The PADI Divemaster course is your first level of professional training. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, you’ll fine-tune your dive skills and refine your rescue skills so you anticipate and easily solve common problems. You’ll gain dive knowledge, management and supervision abilities so you become a role model to divers everywhere. 

As a PADI Divemaster, you’ll lead others as you supervise scuba diving activities and assist with diver training. PADI Divemasters are respected dive professionals who are aligned with the largest and most respected dive organization in the world – PADI.

These courses are not offered by the University of Malta and no certification will be issued by the University.

Assistant Instructor

For those looking to start teaching scuba then why not progress up to Assistant Instructor? This qualification enables you to teach a range of PADI diving programs, such as Seal Team, Skin Diver and Peak Performance Buoyancy. You will also be able to teach knowledge development segments from various PADI courses. 

The AI course is also the first part of the Instructor Development Course, and is an ideal stepping stone for those candidates who prefer to progress in smaller stages. 

When an AI is ready to progress, attending an OWSI program allows entry into an IE to earn a full PADI Instructor rating.

Open Water Scuba Instructor

Teaching scuba diving allows you to share your love of the aquatic world with others while doing what you enjoy – being in, around and under water. 

Are you ready to join the ranks of the dedicated professionals who teach the world’s most progressive and popular scuba diver education programs? Then Go PROSM with an Instructor Development Course.

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) is made up of two parts – the Assistant Instructor (AI) course and the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) program. Most dive professionals complete the entire IDC and go on to attend an Instructor Examination (IE), which is the final step to earn a PADI Instructor certification.

Commencement of diving sessions

From week commencing 20 March all levels of courses will be running.  Contact the Coordinator of the Diving Resource Centre for more information and booking.
