PADI requires that each Divemaster candidate must own a personal copy of a RDP (Recreational Dive Planner), an eRDPML (electronic Recreational Dive Planner Multi Level), pocket mask and surface signaling device.

All “Interns” must have dive insurance. www.diversalertnetwork.org is a great place for dive accident insurance.

We recommended that you budget about $500 per month for food and shopping (depending upon your tastes).
