UTD’s Divemaster course is a leadership certification program designed to train UTD divers to organize and lead diving activities and assist on UTD classes. A UTD Divemaster may work as an assistant to a UTD Instructor on any class that the Divemaster is rated for.

UTD Divemasters are also considered UTD "Skills Advisors." In this role, DM's may work with divers in preparation for a class, or with students who are taking a class with a UTD instructor. UTD DM's may also lead our Annual Dive Review - a dive refresher course.

During the course of the UTD Divemaster training, the DM candidate will be performing skills to a demonstration level, similar to that of an instructor. It’s important to note that the goal of the Divemaster program is not to teach a DM candidate to dive, but to teach a DM candidate to teach and lead.

The core of the UTD Divemaster program is leadership. The DM Candidate will become comfortable coordinating classes and events, assisting in academic, land drills, and in-water training.  In many cases, this is a diver’s first step on the road to becoming a UTD Instructor.
