Want to go pro? Our professional training
gives you top-notch training combined with unmatched flexibility,
allowing you to tailor your training to meet your needs.
We offer the following professional certifications, ranging from Divemaster to Instructor:
PADI Divemaster (DM)
DM course itself consists of:
- 7 theory modules
- 1 day of waterskills assessment and a first cut at a skill
- 1 day of stress testing and a second skill circuit
- 2-3 days of assisting in classrooms
- 2-3 days of leading dives
The above are the bare minimum requirements to be a Divemaster
- we generally recommend going beyond these minimum requirements.
Nothing beats experience when it comes to being a Divemaster,
and our DM Internship program is designed to provide that
experience: in this program, you would work as a DM, leading
dives, assisting with classes and conducting tune-ups. We'd
also go over regulator maintenance, how to fill tanks, eq
repair and so on - skills that are not taught in the formal
DM program but which are invaluable in the real world.
Rather than teaching you one way to do things, we encourage
you to work with all of our instructors - each of whom has
a unique style of operating. Pick out what works for you and
what doesn't work for you, and from there, develop your own
You also need to have 60 logged dives by the end of the program
- our DM Internship Program includes all the diving needed
to get to this level.
SSI Dive Control Specialist
(equiv to PADI Assistant Instructor):
The SSI DCS program is an extensive course, covering a wealth
of information about diving physiology, physics, diving safety
and more. We offer the SSI DCS rating either as a standalone
course, or in combination with the PADI AI course for people
want to maximize their employment potential.
SSI is a fast-growing certification agency, occupying the no.
1 spot in Australia - ahead of PADI, and coming second to PADI
in most other destinations. This means that SSI professionals
are in increasing demand (these days, SSI Instructors are the
most demanded dive professionals in the industry). Also, SSI's
unique philosophy to diver training makes it a very nice complement
to PADI, and gives you, as a working professional, more options.
NAUI is one of the oldest and most respected training agencies in the world. As a non-profit body, they have focused primarily on quality diver training over market share (in fact, one of their credos is "Better to train a few divers well than many divers poorly").
It is a privilege to be associated with NAUI and we are very proud to offer NAUI Instructor programs. The course itself takes 12 days, and requires Divemaster-level certification with an RSTC agency (PADI, SSI, etc).
In keeping with our dive philosophy, we don't run large,
high-volume courses. There really is no effective cookie-cutter
way to teach everyone how to become a dive professional -
and so we tailor our courses to meet the needs of each diver.
Becoming a professional means that you are responsible for
other people's safety - we take this very seriously and work
very hard to ensure that our dive professionals are indeed
capable of handling that responsibility.
