PADI Dive Master Internship Program
Dive Master Internship
The Mermaids PADI Dive Master Internship is the original and first DM internship operated globally. The DM interns learn to scuba dive and become a PADI professional Divemaster within our intensive 4 month diving internship program. (The program can be shortened if required). This course is held in Pattaya (Jomtien), Chonburi, Thailand. Once qualified as a dive master you will be eligible to assist instructors with student training, conduct open ocean dive tours for certified divers and assist with the day to day operation of a functional dive shop. This is the first professional “internationally recognized” rating on the PADI ladder but can be used as a passport to work in most countries world wide.
