Wat is inbegrepen?
The Divemaster program is a 5 week program. During this time, you will experience your first level of professional training. You will work closely with our instructors, assisting them on courses and guiding certified divers. You will practice your dive skills, and become a professional rolemodel diver. (Our dive center will make you shine in the role of a divemaster). You will strenuously practice rescue skills, for confidence and for easily solving common problems.
But besides the practical in-water development, you have the knowledge development part as well.
For your knowledge development (the theory), you have two choices:
Option one: Before your arrival, you have already finished and gone through your PADI material and done your eLearning knowledge reviews. This means that you learn at your own pace and it will save you time during the 5 weeks, to spend in the water instead. This requires that you contact the dive center for your login to your PADI e-learning materials and treat the theory as a selfstudy program.
Option two: On arrival at the dive center, you will get your PADI materials and during the 5 weeks you will have actual classroom sessions, where we go through the knowledge reviews and near the end of your stay you will be given your final exams.
When you successfully have completed Dive Theory Online, you get credit for half of the Divemaster Final exam. Don’t worry your instructor will explain it all. Once you have signed up to the Divemaster program, our dive center will be ready and eager to answer any extra questions you might have. We recommend that you plan a Skype sessions, so you can get a good idea on how to prepare for your course, and make a plan for whatever extra you might need.
Itinerary and what you need:
The first day you arrive, you will be checked in at one of the rooms at our very cosy dive center. Here you will stay for the next 4 nights (included). During these 4 days, you will slowly start your course with orientation dives, and by going through the schedule of the coming 5 weeks. You will also be assisted by the dive center to find your accommodation for the next 5 weeks. The itinerary of the course and your stay will be build and based on the standard requirements from PADI. Our dive center is just as professional as it is friendly. You will not miss out on anything from the course, but the dive center will also take your individual experience into account. If you need extra work on the theory or your skills in the water, they will make sure that extra focus is given. You will be working as part of the team, following the daily life at a dive center, while slowly developing your own professional knowledge and skills. The Divemaster program is recognised as a leadership course, and should proudly be added to your future CV!
PADI Medical Statement.
It is also important that you have filled out the PADI medical statement, and have it SIGNED by your doctor or a dive physician before you start on your course. The medical statement must be signed by a doctor within 12 months before you start your course. You will receive the medical statement from your agent.
Amount of dives.
To enroll in the 5 week Divemaster course, you will have to be certified a PADI Rescue Diver (or equivalent), and have at least 40 dives logged. You need to bring your logbook as proof of your logged dives. To be certified as a Divemaster, you need 60 logged dives in your logbook. You will easily log 20 dives during your course.
- If you are missing dives in your logbook before you can start, book a 1 week fundiving supplemental package, which gives you 18 dives for your logbook.
- If you are missing the Rescue Course or EFR course, this too can be booked as a supplement to your Divemaster program.
It is recommended that you have your own personal gear. However, you can rent a full set of equipment for 45 Euro per week. If you want to buy your equipment locally, the dive center have deals with the local dive gear shops, and you can get a full set of equipment for 1000 Euro.
