Divemaster is the first step in becoming a dive professional and a great way to gain a lot of diving experience while improving your knowledge and skills.  

We believe that the best way to become a skilled divemaster is by getting real, hands-on, experience. With this in mind, we have designed an immersive Divemaster Training Program where you participate in various classroom and in-water workshops. You also assist experienced instructors on actual courses to allow you to put your knowledge and skills to work. And, you get unlimited dives during your Divemaster Training Program! 

Divemaster Training Program

Instructor Training Program

Introducing new divers to the underwater world is extremely rewarding!  You get to experience the awe and joy you yourself experienced when you first learned to dive through the eyes of your students. Our Instructor Training Program will teach you how to effectively pass on your knowledge and skills to new divers so that you can see the glee in their faces when come up from their first few dives while knowing that you are creating safe and conscientious divers!


Instructor Internship Program

Our Instructor Internship Program offers you a chance to work under one of our experienced Instructor Mentors.  With their guidance, you will teach a variety of courses, from Try Dives to Open Water courses to specialties courses, with real students at Roctopus Dive.  You will learn how to coordinate courses and problem solve while ensuring your students have a positive diving experience.  You will also get credited for the certifications of your students during your internship, so that you can prepare your CV for a career in diving.


Specialty Training Programs

One of the great things about diving is that there are so many ways to make each dive experience your own! With specialty training programs, you have a chance to  broaden your experience and knowledge in specific areas of diving that interest you so that you can customize your dives. Learn how to safely penetrate a wreck in our Wreck Specialty course, extend your bottom time with our Nitrox course, or learn how to effectively plan and execute deep dives up to 40 meters in our Deep Diver course.  We offer it all, and more!

  • 5 star review  Best diving school on the island! My boyfriend and I did all our training to instructor level with Rocto and wouldn't have had it any other way. Its all about the awesome vibe on and off the boat. Hope to be back again some day!

    5 star review  After living on the island for quite a while I finally decided to do my Instructor course but wanted to go with someone that I'd be comfortable with. Knowing quite a few people on the island that could help me out and after weighing my options I finally decided to go with Peter Galea at Rocto. His knowledge, patience, humor and calm demeanor really helped me with my nerves and passing the exam. He'll even put in extra time or practice with you on your request, even if he thinks you don't really need it. Everything is organised really well and we had fun while doing it. I can not recommend Pete enough! Go for it!

    5 star review  I came across Roctopus by chance doing my open water, and was overwhelmed by the closeness and inclusivity of their dive community. Ended up changing my plans and staying with the team to become a pro diver. They teach to the highest standard, are professional and supportive, but most importantly will become your friends. I trained with Pete and Steve, but the whole team are great. Can't recommend them enough.

  • 5 star review  Roctopus Pro Center is an amazing place to follow a professional dive course. The instructors are very serious about their jobs, yet give the course very playful and fun; meaning you learn a lot and are having the time of your life. This dive center really made me fall in love with diving, and I have followed courses and worked for different schools after. Seeing so many different school I can truly say that of all the years diving professionally, i have always found that the teachers at Roctopus Pro Center have given me the most fun course and professional training.

    5 star review  I went zero to hero with Roctopus (open water all the way through to Dive Master) and I honestly couldn’t recommend a better place. Every instructor/dive master at Rocto are so friendly and helpful. You’ll make friends for life with this awesome crew and become an amazing diver!

    thumb Morgan Trestrail

    5 star review  Without any doubt it's the best Pro shop on the island! I did my research before coming there and reassure it many times afterwards. Completed Dive Master course all the way to Instructor with the most experienced trainers. Got tons of knowledge, lots of fun and a whole new diving family. Also need to mention that guys are very flexible compare to other schools. Highly recommended!

  • 5 star review  I started my DMT with Roctopus Pro back in May. Since then I decided to take a couple of extra courses, including Sidemount, Advanced Wreck and Deco 50, with the shop. I can't recommend doing these courses with Roctopus Pro enough, the instructors go above and beyond industry requirements for each course and truly made me feel like a more confident diver with each course I finished. I'd particular like to thank Stephen Crosby for his time and effort on all the courses I took!

    5 star review  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Best dive school on Koh Tao. I completed my open water with Roctopus three years ago, and knew there was no other place I would dream of doing my dive master course. The whole team is amazing and so passionate. Looking at divers from other schools, you can see that Roctopus DMT's are better in the water. Choosing RAID as my agency was also a great choice. Keep up the amazing work guys, I'll be back to do my instructor course soon!

    5 star review  Top-notch school, top-notch professionals and top-notch location with great facilities right by the beach is what you are looking for and this what you'll find at Roctopus. All that topped up with 100% guaranteed fun on and off the boat! You will learn and you will fall in love for diving, and will leave the island with an experience for life. Having been part of the team for a little while in the past, I know that firsthand. You can be sure you will never regret your choice -don't look any further, just do it!
