Dive Master (DM)
The PADI DM course develops leadership abilities, enhances supervisory and demonstration skills and equips the candidate with the knowhow to effectively assist instructors with student divers. PADI DM is the first step on the Go-Pro ladder leading to PADI Assistant Instructor (AI) and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) qualifications.
During the PADI DM program, knowledge development is encouraged through classroom and independent study. Water skill demonstration techniques are honed and stamina exercises performed to ensure physical capability. There is a focus on problem solving and organizational skills with emphasis on good dive safety practice, upholding PADI standards and promoting a professional ethos.
