At Oceano Dive Centre, the NAUI Divemaster Crossover course consists of two main phases:

  • Theory. The academic training will help you understand the skills involved in becoming a NAUI divemaster, first at home doing an eLearning then a review in our classroom with your instructor.  
  • Practical work experience. Learning all the practical skills required to work in the dive industry by teaching (selected courses), assisting in a course, working in a dive shop or taking someone for a dive.

The NAUI Divemaster rating is the highest NAUI leadership level certification with the exception of Instructor. The program is designed to train experienced and knowledgeable divers to organise and conduct enjoyable open water dives for certified divers and engage in other approved activities. An active-status NAUI Divemaster is qualified to organise and conduct dives for certified divers if the diving activities and locale approximate those in which the Divemaster is trained. Additional training, knowledge or experience is necessary for the Divemaster who desires to organise dives in a new locale. An active-status NAUI Divemaster is qualified to organise and conduct NAUI recognition programs (such as International Diver) and award appropriate recognition materials to participants. An active-status NAUI Divemaster is qualified to organise and conduct Refresher Scuba training for certified divers. Additionally, NAUI Divemasters may teach the NAUI Introduction to Scuba (confined water only), and the NAUI Skin Diver courses. An active-status NAUI Divemaster is qualified to assist an active-status NAUI Instructor in diving courses. An active-status NAUI Divemaster who completes all requirements as laid out by the NAUI Training Department, is eligible to teach the NAUI First Aid provider courses. An active-status NAUI Divemaster who possesses exceptional abilities, experience and completes all requirements as laid out by the NAUI Training Department, may teach the Underwater Archaeology, Underwater Digital Imaging, Underwater Hunter and Collector, and Underwater Naturalist courses. The active-status NAUI Divemaster MUST be approved, in advance, individually, by the NAUI Training Department to teach these courses.
