The PADI Divemaster course is one the most challenging and rewarding courses that you can take. It is the first rung on the PADI professional ladder and it is a tremendous achievement. It opens doors all around the world and gives you a traveling profession that is in ever increasing demand. But, it’s not easy, nor would you want it to be! You are going to be a PADI professional after all and you are going to be taking care of the most valuable asset on the planet – the world’s diving population!
What does it involve?
Divemaster internship route is one of two choices that you can make on the road to becoming a PADI Professional. They both lead to to same certification, but with one small (but very big) difference. Divemaster interns work with real students and certified divers. The non-internship route mostly simulates students and certified divers.
The difference is a big one.
You, the intern, will get the chance to see real problems as they happen. You will see the way an instructor deals with problems first hand. This is invaluable. Though not everyone’s preferred choice it was the route I took, so let me tell you why I loved it…
You will become an integral part of your chosen dive center. Also you will become multiple instructor’s shadows. More over you will prepare enough equipment to drive the actions into your muscle memory. You will lift more weight than a gym addicted fruitcake and you will learn more dive theory than the books alone can provide; You will understand the entire operation of a successful dive center using hands-on experience.
