Become a dive instructor
The Divemaster course is the gateway to becoming a dive instructor.
It’s an advanced training program that provides the knowledge and skills necessary to obtain your instructor certification, opening up the possibility of developing a professional career by guiding and training other divers.
Trainee Divemasters are expected to become role models for responsible and ethical behavior in diving. As we like to say at DPM Diving, they are true ambassadors of the oceans, committed to respecting the marine environment and raising awareness about the importance of minimizing our impact during the activity.
The certification is issued by the international diving association SSI, and during the course, students gain a deep understanding of diving theory, practical skills, management of diver groups, and dive supervision.
It is an experience that goes beyond certification; it’s a journey into exploration, teaching, and the conservation of the underwater world. If you dream of a career in diving, this is the first step in your exciting journey into the depths of the ocean, where you’ll join a community of professionals passionate about marine preservation and education.

One of the most exciting aspects of the Divemaster course is the opportunity to hone your diving skills. This means getting hands-on experience underwater. Throughout your training, you will complete a series of dives in various conditions and marine environments, making you a highly competent diver.
You will also learn how to navigate underwater, lead groups of divers, and perfect your rescue skills.
