Exciting New Divemaster programs at Go Pro Costa RicaAnd I can finally announce that we have put together some new Divemaster programs for Go Pro Costa Rica, sorry for the delay, I know it has been in the works for a while.
The PADI Divemaster program is a great structured program that encompasses dive theory, skills, assisting and a whole wealth of dive training, the idea being, to train you to work in the dive industry, as a guide or instructional assistant. Well, we have decided to take that program and elaborate on it, with two specific focuses that have been the most popular through the seasons here in Costa Rica. The first is the Eco Divemaster program. This has been developed for aspiring conservationists and those with more of an interest in marine biology and the environment. The idea behind this program is to focus on fish identification, ecology, coral reef biology and more. In addition to the standard divemaster program there will be extra workshops on coral reefs, shark conservation, turtle awareness and more. It will include all of the extras that the Fun-packed PADI divemaster internship at Go Pro Costa Rica includes anyway, at we have always had a focus on conservation, just additional extra programs to help you on your way in the Divemaster conservation field.
Our second Divemaster program is the technical divemaster program. As a Tec Rec center and with challenging waters for some part of the year, a lot of our trainees like to focus on technical diving and really taking their divemaster skills to the next level. Again, we include all elements of the standard PADI Divemaster program in this internship, but add additional training elements that are focused on technical diving and divemastering. This is equipment workshops, Tec basics including equipment configuration, self-sufficiency as a diver, as well as deep and enriched air diving. In addition to this we include the option to add on to this with a Tec 45 and Tec rescue program.
So with these two new PADI Divemaster programs as well as the standard PADI Divemaster internship which is pretty packed with extras already, there is a lot to think about when picking your divemaster training options.
Happy Bubbling!!!
