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. 
What are you waiting for - become PADI instructor!

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.

The internship package includes the following courses:

  • EFR Instructor Course
  • EFR – CFC (Care for Children)

* as an option you can also include in your package the PADI business seminars: Business of Nitrox
     (BON) and Business Training for PADI PROs  

Your internship includes all of the following:
  • 5 PADI Instructor Specialty courses of your choice (from 13) – see our recommendation above

  • As an option  All PADI fees paid for your IDC, IE, EFR instructor and Instructor Specialty Courses – or pay them directly to PADI as you go along
