PADI Master Instructor
During your Internship with us your training will be given by our PADI Master Instructor Harry Bakker, who has more than 27 years of experience in the international diving industry.
We are not looking for cheap labor to work in our dive center. We offer a high quality Divemaster internship, that is taught on the job at our dive center, tailor made according to your qualification, experience and learning ability, with no short cuts!
To maintain these high standards, we have made it mandatory to undertake the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy specialty as part of the Divemaster internship with us. This course is not given in PADI standard for Divemaster and will increase the time for qualification by one day, but it will significantly enhance your skills as a diver and future Divemaster. We offer you a 20% discount on the Peak Performance Buoyancy course to make it financially easier for you.
During the Divemaster Internship program you will take part in our daily activities such as, guided dives, Discover Scuba and other courses, maintenance of dive equipment, cylinder filling, socializing and assisting divers as needed. You will be diving daily, learning from our other staff who you will work alongside. This will allow you to develop your diving knowledge, improve your practical skills and equipment knowledge. It will give you an understanding of what other divers expect from a PADI Professional Divemaster.
