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 19-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

Brilliant experience on the 3 day Liveaboard

Amazing experience on the 3 day Liveaboard. Great service and the crew were very helpful and knowledgeable. The dive sites were brilliant. Catering was excellent and the boat was comfortable to stay on. Excellent value for money.

10/10 Must do!

The Trip was absolutely amazing. Thanks to my instructor Christine, I had no issues being under water and were able to focus on the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef.

10 out of 10!

Had the absolute best time with Prodive Cairns! Both of our instructors Flo and Delana were great - so good at what they do and so fun to be around. The entire experience from training in the pool & classroom to being out on the reef was more than I ever could have hoped. Cant stress enough what a great service Prodive provides, the entire crew go above & beyond. Will definitely be back to continue my education & recommend as many people as I can to give it a go 😊 you definitely will not regret it!
