Take the right career path for you and sign up for our internship programme
There is a huge international need for well trained and experienced dive professionals. Dive school and dive operators are prepared to pay good money for the right person with the right skills.
Unfortunately the big certification and training agencies do not cater for this demand and a diving instructor certification does not cover even a third of the skills required. In fact it is quite scary how easy it is to become a diving instructor today. As a result there is an oversupply of under-skilled diving instructors that earn very little. There is however a dearth of skilled professionals.
Although working as a divemaster/instructor in a palm fringed dive resort is a great experience, it is only viable for a short period of time and can not be considered as a long term career. There is however a good living to be made in being a highly skilled manager and an even better life to be had in owning your own dive operation.
It is not uncommon for fully qualified instructors to join our career courses as they realise that they do not have the skills to make a decent living in diving. Skills, experience and knowledge are gained over time and are not necessarily the best quality. It is far better to be taught “best practice” right from the start.
What is the difference between the Pro Course the Internship?
During the course, you are not locked into a 5 month obligation. If you feel you are not getting good value for money from the course you can simply leave at any time and you will not be liable for any further payment.
Interns will not earn salaries for the duration of their 6 month work obligation.
The only training exclusion is the NAUI Instructor manuals and registration that is paid to NAUI directly.
Qualifications, Certifications and Training Association
Upon completion of their highest level of training, the candidates will receive a Divetek Instructor certification.
Candidates then have the option to complete their NAUI cross over certification at an additional fee (this is set by the relevant training association).
Please note: In order to work in other facilities as an instructor, you may be required to complete a cross over to a different agency such as NAUI, CMAS, SSI, PADI, IANTD etc. After the internship this will be a “walk in the park!”
We recommend that you do not crossover to other agencies until you have a good job opportunity.
Please keep in mind that there is a very strict application process and this does not guarantee entrance to the Career Course. Our spaces are limited and we are looking for the highest calibre of candidate.
