Go Pro! Welcome to Professional Diving!
We at Diver Dan’s look forward to helping you get trained as a PADI Divemaster. As a PADI Divemaster, you will be able to act as an instructional assistant to a PADI Instructor, or act as a professional guide leading divers to new and exciting dive destinations. If you have any questions, or would like to sign up, stop by or call us. See you “Down Under” !
In order to become a PADI Divermaster you must first already be a PADI Advanced Diver (or equivalent) and a PADIRescue Diver (or equivalent). You must be 18 years old and be certified in CPR and First Aid. You must also have logged at least 40 dives to begin the program.
The total training fees are $600.00. The fees are broken down as follows:
$25.00 Registration Fee
$600.00 Instructor / Certification Fee
No store fees will be refunded once class has begun. Classes are transferable for up to one year from original start date.
In training to become a PADI Divermaster, there are three phases of training: Watermanship, Academics, and Internship. Since program schedules differ from instructor to instructor, your training schedule will also vary. Your PADI Instructor will outline your training schedule in detail.

If you are currently under the care of a medical doctor, or have a pre-existing medical condition that requires permission from a physician, you will need to have a signed medical release form from your doctor before you can participate in any in-water activities.
To obtain a medical release form and view some conditions that would require a doctors release, download the PADI Medical Release Form to review before coming to class.
