Ages 18 and up: During the Divemaster program, you will learn the basics of how to teach the PADI system. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to guide and supervise divers and become Instructor’s underwater assistant. You become a PADI professional.
The Divemaster course is divided into 3 parts. The first part is dedicated to advanced theory training on different topics such as the physiology and physics applied to diving, equipment, decompression, risk management, the PADI system, supervision of certified divers and assisting students in training.
During the second part, you will learn how to develop your rescue, endurance and diving techniques as a professional with an ability to demonstrate them.
Finally, the third part is dedicated to the professional practice, either as an internship, or as a set of practical training exercises, along with problem solving and dive management exercises. The aim is to provide a student Divemaster with real situations that he or she might experience.
Prerequisites: Rescue Diver (or equivalent certificate) and a minimum of 40 dives (including one deep water dive and one underwater navigation dive). In addition, in order to become a certified Divemaster, a student must have logged at least 60 dives (including one deep dive, one underwater navigation dive and one night dive) and completed a CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) course within the last 24 months. We recommend taking the PADI EFR (Emergency First Response) course to meet this requirement.
Duration: 12 modules of theory courses (4 hours each), and several pool and open water dives.

The PADI IDC (Instructor Development Course) consists of two parts: the AI (Assistant Instructor) course and the OWSI (Open Water Scuba Instructor) course. At the end of the IDC, if you pass the IE (Instructor Examination), you will become a certified PADI Instructor and will be able to teach other divers.
During the IDC, the Course Director presents you with the complete system of PADI diving educational training. The IDC focuses primarily on developing your skills as a professional diving educator. During the course, you will attend 14 theoretical presentations that summarize the PADI educational system. In the meantime, you will lead following presentations, as a PADI Instructor would:
- Two confined water teaching presentations;
- Two knowledge development presentations;
- One open water teaching presentation integrating two skills.
Once certified as a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, you will have the right to teach all PADI courses, from Discover Scuba Diving to Divemaster.
Prerequisite qualification: in order to follow the Instructor Development Course, you must have the Divemaster qualification (or an equivalent certificate from another diving organization) and must have logged at least 60 dives (including one deep dive, one night dive and one underwater navigation dive). You must also have proof of CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and First Aid training within the last 24 months. The PADI EFR (Emergency First Response) course meets this requirement.
To take the Instructor Examination, you must have logged at least 100 dives and must be certified as an EFRI (Emergency First Response Instructor).
Duration: 6 days of theoretical training, along with several pool and open water dives.
