You are now a PADI professional, so it’s time to take what you have learnt and put it into practice. Lead dives, conduct Scuba Reviews for out of practice divers, assist instructors with student divers., and pick up another 100+ dives. Attain real leadership skills and confidence from the knowledge that you can handle real responsibility.
This experience is invaluable, especially in preparing to become a SCUBA Instructor. Any PADI Course Director (Instructor Trainer) will confirm that the caliber of Instructor candidates who have real Divemaster experience is far above those who have just completed the required training.
