PADI DSD Leader Training and Certification in Cozumel, Mexico
PADI Divemasters can earn the PADI DSD Leader certification and MAKE MORE MONEY! $150 / 1 – 2 days
As a certified DSD Leader you can also take 2 participants on subsequent open water dives, provided the participants completed their first open water dive with an instructor.
Surprisingly, very few Divemasters are aware that this professional PADI certification even exists! Because we conduct many Discover Scuba Diving courses, our Discover Scuba Diving DSD Leader internships are ongoing and usually only take 1 to 2 days.
To become a PADI DSD Leader you must:
- Be an active status PADI Divemaster.
- Complete an assessment using the PADI Instructor Manual, General Standards and Procedures Guide and Discover Scuba Diving Program Guide.
- Conduct four PADI Discover Scuba Diving courses under the direct supervision of a PADI Instructor.
We will then submit your PADI Divemaster DSD Leader Discover Scuba Diving Internship Completion Form to PADI HQ for review and certification.
From the PADI Instructor Manual (2015):
“To qualify, a PADI Divemaster completes a Discover Scuba Diving Leader internship. This includes conducting four separate real (not simulated) PADI Discover Scuba Diving programs in confined water under the direct supervision of a PADI Instructor. Divemaster interns show their ability to conduct effective briefings, in-water supervision and debriefings. Divemasters complete the Discover Scuba Diving Leader Internship Assessment, available on the Pros’ Site at padi.com. The PADI Instructor conducting the internship fills in any missing information and makes corrections as necessary to ensure a complete and well supervised Discover Scuba Diving Program for participants. During the internship, evaluate Divemasters using the following Leadership Evaluation criteria. Divemasters score at least a 3 on each performance requirement.”
Fees for our DSD Leader internship program for Divemasters includes certification cost, tanks, weights and all equipment/supplies required to teach Discover Scuba Diving courses. The fee does not include rental gear.
No, we won’t pay you for teaching or leading DSDs while under our instruction but you can keep any tips these clients might give you. 😉
