PACKAGE A: DIVEMASTER CAREER PROGRAM

GETTING STARTED

The PADI Divemaster Career Program with Khao Lak Scuba Adventures has a really flexible schedule; you can start any day you like! Prior to starting your internship you do need to make sure that you meet the prerequisites for the course. If you need to complete any of these prerequisite courses then we will do them at the beginning of your Divemaster Career Program.

WEEK 1 - 4

During the first month of the program, you will be scheduled to do a number of things that any Divemaster may be called to do in a real working environment: like assisting on courses, supervising divers, giving dive briefings, executing rescue scenarios, and more. Once you begin the Divemaster course curriculum, you’ll start with a formal orientation which will introduce you to all the performance requirements of the Divemaster course. You’ll also get to understand the schedule that is in place to help you meet your goals in diving.

WEEK 5 – 6

Normally, after one month and once you have met all the required course standards, you will apply to become a PADI Divemaster. Our Divemaster program focuses on providing you real life experiences so you are ready to be part of the diving industry. During the 5th & 6th  week you will apply what you have learned with our day divers, working with student divers and guiding certified divers. This is where you really benefit with the two month Divemaster Internship. While our experienced instructional staff can work with you to help you understand the role of a Divemaster, it’s by actually going out with real divers that you’ll learn all the tricks of the trade.

The all-inclusive price for our one month Divemaster Career Program is just 44900 THB, which we believe offers fantastic value for money and is an industry setter in terms of quality of training and course content. The price includes tuition, unlimited diving, equipment rental, materials and fun. Not included are visas, accommodation and PADI fees.
