About the Course

At Dive Utah we know how it feels to love diving.

Look at us, we work here!!

When you want to turn pro, it’s time to become a Divemaster. Part tour guide, part equipment gopher, part assistant instructor, you’ll do it all as a Divemaster.

n the Watermanship and Skill Assessment portion, you'll demonstrate your comfort in the water and refine your diving skills to the point of being able to demonstrate them for students.

In the Knowledge Development portion, you'll learn more about the theory of diving, including dive planning, dive management and control, supervising students in training, physics, physiology, equipment, skills and environment and dive tables.

In the Practical Application portion, you'll work with actual Open Water students in both the confined and open water and lead advanced specialty dives like night and deep dives.
