PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities by training you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers.

An added benefit in completing your training here at WWDC, is that you will also be exposed to many other attributes of the Dive Industry, and will gain experience in Retail, Compressed Gas filling, Equipment, Boat crewing etc, all of which will strengthen your ability as a Divemaster.
