Divemaster Course Layout

The Maui Dreams Divemaster Course is comprised of three parts:

  1. eLearning- This part of the program is done in your own time and should be completed prior to the start of the in-person course. This program covers everything from explaining the role and characteristics of a divemaster to dive theory and includes knowledge development and the divemaster exam. If you want to learn more about Dive Theory, consider taking the PADI Dive Theory online program; this is not a requirement but it is a helpful learning tool.
  2. Skills Development and Practical Applications- During these six days you will be learning the ins and outs of what it takes to be a PADI Divemaster; from developing your dive skills demonstrations to completing your divemaster-conducted program workshops. These sessions are pre-scheduled and will be completed with your Maui Dreams Pro Team Divemaster Mentor, who will help guide you through developing your professional abilities.
  3. Practical Assessments - During the final part of your PADI Divemaster Course you will work with the Maui Dreams Pro Team as you learn to work with real-world students. This part of the program is on your own schedule and will teach you how to work as a divemaster in real diving situations so that you are ready to work in the industry after certification.
