It was a great experience to be able to do this training in three different Two-Fish Divers locations (South Gillis/Lombok, Bunaken and Lembeh). I would like to thank all instructors for their excellent teaching and for sharing their experiences with me. I also should thank the Two-Fish Divers staff from this three locations for their warm welcome and all their support during my internship.

On completion you will be ready and prepared to lead others into the water, confident in the knowledge that you are able to safely deal with any situation.

PADI Divemaster Course and Learning Online


The PADI Divemaster course is the first professional level within the PADI System of diver education and allows you to work as a training assistant on PADI courses and programs, supervise certified divers during pleasure diving experiences, and conduct some PADI programs independently. Becoming a PADI Divemaster consists of the following segments: knowledge development, practical application and the Divemaster final exam. The online portion of the course, PADI Divemaster Online, covers nine topics that prepare you for the practical sessions needed to complete the Divemaster course. Through PADI’s eLearning® system and practical segments of the Divemaster course, you become well prepared to work as a PADI Divemaster.
Prior to enrolling in PADI Divemaster Online, you must be at least 18 years old, have a current medical attesting to your diving fitness signed by a physician within the previous 12 months, and be a certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and PADI Rescue or hold qualifying certifications from another dive training organization. You must also have completed a Emergency First Response (EFR) Primary and Secondary Care course (or other sanctioned first aid and CPR course) within the past 24 months and be able to prove that you have completed at least 40 dives (60 before being able to complete the Divemaster course with experience of deep dives, night dives and underwater navigation). If you have any questions as to whether you meet the necessary prerequisites, please email us direct.
After enrolling, PADI’s eLearning system presents you with interactive presentations that include videos, audio, graphics and reading. Short quizzes let you gauge your progress and review and correct anything you might happen to miss. This lets you move through the program efficiently and at your own pace.
The eLearning portion of the course is $200 (US) nonrefundable. This is an additional cost to the price of the course.

Other costs – There is a separate application fee due to PADI that needs to be submitted with the Divemaster application once the course is successfully completed.

Materials – The PADI Divemaster Online program will provide you with perpetual access to an ebook version of the PADI Divemaster manual, a required material. However, to complete the PADI Divemaster course, you also need a current PADI Instructor Manual, both the Table RDP and eRDPML, The Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving, and a set of the PADI Divemaster slates. These will be provided by us as part of your Divemaster Course.

Please contact us to discuss total courses costs, equipment, materials and logistical requirements.

Once you successfully complete Divemaster Online, you will need to successfully complete several practical assessments, workshops and other assignments with us in Bunaken or Lembeh. You will also need to complete the Divemaster Final Exam as well as meet the professionalism criteria.
The eLearning segment of the course is available for one year from the time of course registration. Though you must finish the online portion of the course within that time frame, you will have perpetual access to an online version of the PADI Divemaster manual.
Once you finish the eLearning portion of the course, your dive center is notified that you have completed it and that you are ready for the practical phase of the Divemaster course. At the end of the eLearning program, you can print out your eRecord and bring a copy of it with you when you visit us on Bunaken or Lembeh.
You can start your life changing journey right now! Please click here to go to our page on PADI website for your e-Learning Registration.
