Join the best of the best in recreational scuba diving and live the dive life as a PADI Master Scuba Diver. The Master Scuba Diver rating places you in an elite group of respected divers who have earned this rating through both significant experience and scuba training. Fewer than two percent of divers ever achieve this rating. When you flash your Master Scuba Diver card, people know that you’ve spent time underwater in a variety of environments and had your share of dive adventures.

Every diver, who is at least 12 years old, should aim for Master Scuba Diver.

The path starts with earning a PADI Open Water Diver certification, followed by PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue Diver (or qualifying certifications). You also need to earn five PADI Specialty Diver certifications and have logged a minimum of 50 dives.

The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level in the PADI system and develops your leadership abilities by training you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers. It is the first step in your scuba diving career. During the PADI Divemaster course you will learn about supervising certified divers, assisting with students, risk management, the physiology of diving, dive equipment, the physics of diving, decompression theory, the recreational dive planner, diving skills, the underwater environment and how to independently conduct certain PADI programs and courses.

The Divemaster is the first step on the PADI professional ladder and the more you put into the course the more you will get out of it. You will be assigned a Lead Instructor who will mentor you during the course. This personal touch is what makes all the difference. You will be working with many other instructors at the dive centre during your training but the Lead Instructor is there to be your guide to becoming the best Divemaster possible. This close working relationship often continues long after the course has been completed.

All of the academic and confined water sessions are conducted by senior instructors at our purpose built dive centre in London. Academic modules are carried out in state of the art classrooms with the confined water sessions conducted in our on-site heated pool. The open water work is generally carried out at local dive lake although trips to the coast and other inland sites can be arranged.

The most important part of the course comes after you finish. Once you have the DM licence how do you get the experience? At our dive centre we offer immediate freelance work and unlimited course shadowing to all of our trainees to get that vital experience needed to progress in the dive industry.
