December is the perfect time to think about what you want to accomplish in the coming year, and if becoming a dive professional tops your list, Jupiter Dive Center can help you realize your dream!
In a nutshell, divemasters help other divers hone their skills, assist instructors with classes, and apply advanced dive theory knowledge to prevent and solve problems. The fun part is being a dive professional means you can travel the world, explore exotic locations, and get paid to dive!
Divemaster is a hands-on, intensive course. After completing your academics online, you’ll spend five weekends developing practical skills that include water skills, rescue and first aid review, dive site management and set-up, and how to conduct introductory scuba and skin diver courses. During the course, you’ll also assist with specialty courses under the supervision of your instructor.
Here’s how to plan:
First the prerequisites: to become a professional divemaster, you’ll need to be a certified rescue diver and have First Aid, AED, and CPR certifications, 40 logged dives, complete a medical statement, and obtain a doctor’s approval.
Next, the equipment: To become a dive professional, you’ll need to purchase a dive master learning kit containing certification standards, teaching slates and more. You’ll also need equipment such as lift bags and reels. Because all Jupiter Dive Center charters are drift dives, divers must have their own surface marker buoy and timing device.
