Dive Master

Are you ready to become a pro member in the diving industry? Dive Master Course is a fun and challenging opportunity for those who wish to become dive professionals.  Candidasa and Bali are a great place to go for it.

To  obtain the Dive Master rating, you need to have Dive Guide and Science of Diving certifications.

During Science of Diving program, you will strengthen your dive theory knowledge in diving physics, diving physiology, decompression theory, diving equipment and the aquatic environment,  which is the foundation for creative problem solving.

The Dive Guide course builds on the problem solving skills developed in the Diver Stress and Rescue program, and extends their application from accident management and prevention to supervisory situations with students and certified divers. The course also helps divers form the appropriate leadership attitude and prepares them to make sound judgment calls. Dive master candidates learn to problem-solve safety-related issues, and to have a positive, solution-oriented attitude toward customer service, business and operational challenges.

But Dive Master Course is not only about learning excellent dive skills and keeping your knowledge on dive theory. During your Dive Master Course, you will also have daily training by being part of our day to day operations. The course requirements are extensive, and your instructors will go through these with you before you start.

Dive Master program is a course for people that have a passion for SCUBA diving, the sea, the lifestyle, and the conservation of the Marine Life and habitats. If you can work in something you love, consider yourself very fortunate person. Dive Masters are looked up to by other divers and they have the ability to be leaders and mentors that can motivate others. Once completed your training you will have leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise and guide certified divers on recreational scuba dives, assist Instructors with conducting entry-level and continuing education scuba training programs, and manage certain areas of a Dive operation.
