Instructor Lucas has been busy in the training pool with the Divemaster Internship candidates.
Alexandria, Aaron and Tom completed their 15 minute tread water plus had a first crack at the PADI Divemaster skills circuit. Plus Cate tagged along in preparation for starting her PADI Instructor Development Course next month.
As part of the PADI Divemaster Internship, candidates have to undertake a series of watermanship evaluations. Today we ticked off the first one. The gang tread water for 15 minutes, with their hands out of the water for the final two minutes. They all did great.
Next we went through a scuba diving skills circuit. PADI Divemasters are expert level divers and must be able to perform scuba skills to demonstration standard. This includes all the skills from the PADI Open Water Course; Scuba gear assembly, pre-dive safety check, giant stride entry, mask clearing, regulator clearing, alternate air source use, fin pivots, hovering, using signals and much more. For a first attempt the gang did well, and we’ll be further fine tuning their skill demonstrations over the coming weeks and months here on Koh Tao.
