After doing my PADI Open Water and PADI Advanced Open water course with Sunshine Divers, I knew that this was the place I was going to complete my Divemaster Training. I've always really appreciated the family like atmosphere around the dive school and whoever passes through to complete any course here will always be introduced with such professionalism and positive feelings.
I started my PADI Divemaster Course straight after completing my PADI Rescue Diver program at the start of this year and overall it took around 8 weeks to complete. I had a steady balance of taking my time and really enjoying all the dive sites around Koh Tao and gaining the experience to make sure I was proactive and always assisting courses and helping out whenever I was needed.
My favourite part of the Divemaster Course was assisting the senior members of staff on their courses whether it was a PADI Discover Scuba Diving Program, PADI Open Water, PADI Advanced or PADI Rescue Divers Course. I also enjoyed the chance to help out in the PADI Instructor Development Course as a problem student where i really gained further assurance in my personal ability as a PADI Divemaster.
I will treasure the whole experience forever and I am very grateful for all the senior members of staff, the DMT's/ DM's around me at the time of my internship and all the friends I have made throughout my training that helped me in their individual ways!
I am now currently working at Sunshine Divers as a PADI Divemaster and I'm loving every minute of it!
