Take the first step in your dive career and become a PADI Divemaster. Working closely with a certified Scuba Evolution instructor, you'll expand your dive knowledge and hone your skills as you become a dive professional. Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities by training you to supervise dive activities and assist instructors with student divers.
At Scuba Koh Chang, we include all instruction and required dives. The course fee does not include the equipment or course books. As the theory is quite involved many students choose to purchase and read the course materials before arriving in Thailand.
