What to Expect
The first step in becoming a scuba professional is the Divemaster Certification. The Divemaster Program focuses on building your academic knowledge, fine tuning your scuba skills to demonstration quality, and learning how to teach certain programs such as Scuba Refresher for already certified divers who have been out of the water for a while.
How to become a Professional
Candidates need to have completed Advanced, Rescue, Emergency First Response, 40 dives, and have a medical signed by their physician before starting the program.
The program is $695 and includes your Divemaster Crewpack. It usually takes several months to complete the program.
The PADI Instructor Program is an intensive 6 day program that builds on your Divemaster Skills, diving knowledge, knowledge of PADI programs and standards, and presentation skills. That is followed up with a 2 day Instructor Exam administered by PADI.
