How Much Will It Cost?

How Long Will It Take?
The Divemaster course is a big undertaking. You will undergo an internship with one of the InDepth Instructors that will last approximately 12 - 18 months!
The Divemaster Course will transform you as a diver. You will stop diving for yourself and learn to dive for others, you will learn to work closer with your instructor and develop a mentoring relationship that often cements a lifelong bond with those who understand, those who connect, those who develop a loyal bond and become invaluable members of the team.
It takes a special commitment to become a PADI Divemaster and not all succeed. Are you up to the challenge? Have you got what it takes?
Can you become a PADI Divemaster?
During your PADI Divemaster course you will undertake:
The Divemaster course takes your diving knowledge and puts it on steroids! Your knowledge will increase ten-fold as you delve deep into diving physics and physiology. You will know your Boyle's Law from your Archimedes Principle and your Henry's Law from your Dalton's Law. And Dalton's Triangle will become your new best friend!
2. POOL TRAINING
You will practice your skills over and over again, the objective being to reach the point where you make it look easy. Your skills will need to be 'demonstration quality' in order to become a Divemaster. So much so that you will find yourself watching videos of others and of yourself, you will even practice in front of a mirror! It takes time and practice. Lots and lots of practice. But you can achieve it.
You will spend a lot of time with your instructor, you will learn and absorb a huge amount of knowledge from them, just by being around them so much. You will see how they organise courses, conduct theory sessions and practical training. Equipment and transportation.
Over time you will 'get into their head' and know what they need and expect from a good Divemaster. You will second guess and become invaluable in the running of day to day courses.
Many students will look up to you and confide in you. You become a unique bridge between the students and their instructor. A unique and trusted bond.
