At Blue Ocean Diving, all Divemaster training is much more than a course that you attend, learn and receive another certification card – it’s an extensive experience program to build real world skills and practical application to prepare you for life as a Dive Professional.
The Divemaster internship is GREAT FUN – introducing you to the lifestyle behind the scenes in the dive industry; and if you like blowing bubbles – you’ll have virtually unlimited opportunity to get underwater.
After registration and an initial theory session, ALL YOUR DIVING IS FREE !!! – whenever you dive in the Pool, Lakes, at Stoney Cove or NDAC as part of the Divemaster Internship, you pay nothing for air/cylinder/kit rental.
You’ll do over 30 pool dives & log about 40 open water dives on the program.
Because the range of experience required to complete the internship includes several dive trips to the Lakes, Stoney and Chepstow, the internship is a minimum 3 months duration – so you get excellent experience and value for money.
You need to be committed to diving – and want to be part of a busy Dive Team : becoming involved in all aspects of dive planning, logistics & control takes a lot of time and effort – teamwork builds some great friendships & a good social life with everybody working in the Dive Centre.
It is not an easy program to complete – there are significant challenges for everyone participating: the instruction builds on your individual strengths and works on any weaknesses to ensure excellence in all areas of work as a DM.
During the course you will participate in skill circuit development to perfect the skills learned in the pool as a student on the Open Water Course.
This will build towards Excellent Demonstrations & Control when assisting with students in training.
The DM training involves a series of lectures to give you the background info on the role of a PADI Divemaster as an instructors’ assistant, dive organizer, dive guide and equipment expert, as well as detailed theory of diving physiology, physics and decompression models.
Being a DM is quite a physical role – so there’s a series of watermanship stamina tests to complete all against the clock to achieve the best times possible:
800m snorkel, 400m swim, 100m Rescue tow & 15min tread-water
The Divemaster Internship is a great option for any keen mad bubbler who loves being underwater, wanting to be more involved in the dive club and who takes diving seriously…
Being a PADI Divemaster isn’t a qualification – it’s a lifestyle !
