Go Pro with a Simply Scuba’s Divemaster Internship programme in Singapore and Tioman

Are you thinking about becoming a PADI Divemaster? Would you like to eventually live the life of a PADI Instructor? Are you looking for a new challenge? Do you want to develop your diving skills further and feel a sense of great accomplishment? Maybe you just want feel more confident when you to take groups of friends and family diving. The PADI Divemaster program is one of the most rewarding PADI programs to take – what ever your reasons are. The PADI Divemaster certification is also your first level of professional certification and the initial step towards PADI Instructor training.

What Can a PADI Divemaster Do?

There are many highlights of becoming a PADI Divemaster. Here are the two most significant of things you’ll be able to do:

  1. You’ll be able to independently organise, supervise and conduct recreational diving activities from both the shore and from boats. From a career perspective this means you can work in diving – either for a dive shop by taking out fun divers, or you can work independently by organising group dive trips of your own. On a personal level you can organise trips with your buddies with confidence.
  2. PADI Divemasters can assist PADI Instructors in conducting PADI Courses. So you’ll be able to apply for jobs at dive schools and become a part of the dive crew!

Are there any other benefits?

Absolutely – Yes! If you organise group trips, many operators will give the group leader free diving and accommodation (if staying in a dive resort), providing you meet their minimum group number required.

Most dive operators offer a “Pro Discount” on diving and sometimes on shop purchases too. Ask if there is a Pro discount each time you make a booking.

Being a PADI Divemaster is one of the pre-requisites for training to be a PADI Assistant Instructor or a PADI Instructor.

As you progress through the program you’ll find that more than just your diving skills and diving knowledge improves. You’ll become more confident in your abilities, in handling pressurised situations and you’ll be able to deal with problem in a calm and rational manner.

As a PADI Divemaster other divers will look to you for guidance and assistance. You’ll be in a position to role model excellent diving skills and shape the next generation of scuba divers!
