So what will you actually be doing on your nternship?
We try and make your internship as similar to the role of a working Divemaster as possible. That means that each day is busy and full but
also good fun.
A typical day for a Divemaster Intern, is to arrive at the Dive Centre in the morning and begin by preparing the equipment for the days diving
This may consist of equipment for the pool, or for boat, or shore diving or all 3. The vehicles are then loaded and the customers arrive.
A strong focus is placed on good communication skills with customers who are with us at the DiveCentre, and ensuring that everyone who enters the Dive Centre or dives with us has first class experience.
Everyone heads off to do their role for the day, be this taking part in a PADI scuba diving course, assisting an Instructor / Assistant Instructor or Divemaster in the swimming pool or ocean, buddying up with a customer or on Boat Cover duty. All of these roles are equally as important and all interns will take each role during their internship.
After the days diving is done and the equipment has been washed and put away, the focus turns to Divemaster skills circuits practice, stamina practice, study and examinations.
