UWE and Ocean Quest Dive Centre has started the first PADI Divemaster course of 2012 here at the dive center. We have two students Greg and Roger who have come and joined us for their training, both students have signed up to do their instructor ratings as well, so there certainly is a lot of work ahead of them.
Classes are running at a hectic pace with Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Both students are working hard and doing a fabulous job on their training. With the first exam session quickly approaching, both Greg and Roger have been working hard at learning all the Regulations that apply to the position while learning how to be an assistant in the Open Water training role, and how to become Dive Leaders.
This Saturday past Roger and Greg worked as the Dive Leaders on our Saturday Drop in Dive (SMD). They were tasked to give the dive briefings, as well as lead the dives where they faced various realistic problems with the divers they were responsible to lead. Both DMT’s did a fabulous job, with all be some minor problems that were pointed out and fixed for the next dive.
Well done to you both Roger and Greg, keep up the good work, and I will seeing you in some beautiful tropical location one day soon! Interested in taking the PADI Divemaster Course, or going on the Saturday Morning Drop in dive, contact us at Ocean Quest and let us answer your questions.
