Blue Marlin Dive´s philosophy on divemaster training is that the best way to learn is to experience how a dive center operates on a day-to-day basis, not just reading books and doing simulated exercises, but by actually helping the instructor train real students in their diving courses.

Course Components

Knowledge development covers the following topics: the roles and characteristics of a Divemaster, supervising general diving activities, assisting with student divers in training, dive theory introduction, physics of diving, physiology of diving, dive equipment, decompression theory and the RDP, Divemaster conducted programs, the business of diving and your diving career.

You must prepare an emergency assistance plan detailing the proper procedures to follow in the event of a diving related accident (relevant to the local environment). Prepare a map of a local dive site offering useful information for those unfamiliar with the area, i.e. topography, depths, entry/exit points, etc.

Water Skills & Stamina
In this module, you will perfect your confined water skills to demonstration level, improve your diving ability and practice a rescue scenario.

Equipment Exchange
Underwater, you will exchange all diving equipment with a buddy. This will improve self-confidence and equipment familiarity.

Divemaster Conducted Program
You will conduct a real student training session under the direct supervision of a PADI instructor.

Divemaster Internship
The purpose of this section is to enable the candidate to work with students on a real course and help prevent, overcome, and assist with common problems they may encounter while learning to dive. You will act as an instructional assistant and your performance will be evaluated.

Time Required
We recommend a minimum of three to four weeks to complete the training however many students decide to stay on longer. During that time, you have unlimited free fun diving and you can do up to 3 dives per day, which will result in well over 60 dives by the end of the course.
