PADI Instructor Internship

Program Information

Ideal for PADI Open Water divers and Divemasters who dream of becoming highly qualified and specialised PADI instructors, with extensive marine conservation training. PADI Instructors make for more versatile employees than Divemasters, so if you're planning on choosing it as a career path, this customised, professional programme focused on marine conservation and its best practices is perfect for you. Selected interns will be given the opportunity to return to our marine conservation expedition base as PADI Open Water Instructors!

Overview

Welcome to our flagship program.

Our flagship program includes marine conservation training, Divemaster training and a dive shop placement, preparing you for our tailor made Instructor Development Course (IDC) and Master Scuba Diver Trainer course (MSDT).

We give you world-class professional-level training that is transferable to any dive-industry application, distinctively unique as our training is environmentally focused, with extensive conservation understanding and training. In 30 weeks, you will be qualified as a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, with the training and ability to work and teach around the world, with specific diving, marine conservation, biology and work experience.

This is a one-of-a-kind program, facilitating access to an industry where conservation knowledge and understanding will set you apart from and above the rest.

Important: if you are already PADI Divemaster qualified, and/or have extensive marine conservation training already, please do speak to us about tailoring this program for you. Options are available to complete the program without these elements.

Your 30 weeks will consist of the following

Marine Conservation Training – 12 weeks

PADI Divemaster Course (Internship & Placement) – 12 weeks

IDC & MSDT Course – 6 weeks

Why an IDC & MSDT?

With very few exceptions, the main business of any dive centre is training, and given that only Instructors can conduct most PADI programs, the hiring standard at most dive centres is Instructors, rather than Divemasters. They make much more versatile employees and our programs will turn you into a very well rounded dive professional ready to work in this demanding industry. The addition of the MSDT preparation program adds to your versatility as an instructor, as you will be able to offer additional, sought after speciality courses to your customers. The PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer rating sets you apart as a dive instructor who takes continuing education seriously and is committed to teaching a variety of courses.

Marine Conservation Focus

Our PADI IDC & MSDT course is unique as it focuses and builds on the diving, conservation, biology and work experience that you will have learnt on our Divemaster Internship and marine training program. Complemented with a purpose-built, instructor-level training program heavily focused on conservation best practices, it will make you uniquely qualified to enter the scuba industry to work for operations located within Marine Protected Areas or otherwise.

We are currently the only organisation which implements a program like this, giving you unparalleled training, knowledge and experience which cannot be replicated elsewhere. You will work with members of our team who are marine biologists and/or have considerable training in the field, and have experience in research diving and working as Marine Park guides, so you will have fantastic opportunities to build on the conservation skills learnt on your expedition.

Scuba Diving Requirements

Before you start the internship, you will need to be qualified to at least PADI Open Water, or equivalent.
