1-2-1 dive tuition at Mermaids Dive Center jomtien

One To One Personal Instruction

One To One Personal Instruction

One To One – Personal Dive Instruction

One To One dive training at Mermaids thailandOne to one personal scuba dive instruction has always been offered on request from Mermaids CDC (Diver Career Development Center), Pattaya, Thailand through all regular PADI courses. It is just time that we advertised the fact that this individual dive tuition is available.

Dive students come in all shapes and sizes with different expectations, demands and goals from their diver training. Mermaids only have one goal in mind – to safely bring out the very best diver possible from within that person. Mermaids are widely known throughout the recreational dive industry for it’s thoroughness in training. We’ll extend the helpful hand to you also.

Many divers like to study in groups having peers to share ideas with and train in dive skills. The instructor always heads the groups with direct supervision and training but another student can be the buddy for the training exercise. This lends itself to a lot of fun and indeed a lot to speak about with new found friends after the diving day is done.

A usual group size is THREE – FOUR students per dive instructor and dive master

Other trainee divers prefer individual one-to-one personal tuition from a diving instructor and this is also fine and very much fun. Reasons for one-to-one tuition differ from initial shyness, or simply problems areas that the diver feels that they will benefit from having an instructor with undivided attention assist with. What ever the reason; it is fine for us to organise this and get you your individual instruction organised.

Some PADI diver courses such as the PADI Rescue diver program cannot be realistically run with just two persons: the Instructor and the Student. For example, there are scenarios where an unconscious diver in the water (below the surface and on the surface) needs to be rescued. The dive instructor cannot be the “victim” as well as your instructor assessing and guiding your skills on the course. In these instances a buddy in the group would usually assist or a Divemaster would play the role. If one-to-one tuition is required then we simply have another diver or other divers assist for these areas but the instructor will still be 100% available for the student. Mermaids offer this to all in a way to show you that you cannot get smaller class sizes any where:)

Mermaid’s CDC Pattaya Thailand wishes to provide the very best dive training for students. If you have a demand for 1-2-1 scuba tuition it is our pleasure to offer this on request. Whether this is for one dive course or through the PADI system – the choice is yours and we wish for you to feel comfortable. It is rare that we are asked for single instructor training but when we have the divers have always joined the rest of the group on the next course scheduled together.

Which ever way that you feel the dive training is required to make you as the diver as as comfortable in the water as possible – Mermaids shall strive to provide. It is very important that we build a solid foundation on your skills and knowledge as we go and not rush through anything. We have a lot of time on our side. Our goal is to successfully train you to be the best possible professional diver and achieve dive work. Your scuba diving career starts here!

NOW Working at Mermaids!

When we decided to travel to Thailand to do an Internship, everyone said to us you must be crazy!!! Sure with an 8 month old baby, we almost thought the same thing. Choosing the right Dive School was crucial for us to make our new life work and after many ups and downs searching for the right place and at the point of almost giving up our dream we contacted PJ and within hours joined up with Mermaids. Wow, they helped us with everything including finding us a fabulous nanny and a great apartment (all this before we even arrived) We have been here 7 months and are working on our MSDT and IDC Staff.

During this time, we’ve had great advice and instruction on all of our courses and ...

Good Times Leading to a Great Career!

Hey everyone, I just want to thank you all for a great 8 months in Pattaya. When I saw the website offering a scuba diving internship in Thailand I was a bit skeptical, but I have to admit it was one of the smartest moves I have made up to this point in my life. When you consider that I had NEVER been diving before coming to Thailand, and now I am a PADI professional, it is unbelievable. The hands on training provided by mermaids staff is second to none. They went out of their way to take the time to make sure I mastered the skills necessary to become not just a competent diver, but to excel and that’s what made it so special. So thanks to all you instructors, Russell, Claus, Manx, Dave...

Repeat Offender!

This is the second time I have been to Mermaids first was to do the Divemaster course which was very good and now the second which I have just done was OWSI!! All courses a taught to a very hi in the sky standard, the Course Directors, well they are the best around that’s for sure so Hats off to you Russell and Desi!! It’s been a pleasure to be part of Mermaids and I am sure I will be back!!

Divemaster Internship

After much internet research we contacted Mermaids to inquire about a divemaster internship, we received prompt and informative replies to all our questions, we also stopped by the centre on a quick visit and after seeing the operation and diving with the mermaids staff we were sold! We came to Mermaids initially for 3 months (that was 6 months ago) and after completing our DM course, we decided to stay for open water instructor training. The training at mermaids really is fantastic and having now successfully completed our OWSI training we decided to stay just a little bit longer to become specialty instructors. Not bad considering we only ever intended to be DMs!

We’ll have to ...

OWSI/MSDT Training with Mermaids

It's been 2 years since I finally completed my OWSI/MSDT training with Mermaids (I was one of those repeat offenders that just kept coming back!!)

Having now worked in the "real world" diving industry I cannot thank the amazing crew at Mermaids enough. I believe that you offer the best diver internship going around.

Several instructors I have worked with since have completed what is billed as "zero to hero" internships yet none of them have come out of their program with the kind of hands on experience and skills that I gained working under the likes of Russell, Desi, Ian B and Slinky and the awesome support staff at Mermaids.
