Course Overview

The PADI Divemaster course consists of three basic sections: Knowledge Development, Water Skills and Practical Application.

Knowledge Development consists of nine topics, which you’ll cover through independent study and further discussions with your instructors.  Independent study will include reading the Divemaster manual, watching the Divemaster video as well as reading the Encyclopaedia of Recreational Diving, Business of Diving book watching Speciality Diver Videos and using other reference material provided by your instructors.  Also some of your study can be accomplished online by completing the PADI Divemaster online program.  No matter what method you decide is right for you, don’t worry we will be here every step of the way.  Available to you online or in person to answer any questions you may have.  When you are ready you’ll take the PADI Divemaster Final Exam.  The new exam is 120 questions broken into two parts.  You’ll need a combined score of over 75% to pass, if you earn less you’ll have ample time to review and take a makeup exam after we have had time to review right alongside you.

Waterskills this section develops and evaluates your overall waterskills and improves your existing dive skills.  Waterskills include timed swims, rescue evaluations and refining your basic scuba skills so that you can role model for beginning divers learning those skills.




Practical Application consists of projects and workshops and applying what you’ve learned in real or simulated Divemaster situations.  Included in the section are activities such as emergency assistance plans, mapping a dive site, search and recovery tasks and more.  You’ll also develop your abilities as a Divemaster in training working with actual students and divers under instructor supervision.

Upon completing all the requirements for certification, you’ll have earned the PADI Divemaster certification and will have become a leader in the world’s largest most respected dive organizations.  You won’t just be a PADI graduate but a BAN’s graduate as well.
