Our PADI Divemaster Program will give you an immersive experience into what it’s like to work as a professional diver through working with our Sunreef crew. Along the way, you’ll gain a level of skill that will prepare you for working in the professional diver environment. If you have been wanting to make a career change into the dive industry, the Sunreef PADI Divemaster Program is where you will start.
Duration: Each course is personally tailored to meet your needs, so you would need to come in and sit down to make a plan on how to incorporate the course around your work schedule. Some people take several months to complete it, others can complete the course in a month or so – however please bear in mind you would be reliant on the weather which can vary at any time of year.
Meeting point: Sunreef at The Wharf, Mooloolaba
Price: $1999 including your books, all the required PADI materials for the course, all Sunreef charter and pool entry fees for dives and skills toward the completion of your course, an internationally recognised PADI Divemaster Certification.
We run a “work-for-diving” program to get you up to the level you need if you have not yet logged 40 dives, however unfortunately this only applies to the extra dives, not affecting the course fee.
Prerequisite: You will need to hold a PADI Rescue Diver certification or equivalent plus 40 logged dives. You must also have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care within the last 24 months. Divemasters must be adequate swimmers, feel comfortable in the water, and in good physical health. You must be 18 years or older. You will also be required to have either a Recreational Dive Medical (AS 4001.5) or an Occupational Dive Medical (AS 2299.1) done in the last 12 months as it is a requirement by Queensland Workplace Health and Safety. If you plan on working in the industry, we recommend getting the AS 2299.1 Occupational Dive Medical.
