- The PADI Divemaster certification welcomes you to professional diving status! Earning the PADI Divemaster rating opens the door to your whole new lifestyle. During this internship you develop leadership skills by learning specialized techniques to supervise dive activities, assist with training divers, and create quality dive experiences for Banyan Tree Divers’ guests. You also get the opportunity to assist Banyan Tree Divers in conservation efforts within Maui’s dive community.
- The PADI Divemaster rating is the cornerstone to pursue a career in scuba diving. The program consists of three main modules: knowledge development sessions, water skills exercises, and practical assessment training. To keep everything focused you have a PADI instructor from Banyan Tree Divers as your mentor. Together you learn how to supervise new and certified divers, risk management skills, and career opportunities in diving. Additionally, you work closely with your mentor to sharpen your knowledge of five distinct dive theory topics: physics, physiology, skills and environment, equipment, and decompression theory.
- All PADI Divemaster training culminates in a profound understanding of what it means to be a true dive leader and role-model for other divers. To reach this level of confidence you need to actively learn exercises to fine-tune each of the required surface and underwater skills. Additionally, you refine your rescue skills by completing the rescue exercise and scenarios.
- The course takes a minimum of four weeks to complete. To begin the Divemaster program you must be 18 years old, have a renewed EFR certificate, Rescue Diver rating, and 40 logged dives. Please contact Banyan Tree Divers for further information regarding this esteemed internship.
