Learn from the beginning and become a professional

Train to professional level by completing the Professional Divemaster Fast-track  PADI Dive programme with Quaystage Training. 

In choosing this method, as the name suggests, the course will be more intense and you will need to devote all your time and efforts for this shorter period to reach the standards required to be a Divemaster.

The programme will still give you the skills, guidance and teaching, and you will finish the course at a level where you feel confident to work in the Marine Dive industry.

As with the internship programme all requirements including academics, pool or confined water and open water sections are covered and need to be fulfilled.
