The Divemaster is the first professional level on the PADI career path. The Divemaster programme is designed to train suitably qualified individuals in a supervisory role, who can oversee general diving activities, serve as an underwater guide or act as a certified assistant to an Instructor.
The two part Instructor Development Course will develop your ability to organise and supervise diving activities. Part 1, the PADI Assistant Instructor is the first step on the PADI Instructor ladder where you will learn the basics of scuba education. In Part 2, the PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, you are taught to conduct the entire range of PADI programmes from Discover Scuba Diving through to Divemaster.
The PADI IDC Staff Instructor programme coincides with the IDC programmes. This builds upon your experience and abilities as a dive educator while concentrating on developing evaluation and counselling skills. Once qualified you can independently teach parts of the IDC and assist the Course Director in the handling of the whole programme.
Emergency First Response Instructor training will develop your instructional abilities to teach first aid skills to others. It provides you with the additional training necessary to teach the Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) and Care for Children courses.
