Requirements for the PADI Divemaster course certification in Thailand

PADI Divemaster Course Thailand

Price: 36,900 THB training + PADI material & certification

Course duration: min 30 Days

Becoming a diving professional is an important decision and the Divemaster course is where you start. As a dive professional you are expected to be knowledgeable, experienced and responsible. None of those things happen overnight and without a little work.

At Kiwidiver every professional level course is customized to fit the individual so depending on your level of experience and the time you have available we work on a plan to get you the best training experience we can. The more time you can allow us the more additional training we can give you.

Unlike our Divemaster Internship, the standard PADI Divemaster course is designed around getting you the qualification as fast as possible so that you can return to your home dive center to gain the experience to be a real Divemaster there.

While there are dive centers offering express courses in as little as 14 days for discounted prices, we at Kiwidiver do not believe you can achieve the level of hands-on training we would expect of a dive professional in such a short time frame.  The Kiwidiver Divemaster course takes a minimum of 30 days.

The more prepared you are for this course the better, so we like to get you the materials beforehand and strongly recommend the optional PADI Dive Theory Online eLearning package.
