The Divemaster course program is conducted by Instructor. The course takes between 2-6 weeks, although it can be tailored to your own time restraints. The Divemaster is your first step to becoming a PADI Dive Pro.

After the course we can assist you with job placement – or we’ll be happy for you to stay on and work with us.

The PADI Assistant Instructor is excellent preparation for an IDC, and industry demands show it also makes you a more employable Divemaster.
Upon being certified as an AI, you can independently conduct the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy and Project AWARE Specialty courses. With further training you are also able to teach the Emergency First Responder and Equipment Specialist courses.

A great program for planning to do their IDC at a later date.

What Quiver students have said about us:


Devsiri Peiris



I had a wonderful experience when I came to Quiver IDC Dive centre early this year. The Instructor Development course was excellent and their staff were very experienced and good mentors for all of us Instructor candidates. The Dive centre and facilties are well organised and well stream lined.

It was a very enjoyable and fun experience especially with all the very friendly and helpful dive staff. Quiver Team makes a wonderful IDC centre which I recommend to all Dive Masters who want to complete their Instructor Course.

While traveling around south-east Asia in October of 2009, I came to Quiver to do my PADI Open Water course. I really enjoyed learning about diving and hanging out with the guys from quiver that I decided to complete all the courses up to Divemaster. I was sold on the diving industry and in May 2010 I passed my instructor exams and I am now a PADI Instructor. If I had never walked into the Quiver dive shop I doubt I would have found this amazing lifestyle. Thanks Guys!

I worked as a certified Divemaster with Quiver Dive Team after doing all my diving certifications through them and had a brilliant time.

I worked with some amazing people and showed lots of Fun Divers all the best dive sites that the Perhentian Islands have to offer.

I would recommend both learning how to Dive and going out for Fun Dives to anyone fortunate enough to head out to The Perhentian Islands”.

Merci Quiver…

I did my IDC in 2009 on the Perhentians with Quiver dive team… let say by chance. I was just heading there to do a bit of work as a divemaster waiting to go to Thailand for my IDC… then I found the Quiver team who offered to do the IDC with them! That was perfect because it was just what I did needed to become an instructor. Not a too big place, but just enought to get some good experience; the perfect staff were very funny and helped me all the way from the pre IDC, allowing me to learn under instructors; until the IE (which we all passed); as well the after IE party ; )

I’m now an instructor and I’ve been working in Asia and Egypt, and I always knew that if I got the keys today to be a good instructor it’s because the guys at Quiver helped me so much. Any body can get an Instructor card, but the most important is to feel valuable on the diving market after it, and this is only a matter of pre diving education.

Thanks Quiver, I’m happy to give some good words for you, see you soon.
