Becoming a PADI DiveMaster consists of the following segments: knowledge development, practical application and the DiveMaster final exam. The online portion of the course, PADI DiveMaster Online, covers nine topics that prepare you for the practical sessions needed to complete the DiveMaster course.
The PADI DiveMaster course is the first professional level within the PADI System of diver education and allows you to work as a training assistant on PADI courses and programs, supervise certified divers during pleasure diving experiences, and conduct some PADI programs independently. Through PADI's eLearning® system and practical segments of the DiveMaster course, you become well prepared to work as a PADI DiveMaster
Prior to enrolling in PADI DiveMaster Online, you must be at least 18 years old, have a current medical attesting to your diving fitness signed by a physician within the previous 12 months, and be a certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue or hold qualifying certifications from another dive training organisation. You must also have completed a Emergency First Response (EFR) Primary and Secondary Care course (or other sanctioned first aid and CPR course) within the past 24 months and be able to prove that you have completed at least 40 dives and at least 60 dives before being able to complete the DiveMaster course, with experience of deep dives, night dives and underwater navigation.
After enrolling, PADI's eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.
