About the Divemaster Internship

divemaster internship koh tao

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

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
