A divemaster leads diving trips and helps divers in and out of the water. He goes on the boat with the divers to their destinations and is responsible for ensuring their safety and preventing accidents.
To become a divemaster, you must be certified; the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) is the most popular training organisation. You'll need to take courses that will generally last around three months at a dive centre. You can find courses and descriptions at padi.com.
Skills you'll need as a divemaster include boat-handling abilities, computer acumen, and technical experience with diving equipment. Being about to speak a foreign language can also be desirable if you want to work at a resort.
The average salary of a divemaster, according to simplyhired.com is £24,700. If you work in a gear shop you can also earn commission from equipment sales.
