Ocean Diver Dive Club members can complete their Divemaster course through Ocean Diver school with no course fees. There are, however, costs involved with the Divemaster course independent of course fees. The course will be integrated into all courses run by the school, including the pool sessions. We will run further training sessions to develop the dive skills and to prepare for each part of the course.

As a Divemaster trainee (DMT) you are responsible for keeping records of your training and for arranging to attend as many training opportunities available. We will continue to mentor you once you’re a successful DM and support you if you decide to continue to Assistant Instructor/Instructor.
