Divemaster PADI is the first professional step in scuba diving and a prestigious title. The Divemaster license allows you to guide certified divers, to assist instructors in diving courses and also do some training programmes and parts of the courses. Being a Divemaster PADI you get new opportunities for work and travel turning your hobby into your job. To do the Divemaster course in Tenerife is a perfect choice. With good weather and water conditions the whole year you can find plenty of amazing dive sites and meet many other divers the same passionate about the underwater world as yourself.
You can enroll for the course even if you have no experience and licenses yet. It's possible for the beginners to do all the courses up to Divemaster in a row. To become a professional of PADI it's required to be older than 18 and to be in good shape, healthy and willing to study. If you already have obtained some of the certificates in other federations it doesn't prevent you from continuing your studies in PADI. We do regular Divemaster courses in three languages: English, Polish and Russian. The divers are trained by our highly-qualified and widely experienced diving instructors.
We do the training of future professionals of PADI in an operating dive centre that receives daily beginners and certified divers. Due to that the trainees can watch Divemasters fulfilling their day-to-day duties and get experience of real work and operation in a dive center. It's important that we don't use our students as free working force. We have divemasters and instructors employed to do the job. Dealing with the students we always keep strictly to the standards and main principles of PADI. We have several pools of different depth that are perfect to do the training programmes of the course. We provide our students with lacking equipment for free and also assist in searching for the accommodation.
The Divemaster course of PADI lasts 6 days, 8 hours per day. One part of the training is held in the diving center where we teach the theory and do pool exercises. Other days we do the practical part of the course in the ocean. A Divemaster PADI has to know the theory of scuba diving and be a secure underwater guide. Upon finishing the course you have to have at least 60 registered dives.
During the Divemaster PADI course divers explore many fascinating dive spots of Tenerife. In addition to the teaching programme you can also do fun dives. You will practice Divemaster skills in real work conditions helping our employees. Together with the Divemaster title of PADI you will get DSD Leader PADI license as a gift from our dive center. This license allows you to do Discover Scuba Diving programme that is very popular in many touristic areas being the main activity of most dive centers. DSD is a programme for beginners that would like just to try scuba diving without completing a course. Divemasters that have the DSD Leader title will always have advantage over those who do not.
During the Divemaster internship you can also get specialties and do additional dives with a discount. Thus, the divers have opportunity to get more skills and improve themselves in scuba diving. It's possible for the newly trained Divemasters to stay in our dive center for permanent or seasonal work.
