderate to good physical shape.
As you are transforming to become a dive professional it is highly recommended that you acquire your own full set of diving equipment. If you don’t have it yet you might want to buy it during your training, when you get more idea about the best Options. You will also be able to buy your own gear from Arizona Dive shop at a reduced price!
