The Dive Master course is very Challenging, it is quite hectic and stressful but it is still loads of fun because you learn so much!
In all the other courses you did in the past, the instructors aim was to try and push you through the course. In this course there are definite standards that need to be met on a theory and practical level, if you guys are not up to the correct standard by the end of the course we cannot pass you.
You need to keep in mind that at the end of this course you will be a certified as a SCUBA Diving Professional that is qualified as a training assistant and dive leader. Peoples lives will be in your hands which is a HUGE responsibility, we cannot in good conscience put you through if we believe you are not ready as you may endanger your life and the lives of others.
In all other courses your instructors used positive re-enforcement while training however in this course if a skill is not done right you will have to keep trying until you get it right, if you are not focused we are obliged to point it out and we will be hard on you guys during your practical sessions. Please keep in mind at the end of the day this will make you a much more competent dive leader.
We conduct our courses from the point of view that my DM’s are looking to become instructors and we will therefore try and create a very similar training environment to the one you will face in your “IDC – Instructor course” so you have some experience and know what to expect when you start the instructorship.
A PADI Dive Master course is internationally recognised as a professional scuba dive credential and is recognised above any other dive organisations qualifications.
