Our program is beyond the standard and the most comprehensive in the Caribbean with the only PADI Career Development Center in Central America. You'll be assisting our experienced staff on their scuba diving classes, working on our boats, guiding certified divers, and all aspects of our dive operation and logistics.

The program consists of 3 separate modules, knowledge development, watermanship and practical assessment training. During knowledge development you’ll learn about supervising both students and certified divers, risk management, dive careers, in addition to gaining theoretical diving knowledge about physics, physiology, skills and environment, equipment and the recreational dive planner. You’ll also put your practical training into developing an underwater map of a local dive site.

The watermanship module will develop your strength and skills in the water and develop your confidence to a strong level of comfort. With guidance and counselling from our experienced Instructors you’ll soon develop into a true dive professional. In fact many of our Divemasters go on to successfully complete PADI Instructor training.

All Divemasters in training complete a foundational week where we cover watermanship, dive supervision classes, skills development, and practical skill sessions and workshops. Then after week 1 there are 2 options for completing your Divemaster ‘Practical Assessment’ training with us, Option A ‘Practical training exercises’ and Option B ‘Internship’.

Option A is for candidates who start the program with at least 50 dives but have time constraints so the program can be completed in approximately 2 weeks total, however independent study (either with course manuals or the e-learning option) is required prior to arriving on Utila and starting the course. After the foundational week 1 is completed then week 2 of practical assessments will be conducted with 4 role playing sessions and the final exams.
