As a dive professional, you’ll want to have all your own basic scuba equipment. During practical skills exercises, like underwater mapping and search and recovery, you’ll use a compass, floats, marker buoys, lift bags and slates. Your PADI Instructors may suggest, or you may decide on additional gear that will be useful throughout your diving career.
We will work with you and the equipment you have to work as a dive professional.
We do insist that all equipment used is serviced and tested in line with manufacturer’s recommendations at the very least. We can service and maintain virtually every piece of kit you have, on site, if needed.
Here at Poole Diving we really like to do this course in an intern style. This means they are rarely scheduled as a course on the calendar. However we work with you to create a schedule that works for you and were possible it will be working with real students.

As with any PADI course, the Divemaster course is performance based. The length of time it takes to complete depends very much upon each individual candidate and your time availability.

Complete an apprenticeship in the role in real life so once you complete you already have experience for your C.V.
