The Divemaster Course involves a high level of learning and commitment to scuba diving. Indeed, this PADI Certification is the first level of professional training and therefore implies a great responsibility. A Divemaster needs to exercise their best judgement when solving problems as nothing is ever cut-and-dry. They also have to prove flexible in solving certain problems which require taking certain decisions. To accomplish this, they will need a wide range of skills and competences, showing common sense and a right attitude at all times. The course comprises different parts: on the one hand, the theoretical and self-learning component, for which each student will use their own learning material to review and revise. On the other hand, the practical component, during which they will work closely with the instructor. They will also be asked to teach classes with real students, in both theoretical components and practical sessions in the pool or the sea, as well as in various courses of beginner, advanced and specialty level. The completion of the course will depend on the student's availability, with a minimum of 10 days required. It is indeed recommended to take part in as many pratical classes as possible so as to gain experience and cumulate a number of dives.
