PADI Divemaster Internship.
Zero to Hero in just 8 weeks.
As a PADI Professional I am often asked, what made you decide to teach Scuba diving. I tell people that I love diving and I love changing people's life.
Although my official PADI title is Master Scuba Diver Trainer, I would like to think of myself as Life Changer. Every time I take someone new, into the underwater world, I get a feeling of elation watching them take in their surroundings and all the new and wonderful things that our seas have to offer. It is even better when they come out all excited and telling me all about the dive they just taken. I love to see smiling faces.
If you would like to become a 'life changer' too, then Amarilla Divers 6 to 8 week PADI Divemaster internship course is for you.
Amarilla Divers will take you through a few stages in the Divemaster internship placement. There will be some practical lessons & also some theory, don't worry you will always have an instructor on hand to help you through every step.
Step one. Recreational diver.
The first step in the courses is the PADI Open Water diver course.
This course will show you the 20 basic skills that we need to know as divers, some theory about how diving affects us, some open water dives and lots of fun. After this first course, you will be certified to a depth of 18 meters anywhere in the world.
This course is split into confined water training (pool)
and also open water training (Sea)
The next course is the PADI Advanced course.
Don't worry there is not much theory to this one!. You will learn a little more about how diving affects us, especially at depth, you will also learn a little about underwater navigation and then also have some adventure dives. This course will certify you to a depth of 30 meters, PLUS it will give you more experience in the water and a lot more confidence.
The PADI rescue diver course
This course focuses on how you would help other divers in an emergency situation. You learn in-water techniques for rescue breathing, identifying panicked divers/tired divers, underwater recovery skills and much more.
Along with the PADI rescue diver course, you will also complete the Emergency First Response course. This is the primary and secondary care (first aid ) course. You will learn how to provide adequate care in an emergency situation plus barrier usage, CPR, bandages, oxygen kit use, shock management and more.
Step two. Divemaster course.
As you start the PADI Divemaster course, you will learn a lot more about the diving theory, this includes equipment, decompression theory, Physics of diving, physiology of diving and generals skills. You will also learn how to become a 'Dive Guide' How to brief your clients, adhere to safety guide lines and conduct environmental risk assessments. Plus you will learn a few dive sites here in Tenerife, but also learn how to orientate yourself to new dive sites.
During the Divemaster course you will also be perfecting your own personal dive skills, so that if needed , you could help novice divers in training.
Step three. Experience
This part will be focused on giving you the maximum benefit of being a Divemaster. You will gain the minimum of 60 dives for completion of your Divemaster certification, plus you gain more experience, confidence and control in the water.
There will be times that you will do the whole briefing, risk assessment and manage the dive, along with a PADI instructor at your side.
After all 3 steps have been completed, we will send in your request for Divemaster status & you will be qualified as a PADI Divemaster/ certified assistant. Then the world will be your oyster. There are many options available to you after this course is completed.
You will have the option to work worldwide as a Dive Guide in international resorts or on liveaboards. You will also be able to help current PADI Instructors in their teaching courses.
You may decide that you want to advance further and become a PADI instructor yourself.
