Take a look and compare what you can teach when you continue your professional diver education..

During the PADI Divemaster course, you learn dive leadership skills through both classroom and independent study. You will assist an instructor during open water courses to understand and learn the teaching method. Also, you will have to complete water skills and stamina exercises, not forgetting training exercises that would extend your ability to organize and solve problems while helping others improve. You put this knowledge into practice through a series of practical training exercises and exams during your course of learning at SSS Phuket Dive center.
To take this course, you must be:

• 18 years old
• A PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organization)
• A PADI Rescue Diver (or qualifying certification from another training organization)
• An Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (or qualifying first aid and CPR training from another organization) course completion within the past 24 months.
• Have at least 40 dives to begin the course and 60 for certification
• Be fit for diving and submit a Medical Statement (PDF) signed by a physician within the last 12 months.

You would use all the basic scuba gear and some scuba accessories such as a dive slate, dive knife, compass, dive watch, etc.
It is highly recommended that you have your own scuba equipment, as familiarity with your personal gear improves general scuba diving. Everything that you would need during your dives are available in SSS Phuket and please feel free to ask us should you have any queries..
