Looking for the first step in working with scuba as a career? Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program.
WHAT IS INVOLVED?
Working closely with a PADI Instructor, in this program you expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level. PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities. During the PADI Divemaster program, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study.
