This special program covers bunch of courses to guide candidates to achieve Divemaster rating starting from Rescue Diver and/or EFR course.

 

Who should take this program?

Divemaster Prevocational Program is strictly for enthusiastic divemaster candidates who are willing to spend every weekend on the diving boat but without the Rescue Diver and/or EFR certifications.  Besides the requirements listed in the EFR, Rescue Diver and Divemaster courses, the candidates will have other extra requirements to fulfill listed by Diving Express. Not only to gain working experience on the boat before they work as a professional divemaster, but also to get more opportunities to dive at different local dive sites, and watch our inhouse diving instructors how to teach diving courses.  Only the selected candidates can join this special program before a new diving season starts.

We will start the EFR and Rescue Diver courses with the selected candidates.  Then, after the candidates meet all the pre-requisites for Divemaster course, we will continue the training for the candidates until they fulfill all the requirements in this program.

You’ll learn to how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient, so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.
  • Secondary Care (First Aid) – Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm.
