Becoming a PADI Divemaster or PADI Instructor probably isn't as difficult or as expensive as you might think, however, there are a few prerequisites to consider:
You must be at least 18 years old.
To start the PADI Divemaster course in Phuket with Super Divers you must be certified as a PADI Rescue Diver and have a minimum of 40 logged dives. To become a PADI Instructor you’ll need 60 logged dives to begin the PADI Instructor Development Course (PADI IDC), and at least 100 logged dives to sit the PADI Instructor Exam (PADI IE).
You should be in good general health. If you have medical issues, or have had any medical conditions in the past, which could affect your ability to scuba dive safely, you need to get yourself checked out by a doctor and obtain a medical statement declaring that you are fit and healthy to dive.
You need to be able to swim at least 800 metres, as there are several swim tests conducted as part of the PADI Divemaster Course, which precedes the Instructor Development Course (IDC)
There must be minimum time period of six months between the date you are certified for your PADI Open Water Course and the date your Instructor Examination (IE) begins. For example: If you finish your Open Water Course on 21/01/2016, you cannot start the IE part of your IDC before 21/07/2016. This is a PADI requirement.
There are no time stipulations involving other courses.
It doesn't matter where you are on the PADI ladder at present. We can put together a career package that will be tailored especially for your needs and requirements, taking into account where you are on the ladder now, and where you would like to end up. If you're a PADI Open Water Diver and are looking to become a PADI Divemaster, you'd need to take the PADI courses below...
PADI Advanced Open Water Course PADI Emergency First Response PADI Rescue Diver Course PADI Divemaster Course
Normally, our prices for these PADI Courses would cost over 86,000 THB inclusive of all materials, books and certification fees. If you book all the courses together as a package we'd offer a 10% discount. If after the PADI Divemaster course in Phuket with us, you decide to become a PADI Instructor and enroll for the PADI IDC, you'll need the mandatory PADI IDC materials issued with a unique identifying hologram you'll need for the instructor examination. We can discount the cost of the PADI IDC materials by around 10,000 THB. All PADI materials for the PADI IDC will be offered to our candidates at cost price!
You'll also need a set of dive equipment. If you've taken your PADI Divemaster course with us we can offer 15% discount of retail prices here in Phuket.
The example equipment package below currently retails at more than 61,700 THB. We would give you a 15% discount from the retail price, so you would only pay 52,400 THB including VAT for this equipment package! All equipment we offer for sale is brand new and straight from the wholesalers. We will only sell branded, good quality, hard wearing and reliable dive gear - that Divemasters and Instructors can use and depend on for years. If we wouldn't use it, we won't sell it!

The career packages above can be changed and manipulated to suit your preferences. Indeed, if you have any personal equipment choices, we can incorporate them into your career package and adjust prices accordingly.
We are an established PADI 5 Star Dive Centre with years of experience in the Phuket scuba diving industry. The Phuket scuba diving business environment is constantly changing and it's difficult for prospective customers to make the right choices without detailed knowledge and experience in this area.
There are many companies here in Phuket that offer the full range of PADI Courses right through to instructor and beyond. Most of these companies are very good, a few are excellent. At scubadivingphuket.net we know many of these companies intimately and place our customers where we would like to be placed if it were ourselves taking these courses. We demand the very best. The facilities must be second to none. These facilities must include: clean and comfortable air-conditioned classrooms and study areas, an on-sight swimming pool for practicing confined water skills, a resident PADI Course Director who has obtained the coveted platinum status from PADI, multilingual staff, well maintained equipment and an excellent safety record, dive boats that service not only the day trip dive sites local to Phuket and Koh Phi Phi, but also the Similan Islands and have a minimum rating as a PADI 5 Star IDC Centre or above.
Often, would be divers book their courses online and hope for the best. How would you feel if you booked a career package online and then found out you could only dive one or two days a week because the dive centre you booked with didn't own or run it's own boats? This scenario happens all too often, but not if you book with us. We only use trusted quality operators that run their boats every day. We want our customers to return to us again and again so we will bend over backwards to make sure you get exactly what you're paying for and then some.
Please email us if you have any questions at all.
Booking a combined career and equipment package certainly has its advantages…
Because you're signing up for many PADI Courses and buying equipment, it will be a great deal cheaper than if you were to sign up for individual courses and buy equipment separately. If we make savings, we can pass those savings onto our customers. That means you have more money to spend on other things. Maybe you'd like to take a break during your long stay in Thailand, to take a two-centre scuba diving vacation taking in some world-class dive sites in Malaysia and the Philippines? How about two round trip airfares to Europe? This is how much you can save just by booking through us! The equipment packages and general equipment sales are heavily discounted against standard retail prices.
