Looking for the first step in working with scuba as a career? Your adventure into the professional levels of recreational scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster program.

PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers.

PADI Divemaster is the prerequisite certification for both the PADI Assistant Instructor and PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certifications.
