The Specifics

The start to become a professional diver is to get your divemaster certification.  Here at Rich Coast Diving we offer a 3 month internship so you know all the ins and outs of a dive center.

We feel this way we deliver the best possible divemasters into the dive world. The program  will give you so much experience that it is an easy step towards the IDC.

The PADI Divemaster course consists of 3 modules:

1.Knowledge development, independent study, instructor led classes or online with PADI eLearning
2.Waterman ship,  open water skill practice, rescue skills, and stamina exercise.
3.Practical training,
1. assisting in PADI courses with Open water students and continuing education students
2.Mapping project
3.Workshops, scuba review, skin diver & snorkeling, DSD, and discover local diving

The course also includes a deep diver workshop and search and recovery, but here at Rich Coast Diving we feel you will get more experience in these fields by offering these 2 workshops as certified specialties at no extra cost.  This will give you extra Deep and  Search & Recovery  dives as an add-on to the program


• Be at least 18 years old at the start of training.
• Have a current medical attesting to your diving fitness signed by a physician within the previous 12 months.
• Be a certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue or hold qualifying certifications from another dive training organization.

¨If you do not have the time to do the internship, you can do the Divemaster course in 4 weeks, cost $1000. including books

You can start your the Divemaster Internship on any day here at Rich Coast Diving.  To start you need 40 logged dives , if this is not the case you get unlimited diving until you have reached this amount of dives.

We will start with the Course Orientation, then as soon as you finish your knowledge reviews you are ready to start the practical part.  For 6 days a week you will be diving and assisting in courses.  This will give you  a great advantage in your future plans as a PADI PRO.

We are very flexible with our schedule and  the specialties, Deep diver, Search & Recovery and Shark will be integrated during the 3 month period.  If you are interested in doing more specialties, they can be done in the same time frame of the internship.

Besides diving there are also pool sessions for your skills, workshops and stamina training.

Rich Coast had many enthusiastic instructors who are willing to help you out for extra practice any time.
