The PADI Divemaster course is a great place to begin. At Pleasure Divers Magnetic Island we offer you the opportunity to be part of our team to get as much experience within the dive industry as possible.
Our PADI Divemaster course will integrate you as part of our team for 3-8 weeks, depending on how many dives you need to log and how many days you can be here a week. By spending your days working alongside the dive team you will not only earn the dives you need but learn the true fundamentals of what makes the dive industry tick. You will be helping out with certified divers, Open Water students, continuing education, sales and general maintenance to get a broad foundation for future work. On completion of your course you will be able to lead dives,assist with dive courses and conduct various PADI programs independently . During your PADI Divemaster program, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study. You complete water skills and stamina exercises, as well as training exercises that stretch your ability to organize and solve problems. You put this knowledge into action through a series of practical training exercises and workshops. Knowledge development covers 12 topics ranging from dive theory, assisting student divers in training to physics.
