You see that the Divemaster Course contains a lot. That’s why we advise people not to think to lightly about the course and take enough time to do it.
During your internship at the dive center you will encounter all aspects of diving. Like filling the compressed air tanks, renting out dive-gear, selling products in the dive-shop. But also scheduling dives or help divers who want to go diving by themselves plan their dive safely.
