Koh Tao Divemaster Training Schedules

To begin with you will sit an Orientation. This is conducted by one of our two dedicated ‘Divemaster in Training co-ordinators’. Our DMT Co-ordinators will be responsible for supervising your entire course and overseeing your schedule from Day 1.

As well as scheduling they personally conduct the following modules:

  • Skill Circuits
  • Knowledge Development; Knowledge Reviews & Exams
  • DM Workshops
  • Deep Diver Workshop
  • Search & Recovery Workshop
  • Water Assessments (swim tests)Underwater Mapping Project
  • Emergency Assistance Plan (EAP)

Early during your DM course you will be assigned a ‘mentor’ from our Instructional team. They will personally oversee your progress and ensure your course is progressing as you wish (and as we wish too!).

You will spend some of the course ‘assisting student divers in training’ and although you will have the opportunity to assist a variety of our Instructors, when possible you will assist your mentor.

We will schedule your training in sequence, building up your diving skills, confidence and experience step by step whilst you enjoy Koh Tao’s fantastic dive sites and marine life.

We have over 25 dive sites close to the island ranging from shallow coral reefs, giant boulders, small caves and swim-throughs to deeper outer laying pinnacles. There are also two wreck dives within a 25 minute trip.

As your Divemaster internship progresses, you’ll gradually assume more responsibility, becoming more and more part our team.

You’ll be assisting with:

  • Boat & dive centre logistics
  • Assisting our certified Divemasters with certified divers
  • Delivering briefings to divers
  • Assisting our Instructors with student diver training
  • Guiding certified divers on underwater tours
  • You can dive as much as you want so expect to log many dives, working together with people from all over the world.

We also have 3 medium to large dive boats. Our dive boat runs twice daily; two dives in the morning (from about 07:30- 12:00), then again in the afternoon (from about 12:30 till 17:00) with night dives usually every second night.
