Prerequisites for Divemaster course:
Prior to enrolling in Divemaster Online you must,
The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level within the PADI system of diver education and allows you to intern as a training assistant on PADI courses and programs, supervise certified divers during pleasure diving experiences, and conduct some PADI programs independently.
Here at DSDD the Divemaster theory is taught online through PADI’s eLearning system and is the first step in the course. The online theory portion of the course, “Divemaster Online”, covers nine topics that prepare you for the practical sessions needed to complete the course. PADI's eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress and review and correct anything you might happen to miss, which lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.
Once you complete the eLearning portion of the course, your dive centre is notified by email that you are ready for the practical phase of the program. You can print out your eRecord and bring a copy of it with you to your selected PADI Retailer.
The PADI Divemaster Online program will provide you with perpetual access to an eBook version of the PADI Divemaster manual, a required material. However, to complete the PADI Divemaster course, you also need a current PADI Instructor Manual, both the Table RDP and eRDPML, The Encyclopaedia of Recreational Diving, and a set of the PADI Divemaster slates.
Once you successfully complete Divemaster Online, you will need to complete several practical assessments, workshops and other assignments with your PADI Instructor. You will also need to complete the Final Exam as well as meet the professionalism criteria.
The schedule for practical components of the Divemaster course is quite flexible and is dependent on the other PADI courses (OW and ADV) running alongside. Practical will consist of:
2 x Passport Photographs
QLD Dive Medical
PADI RDP (electronic)
PADI DiveMaster slates
PADI DiveMaster Manual
PADI Instructor Manual
