PADI Divemaster Course - €675.00 - (Excludes the DM Crewpack)

The PADI Divemaster Course was revised in July 2011. Whilst the course is basically the same, emphasis has changed on some of the subjects.

 

During the course you will undertake the following assignments:

 

Complete knowledge development segments 1 to 9 outlined in the Divemaster Manual or through the Divemaster Online program, and pass the Divemaster Final Exam.

 

Create an Emergency Assistance Plan & Dive Site Plan for a designated dive site. Complete waterskills exercises; complete a diver rescue assessment; complete the dive skills workshop and assessment; complete practical application skills; complete divemaster conducted programs workshops; complete practical assessments.

 

At time of certification, the candidate has to have:

 

  • Logged at least 60 scuba dives including experience in night diving, deep diving and underwater navigation.

  • Completed EFR Primary and Secondary Care training within 24 months.

  • Read and agreed to the PADI Membership and License Agreement.

  • Diver Prerequisites Certified as a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue Diver and a minimum of 40 logged dives including night dive experience at entry to the program.

  • You will also need to complete a Deep Diver scenario and Search & Recovery scenario. If you already have completed the full specialty for either of the scenarios then they will count towards this requirement.

 

It is usual for potential Divemaster Candidates to have their own equipment at that stage of their career but we are always happy to come to an arrangement with candidates over equipment matters.

 

Course Materials:

 

There is a choice of 'Crew Packs' for the DM course and therefore please feel free to discuss your options with us.  A 'Decal' comes with the Crew Pack as this will be required at the time of registration for certification. The PADI Instructor Manual can be electronically downloaded or purchased in paper format directly from PADI. The full CrewPack is suggested as this contains most of the information for continuing education as a PADI Pro'. For help or assistance please contact us. The PADI DM Crewpack can be sent to your home address, at a small additional postage  cost, so that you start the theory part of your course before you commence your DM training with us in Gozo. We are offering the course as a stand alone minimum of a 2/3 week course or we offer the opportunity to complete the new course on an "Internship" basis where a diiferent cost basis will apply. This will normally require minimum of a 2 month stay. In the meantime please send us an email to utina@gozomail.com for information.
