Aussie Divers PADI Professional Level Divemaster

Do you love scuba diving? Want to share it with others on a whole new level? Take the PADI Divemaster course and do what you love to do as a career. Scuba divers look up to divemasters because they are leaders who mentor and motivate others. As a divemaster, you not only get to dive a lot, but also experience the joy of seeing others have as much fun diving as you do.

The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level, and it is a very complete and rewarding course. During this course you will work closely alongside the amazing Aussie Dives Instructional team, including PADI Course Director Darren Gaspari, Master Instructors, Staff Instructor’s and our highly experienced Senior Instructor’s (the best instructional team in Phuket!).

“You will be part of our team”.

PADI Divemaster Course Options

Aussie Divers Phuket offers two different options to choose for your PADI Divemaster course, depending on your current experience level, number of logged dives, and how long you are planning to stay in Phuket for. Most of our PADI Divemaster candidates in Phuket choose to do the more intensive ‘internship’ program over 2-3 weeks.

PADI Divemaster in 10-14* days *please contact us to obtain the requirements of this version of the course, extra charges may apply if additional days required to complete DM skills

PADI Divemaster Internship style program, assisting with full PADI courses & logging more dive’s, from 2-4 weeks.

The Aussie Divers internship option is a unique ‘hands-on’ experience where you will be assisting our instructor team with full courses from start to finish. We will assign you one of our experienced instructors to act as your personal ‘mentor’ throughout the whole divemaster program. This ‘mentor’ will assist you in developing your theory in the classroom and your skills in the pool, along with guiding you through the rest of the divemaster course.
