becoming a certified padi divemaster

The PADI Divemaster Course is the first level of the PADI Professional rating. As a PADI Divemaster, you will hold the minimum rating for professional employment in the diving industry. Your qualification will allow you to supervise recreational diving activities (either boat or land-based), work as an instructional assistant on all PADI courses and is just one step away from a PADI Instructor rating.

Our 17-day course is a combination of theoretical classroom sessions along with practical application sessions, covering a variety of pool and open water PADI courses. Your course includes two, three-day liveaboard trips on board Pro Dive Cairns, where you will complete up to 20 dives (a mix of compulsory and recreational). 

Please Note: some medical conditions may prevent you diving and you will be required to complete a waiver and medical statement prior to the trip. If you have recently/continue to suffer from an illness or condition that may affect your dive fitness,  or currently taking any prescription medication, you will need to consult a doctor for a 'fit to dive' medical certificate. 


Compulsory Prerequisites 

  • PADI rescue diver certifications or equivalent
  • Dive medical
  • Minimum age 18 years
  • Minimum 40 logged dives (additional dives can be organised)
  • Current senior first aid certification completed in the last 24 months

3 Day/2Night live aboard was excellent

Great staff, great food and great dive sites. Did 9 dives in 3 days so they were super busy and we thoroughly enjoyed all of it. A company that cares and it shows so highly recommended!
