Professional Development

Interested in sharing your knowledge with new divers? Looking for a new career? We can help you. At Underwater Dynamics we offer Divemaster, Assistant Instructor and Open Water Instructor courses. If you are already an instructor with another agency we offer a crossover program.

Divemaster Course

The Divemaster Course is the first professional level certification. During this course you will be challenged and learn what it is like to work with divers as they experience the underwater world for the first time and you will learn how to lead already certified divers and show them some of your favorite critters or dive sites. Your Instructor will also teach you how to manage divers, work the dive deck of a boat, and conducting safe and enjoyable dives. Other things you can expect to learn is diving Physics and Physiology, and being a professional SDI Divemaster. Your skills will be refined to demonstration quality and your knowledge increased to that of a professional.
