Divemasters are the people who essentially make the dive industry work. The Divemaster course is where you will really prove yourself as a dive professional, escorting students, taking responsibility for their safety, helping with instruction, leading guided dives for certified divers and, just as importantly, helping with the ‘behind the scenes’ side of a dive operation that most people don’t even realise exists.

You’ll learn instructor level theory, work with real and simulated students, escort qualified divers on underwater tours, conduct Discover Scuba Diving sessions and Scuba Reviews, and give people hints, tips and pointers on how to improve their own diving. Once qualified you can help with scuba instruction, and lead qualified divers anywhere in the world.

Job opportunities are out there for good Divemasters – and the UK produces probably the finest around. You’ll also for the first time, become a professional member of PADI.
