Here’s What You Learn
Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers. PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both the PADI Assistant Instructor and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.

You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that focus your ability to organize and solve problems.
