Here at Rock Salt Scuba we offer some of the most rigorous divemaster and instructor programmes avaialble to fully prepare you for your future career in diving. As professionally qualified educators, not just dive instructors, we are well placed to provide you a solid grounding in educational theory to enhance your future career prospects.
The SDI 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. You will also learn how to manage divers, work the dive deck of a boat and gain many valuable skills that will help in your diving career. Your skills will be refined to demonstration quality and your knowledge increased to that of a professional. After you have completed the SDI Divemaster course you can move onto the SDI Assistant Instructor Course where you will learn more about academic presentations and have the ability to teach certain SDI specialties.
The SDI Assistant instructor course is designed for you to gain practical teaching experience with an active SDI Instructor or Instructor Trainer. You will help an Instructor teach an Open Water Scuba Diver course, Advanced Diver Course, and Rescue Diver Course. You will also learn how to prepare lesson plans, give academic presentations and general dive management techniques beyond those covered in your Divemaster course.
The TDI Technical Divemaster programme is designed to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for an individual to lead certified Technical Divers in the open water environment. Many Sport divers and instructors wishing to open up more opportunities become Technical Divemasters as it helps advance dive theory and teaches more advanced diving techniques that employers are looking for in the business of diving.
