About the Divemaster Internship

book your divemaster internship today

The Divemaster Internship program will take you from being a complete land-lubber to a scuba diving professional with the ability to earn from diving in tropical waters all round the world! You will start by learning the basics through your PADI Open Water program then advance yourself by doing your Advanced Open Water, Emergency First Responder and PADI Rescue Diver courses. This will get you up to speed to do your main challenge, the PADI Divemaster Course.

Working closely with a PADI Instructor, in this two part course you learn to develop your dive knowledge and perfect your abilities and techniques to a professional level. Divemaster training develops your leadership skills, giving you the qualification to supervise dive activities and aid instructors with student divers.


What you learn during the Divemaster Internship

divemaster internship koh tao thailand

The Divemaster program teaches you dive leadership skills through classroom, underwater and independent study. You complete water skills and stamina training, as well as teaching exercises that increase your capacity to organize and solve diving problems as well as help others improve their diving and their experience if diving. You put this knowledge into practice during a structured internship or series of practical exercises.

"Over the time completing my Divemaster Internship, I became transformed from where I began, a still slightly timid diver - into a confident, dive addict who lives and breathes diving as my second nature!" Jana, September 2016

What's Next?

divemaster internship koh tao djl diving

Congratulations! After arriving in Thailand a couple of months ago, possibly having never dived before, you are now a fully certified Divemaster, ready to offer your skills to divers visiting Koh Tao. So what is the next step?

At DJL we try to offer employment opportunities whenever possible. We prefer to recruit Divemasters who have trained with us as they understand how our dive centre operates and have built up plenty of experience on our dive boats. In terms of training, the next step up from Divemaster is completing the PADI IDC to become a diving instructor. As a PADI 5 Star Career Development Centre we run these training courses every month. However if you are a complete beginner when you arrive here you will need to wait for a period of 6 months after completing your Open Water course before you can start trainining to become a diving instructor. If you do wish to continue on to the instructor training, spending some time working as a Divemaster beforehand can be extremely beneficial and is a great way to use your time and earn some money. You also need a minimum of 100 logged dives but this can easily be achieved using the unlimited diving you get during your divemaster training and the free fun diving for life that is also part of the divemaster internship package.

If you fall in love with Koh Tao, as many people do when they visit, the scuba diving industry can offer some great career options. A professional diving qualification can also offer amazing job opportunities worldwide, not only in Thailand and it's beautiful islands.
