Description of the program

The divemaster training is the complete training to become a dive guide. It lasts about 10 weeks from the first dive and requires about 60 dives as well as course validation to obtain the state diploma.

It is quite possible to speed up certain stages of this training, depending on your initial diving level. For example, if you have limited time and you are a beginner, you can start with steps 1 and 2 and follow the other steps in another city or another country. You can also just follow one of the modules if you already have Open Water or Open Water Advanced. Please ask us for a quote for any specific request.
