The Padi Divemaster Course

The PADI Divemaster course expands the problem solving skills developed by the Rescue Diver program, and extends it from accident management and prevention scenarios to supervisory situations with student divers and certified divers. At the divemaster level, problem solving emphasises looking for many possible solutions under the circumstances and choosing the best of several. Divemaster problem solving may include more than safety-related issues, and include handling customer service, business and operational challenges.


The PADI Divemaster course is divided into Knowledge Development, Waterskills and Stamina, and Practical Application sections.


The course is structured to include independent study, making use of the DM manual, Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving, The Diving Knowledge Workbook, and the PADI Instructor Manual.

Course Goals


The PADI Divemaster course has five broad goals:

1.     To develop the knowledge, attitudes, judgment and skills for supervising certified divers in shore-based and boat-based diving activities.


2.     To develop the knowledge, attitudes, judgment and skills for assisting with training divers in PADI courses.


3.     To develop the knowledge, attitudes, judgment and skills for independently conducting specific PADI programs for certified divers and non-divers (e.g., Scuba Review, Discover Snorkelling, PADI Skin Diver course).


4.    To develop the candidate's dive theory knowledge, water skills, rescue skills and experience to the levels necessary to enter the PADI Instructor Development Course.  


5.    To promote each candidate’s growth to meet their individual goals and interests, and to meet the dive community’s needs and expectations in dive leaders (e.g., risk management, personal health and safety, the needs of the dive retailer).
