Now it gets REAL!!! This is probably the most fun part of the entire programme. This grooms you for your Dive Master Course. During this phase you shadow a PRO Dive Master and can log between 60 & 100 dives in this period.
The most important part of this phase is that here you learn responsibility. You have people’s lives in your hands and are responsible for the divers’ safety and fun. But this is also a business after all and these are our customers. This is a massive responsibility, you now must keep customer service in mind. You start learning what it takes to keep your customer happy and how to read people to have a successful business.
The idea is that during the +- 100 dives as a shadow Dive Master you will have experienced all sorts of weather and diving conditions, good and bad. Similarly, all types of divers good and bad. Now you learn to cope with real life situations, put your skill set and decision making capabilities to the test while still under the direct supervision of a PRO. Anyone can do a Dive Master Course, meet minimum standards and get the badge, this phase makes you a REAL Dive Master and gives you the confidence that you can dive and take care of other divers in any conditions under any circumstances. Equipping you for diving anywhere, making the world, quite literally your oyster.
You’ll encounter highly successful people from all over the world. The experience you get from interacting with these people is invaluable. You’ll start to see that possibilities are limitless if you want it bad enough.
