In the core courses listed above all materials, equipment and certifications are included, nothing else to pay.
Keep in mind some courses are mandatory, some are optional, to get to Divemaster you will need, as a minimum, to be certified Open Water, Advanced Open Water, EFR and Rescue, and have logged 40 or more dives. If you would like to know more about other recommended courses (such as enriched air, or gas blender) ask us how they can benefit you.
The Divemaster course is 55,000 PHP and includes the Deep and Enriched Air Specialties, the materials are 10,000 PHP, the registration fee with PADI is currently $187 AUD, equipment rental is 1500 PHP per week if needed. We keep these costs separate as you may bring your own materials if you wish, this is a good way to get a head start on your studies before you arrive here, the registration fee is paid directly to PADI.
Once your Divemaster training is complete, you may wish to stick around and gain some more experience. To facilitate this we offer our Divemaster trainees weekly experience packages with unlimited access to scheduled dive trips (subject to available space), for 7500 PHP per week.
Increase your number of diving hours, put your newly learned skills to use, and get something that will stand out on your resume and job applications.
The question “can I work for you after training” comes up a lot, in an ideal world we would employ everyone who trained with us, sadly this is not always possible, we only have so many vacancies. When we do have positions available we always give priority to our graduates (YOU), we know they are good!
What we can do for every new Divemaster looking for work is to use our extensive list of industry contacts to market your resume (we can help with that if you do not have one too), we have been training dive pro’s for a long time and have a good track record of helping our candidates find their first job.
After reading this far you should have some idea of what you would like to include in your training, email us and tell us how long you have to train with us, when you will arrive, what courses you would like to take, we’ll come back to you with a suggested package and cost. If you have any diving experience, please tell us about that as well.
If you would like to continue training past Divemaster to instructor please let us know and we can include that in your quote, you can read more about the PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC) here
