National Certificate in Diving
Leadership Level 4
Take the next step into the professional realm of Scuba Diving. It’s where it all begins. The National Certificate in Diving (Leadership) will fine-tune your diving skills whilst introducing you to the theory behind diving. Learn about dive physics, physiology, and equipment. Your adventure into the professional levels of scuba diving begins with the PADI Divemaster programme. Working closely with a PADI Instructor, in this programme you expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills to the professional level. PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers.
The PADI Divemaster qualification will enable you to gain employment within the dive and tourism sector as a dive guide and assist in the training of recreational divers anywhere in the world. This programme can then lead into other qualifications such as the National Certificate in Diving (Instruction) where you will gain your PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor with 5 specialty ratings.
