The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level course in the PADI diving system.
There are 2 pre requisites that you need to meet before you can start the Divemaster course and those are that you must have at least 40 logged dives and you must be a Rescue Diver with a current Emergency First Responder(EFR) certificate.
When you complete your Divemaster course you will need to complete a number requirements to be signed off as a Divemaster such as swim tests, skills circuits, assiting Instructors on Open Water, Advanced Open Water and Rescue Diver courses as well as learning more about dive theory.
The Divemaster course is a very flexible course and can be completed in 2 or 3 weeks, however most people prefer to take a little longer than that to complete it and some taking 6 months or more and split their Divemaster training over a couple of visits due to limited time available from work for example.
