DSD Leader

As part of your Divemaster Internship here at Lanzarote Dive Centre, we include, at no extra cost, the all essential PADI DSD Leader internship. This is the certification that enables you as a PADI Divemaster, to conduct the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) programme.

This is an important part of your dive professional development as a DM intern because it prepares you to take responsibility for 2 inexperienced student divers completing a Discover Scuba Diving experience. You will learn how to complete the paperwork, conduct a full DSD dive briefing and how to demonstrate the DSD skills to instructor level. You will learn to assess the suitability of the conditions in relation to your students abilities and inexperience, as well as assist them on the surface and below the water, ensuring the safety of yourself and your students at all times.

You will complete a minimum of 5 DSD’s under the supervision of one of our experienced instructors. During these sessions you will practice your presentation skills and take more and more of a lead role until you are completing the whole Discover Scuba Diving experience for yourself.

Becoming a DSD Leader is your first step in teaching scuba to student divers and takes you one step closer to becoming an dive professional instructor.

Your instructor may also offer the PADI Deep Diver and PADi Search and Recovery Diver specialty diver courses along with your divemaster training to help you meet all requirements and to broaden your abilities.
