Divemaster training 2017

As we enter the last couple of months of the year, we are kicking off the next Divemaster course here at The Dive Academy.

Young Jake (yes another one!) from England already has some 250+ dives and quite a bit of varied experience and now he has decided to change his career from being in the Army to becoming a PADI Pro!

The Dive Academy has already produced some great Divemasters this year with Matt, Jake & Kevin, all of whom are also continuing their education with us to move on and become PADI Instructors. Hopefully, the latest Jake also decides to follow in their footsteps.

Jake has already completed some of the Divemaster presentations and knowledge reviews and has commenced his first watermanship skill; scoring a 5 and is starting to work through how to perfect his demonstration quality skills. So far things are looking good, just need to slow the breathing down Jake!!!

Divemaster training at The Dive Academy is very intensive and thorough, we don't just tick the boxes and all of our Divemaster candidates repeat tasks and scenarios multiple times to ensure they are really comfortable and competent. We assess them on the basis of would we be happy for our customers to be led by them. If the answer is yes, then they are ready to be signed off!

If you're thinking about a change of career, then why not look at becoming a Professional diver. It will completely change you as a diver and we'd be happy to help you achieve your ambition.
