If you elect to take the four-week option you should bear in mind that although the prerequisite for starting a course is 40 dives, we will not be able to certify you as a divemaster until you have logged 60. We therefore recommend that you should have logged around 50 dives prior to your arrival, and that you have completed the required reading: manual and encyclopedia.
