Divemaster internship information
You can complete the Divemaster internship in as little as 1 week, if already a Rescue Diver, via our Fast Track internship or the standard 6 weeks for all other levels, including non-certified. The duration of your internship can be increased, depending on the time and finances you have available.
We accept all levels of diving certification and even non-divers who want a new challenge are more than welcome. Age is no barrier to becoming a diving professional either. The minimum entry age is 18, as for the oldest, there is no restriction. We have had candidates “retraining” for their new career after they had retired from work at 67 years young!
We are totally unique from all other Dive Centres. We have had many years of experience in the diving industry, and running Dive Centres, and understand that it is not conducive to work 10 hours a day, 6 days a week in scorching heat, looking after others, whilst trying to learn to be a Professional Diver!
Another unique quality of our internships is we operate 5 days per week, so that gives you 2 days to absorb what you have learnt, get up to date on your reading, relax on the beach, or even go surfing!
But what about “on the job” experience? We have that covered. As you progress and pass your various diving courses you will be given more and more Dive Centre tasks to complete under the guidance of your Instructor Team. This builds your confidence and allows you to experience what being a Divemaster is all about. In addition we are affiliated to several Dive Centres in Tenerife and when the time is right, and all parties agree, you can complete experience days with them, if you want.
During your time with us you will learn to be a dive guide and teaching assistant. Also we teach you how to maintain the diving equipment and obviously lots and lots of diving !
Throughout your internship our Team will be on hand to ensure you will have a great time and give you loads of assistance.
Accommodation is now FREE, yes totally FREE, for those enrolled on the Divemaster programs.
All diving is FREE for the whole duration you are with us, that’s right UNLIMITED DIVING, some of our interns manage over 100 dives!
The majority of our Divemaster’s have gone on to use the qualification for employment in some form or for continuing their education. Some are now working Divemaster’s others continued on to be Instructors.
The Divemaster internship candidate places are limited, and on a first come, first served basis.
We run the internships all year round, however in the summer places are very limited due to our popularity. We are unique in allowing YOU to decide when your internship starts! We don’t have start dates as we understand everyone has different schedules and at the end of the day, its YOUR internship!
Don’t worry, as there are crossovers for all levels of PADI, BSAC, SSAC, CMAS, FEDAS, SSI, NAUI, SAA, SCOT SAC etc, so just let us know what agency and what level you are and we will tell you the next level required.
English not your first language? No problem, we have had candidates on our internships from more than 25 countries. The materials come in over 40 languages, although you must have basic conversational English to start the internship. During your time with us your English will improve HUGELY and who knows you can teach us a few words of your language too.
To begin the internship you must be:
- 18 years old
- Be fit for diving
- Able to swim
- Ready for a life changing experience
