Now you have done your Advanced Open Water course and you can dive deeper, it makes sense to know how to react to an emergency or how to help others in need. The Rescue Diver Course is often said to be one of the most fun and rewarding courses you can take as a diver. Instructors love to teach it, Divemaster trainees love to assist on it and students love to learn techniques that will help with their normal diving as well as emergency situations.
Upon successful completion of this course you will have a much greater confidence in your own diving abilities and the capability to recognise emergency situations before they arise and deal with them appropriately.
5+ Weeks - 15,000,000 IDR (Crewpack not included)
Love diving? Want to spend more time under the water? Want to share your love of diving with others? Want to feel the joy of getting a ‘PADI Pro Number’? As a dive master you can lead certified divers on fun dives and show them the amazing things to see under water. You are closer in level to students than the instructor and so when assisting on courses students often ask more questions to the DM than the Instructor- you will be their best friend for 3 days, and maybe for life!
On the Divemaster Course you will learn how to assist an instructor on a full range of courses, how to give a dive briefing, how to guide certified divers on fun dives, how to assist with the everyday tasks of a dive centre such as filling tanks in the compressor room and how to sell equipment and courses, plus a range of other skills. An instructor will be your mentor and guide you through the full course, giving theory lectures and workshops to help with your practical learning.
Upon successful completion of the course you will be certified to work as a PADI Professional within dive centres all over the world.
