DIVEMASTER or DIVE GUIDE

A Divemaster (DM) is a recreational diving role which includes organising and leading recreational dives, particularly in a professional capacity, and is a qualification used throughout most of the world in recreational scuba diving for a diver who has supervisory responsibility for a group of divers and as a dive guide.

As well as being a generic term, Divemaster is the title of the first professional rating of many training agencies, such as CMAS, PADI and SSI. The Divemaster certification is generally equivalent to the requirements of international Standard ISO 24801-3 Dive Leader.

The certification is a prerequisite for instructor training in recreational diving in most diving training agencies worldwide.

 

RESPONSABILITIES OF THE DIVEMASTER or DIVE GUIDE

The role of a Divemaster may vary, but will generally include the following roles:

1/- Organizing, conducting and supervising recreational diving activities (but not training), both shore and boat based.

2/- Assisting instructors in conducting training programs and activities for certified divers:
- Generally supervising non-training related diving activities by planning, organizing and directing dives.
- assessing the hazards of a dive site and informing the divers of the hazards,
- briefing divers on the layout and points of interest of a dive site,
suggesting routes for a dive at a specific site for autonomous divers,
- checking divers into and out of the water from a boat or shore entry point,
- leading a group of divers in the water as a tour guide.

3/- Within the limits of some agencies, Divemasters may:
- Act as instructional assistants to instructors.
- Supervise participants in experience programs for uncertified divers.
- Teach and certify skin divers and snorkellers.
- Conduct scuba review programs for certified divers.

 

7-DAY TRAINING PROGRAM OF THE DIVEMASTER or DIVE GUIDE

During Divemaster training, candidates learn dive leadership skills through classroom, independent study and practical training exercises.

Some Divemaster programs require an internship program too.Ils effectuent des exercices techniques et d’endurance en piscine et en mer.

They perform technical exercises and endurance in the pool and at sea and these intensive training exercises improve their ability to organize and solve problems to help divers under their responsibility to improve their diving levels.

Candidates put this knowledge into action through a structured internship or a series of practical training exercises, including the candidate assisting in actual diving programs with real diving students.

Divemasters can develop to Divemaster level through two different methods:
1/- Either through progressing along the recreational levels of diving,
2/- Or, through Divemaster internships that fast-track the candidate to Divemaster level by having them become involved in the training facility where they are training.
Divemaster internships are offered by many different dive shops under their respective organizations (CMAS, PADI, SSI, etc.).
The internship program allows the Divemaster candidate to not only complete the minimum learning requirements, but to also "intern" and practice what has been learned.
