Divemaster to PADI Instructor Internship

Divemaster to PADI Instructor Internship

Congratulations on being a PADI Divemaster already. You have come this far and you know what achievement it was to get to this level. If you have worked in the dive industry already then you`ll also know how rewarding this is. 
As a Divemaster (from any dive organization) you know that you can assist dive instructors, lead fun dives, assist in the shop and help with many dive related things. 


The next step in your diving career and to make you very employable is the Open Water Scuba Instructor (OWSI) level - allowing you to perform many additional duties and being more desirable to dive employers.

You can take your IDC anywhere in any IDC center. There you'll be trained over a 2 week period and then let loose to find work. You'll find plenty of dive centers with this offer. We however do not like to work this way. Through hard work and dedication to diver training over the past many years, we have gained a reputation that our IDC College produces highly employable dive professionals. We have earned this reputation through our PADI 5* CDC (Career Development Center) status and our special internship programs.   

You are a Divemaster and wish to upgrade to PADI instructor. We have a great package that trains you over a 2 month period to be one of the very best instructors.
