The work of a divemaster

Divemasters are most often found in commercial training courses around the world. Even if you have divemasters who work as freelancers in the non-profit sector, the divemaster is trained with the idea of doing paid work. However, the divemaster must not teach. Therefore, the divemaster should be considered a leadership level in diving. At this level, the Divemaster may organize dives and supervise divers to ensure an unforgettable time of diving exploration.

The Divemaster may also assist the Instructor, but cannot train or certify the level of an autonomous diver. Divemaster level can be a diploma or a passage to gain experience before finally moving on to the Instructor level. The training of major organizations such as PADI, SSI, NAUI and IANTD are all very similar in terms of training and prerogatives, as they all follow the same RSTC regulations.
Although the method can be controversial, many divers work in centers for free in exchange for divemaster training. This exchange of best practices allows young candidates to gain experience.

Divemaster, working by passion

As a Divemaster you will enjoy day after day the adventure you will share with your divers.

Divemaster training may be a goal in itself or a step towards instructor training. A great way to live your passion.
